Bellhaven Drills Metallurgical Holes in High-Grade Core of La Cantera Deposit at La Mina Project
Vancouver, British Columbia – April 19, 2012. Bellhaven Copper & Gold Inc. (TSX-Venture: BHV) (“Bellhaven” or the “Company”) is pleased to report assay results from two metallurgical drill holes at the La Mina Project in Colombia (Figure 1). Drill holes LME-1056 and LME-1059 are located within the La Cantera resource area (Figure 2). These holes were designed to confirm significant intercepts from earlier drilling at La Cantera spanning multiple styles of mineralization and host rocks. The assays from the new holes yielded excellent agreement with the previously drilled holes over intervals of more than 100 metres that averaged 1.54 and 1.32 g/t gold equivalent, respectively.

Bellhaven Continues to Report +1.0 g/t Gold-Equivalent from Near-Surface Drilling at the Middle Zone
Vancouver, British Columbia – March 22, 2012. Bellhaven Copper & Gold Inc. (TSX-Venture: BHV) (“Bellhaven” or the “Company”) is pleased to report drill results from the four latest holes at the Middle Zone at the La Mina Project in Colombia (Figure 1). Each of these Middle Zone holes intercepted significant mineralization from near-surface, including:
• LME-1057 - 92.25m averaging 0.88 g/t Au and 0.11% Cu, or 1.07 g/t Au Equiv
• LME-1060 - 80.60m averaging 0.66 g/t Au and 0.32% Cu, or 1.20 g/t Au Equiv

Bellhaven Discovers a New Gold–Copper Porphyry at La Mina, Colombia
Vancouver, British Columbia – February 29, 2012. Bellhaven Copper & Gold Inc. (TSX-Venture: BHV) (“Bellhaven” or the “Company”) is pleased to release the first drill results from the La Garrucha prospect at the La Mina Project in the Cauca Belt of Colombia. The Company drilled six core holes into this newly discovered porphyry gold-copper system: LME-1037, -1039, -1040, -1042, -1044, and -1047. These drill holes targeted geophysical and geochemical anomalies, including rock-chip samples that exceed 0.7 g/t Au. These holes confirm La Garrucha as the fourth drill-indicated porphyry deposit on the La Mina concession.

Bellhaven Drills Best Hole to Date at Middle Zone: 98m at 1.24 g/T Au, 0.14% Cu, or 1.50 g/t Au Equivalent Vancouver, British Columbia
Bellhaven Copper & Gold Inc. (TSX-Venture: BHV) (“Bellhaven” or the “Company”) is pleased to release drill results from holes LME-1049 through LME-1053 at the Middle Zone deposit. Drilling at the La Mina Project in Colombia continues with two core rigs on site. The latest results include the best intercept yet from the Middle Zone deposit. Drill hole LME-1052 intersected 98m averaging 1.24 g/t Au, 0.14% Cu, or 1.50 g/t Au equivalent from only 6 meters depth. This intercept is even more important because it significantly expands the volume of this gold-rich style of mineralization both laterally and vertically. These results also include an intercept of 140m grading 0.48 g/t Au and 0.18% Cu, or 0.79 g/t Au equivalent in hole LME-1051.
