Frontera Copper Announces the Temporary Suspension of Mining at Its Piedras Verdes Mine in Mexico, With Leaching Operations to Continue; Third Quarter 2008 Earnings Release Scheduled for November 12; Conference Call Scheduled for November 13
           


<p>TORONTO and PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwire - November 11, 2008) -  Frontera Copper Corporation (<exchange name="TSX">TSX</exchange>: <ticker name="FCC">FCC</ticker>) (<exchange name="TSX">TSX</exchange>: <ticker name="FCC.NT">FCC.NT</ticker>) (<exchange name="TSX">TSX</exchange>: <ticker name="FCC.NT.A">FCC.NT.A</ticker>) today announced that in response to the
recent downturn in copper prices, mining activities at its Piedras Verdes
Operations in Mexico will be temporarily suspended.  Copper production will
continue on a gradually declining basis while leaching operations will
proceed on an uninterrupted basis to recover copper from ores previously
placed on the leach pads.  This action will result in the near-term
reduction of approximately 100 employees at Piedras Verdes, not including
people who are employed by the Company's mining and engineering
contractors.
