Sherwood Reports High Rainfall Temporarily Restricts Access to Its Minto Mine, Production Not Affected

Yukon Water Board Grants Permission for Release of Treated Water from Water Storage Pond

Vancouver, British Columbia –(Aug. 27, 2008) – Sherwood Copper Corporation (TSX VENTURE:SWC)(TSX VENTURE:SWC.DB) today announced that exceptionally high rainfall over the past several days, on top of an already wet summer, resulted in the temporary closure of the Klondike Highway to Whitehorse, flooding of its access road to its Minto Mine and excessive water inflows into its water storage pond from the surrounding hills. Despite diverting as much run-off as possible into the Phase 1 open pit (below where mining is currently occurring), the water storage pond was likely to overflow, so permission was requested from and granted by the Yukon Water Board to discharge excess stored water in a controlled manner. The Minto Mine stores water behind a dam to ensure there is sufficient water available for processing operations throughout the normally relatively dry summers and frozen winters in the Yukon. The Klondike Highway has subsequently opened to single lane traffic and repairs have begun on the mine access road. The Minto Mine is owned and operated by Minto Explorations Ltd. (“MintoEx”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Sherwood Copper Corp.
