Hamilton, Bermuda: 13 October 2004 - Ascendant Holdings, Ltd. (AHH.BH-Bermuda) announced today a plan to spin-off two of their copper projects into a new corporate structure which they intend to take public through an Initial Public Offering on a major international exchange in the first quarter of 2005.
