Copper Fox Metals Inc. releases more assay results from its 2006

Calgary Alberta-December 19, 2006 -- Copper Fox Metals Inc. ("Copper Fox" or "the Company") (TSX-V: CUU) is pleased to announce assay results from 10 new drill holes from the Main Liard Zone and 5 new drill holes from the West Breccia Zone areas from this year's drilling program at the Schaft Creek copper/gold world class mineral deposit in north western British Columbia.

Six of the 10 drill holes from the Main Liard Zone are PQWL (41/2 in.) and the others are HQWL. (31/2 in.) The PQWL drill holes were part of a program designed to confirm the grades of historic drilling at Schaft Creek and to collect metallurgical samples. The HQWL holes drilled in the Main Liard Zone were designed to better delineate previously identified zones of higher grade. The Company expects assay results from the nine remaining drill holes from the 2006 program shortly.

Main Liard Zone
Drill hole 06CF260 twinned historic drill hole T81CH194. Several important sections were intersected including 27.5m grading 0.64% copper and 0.29 g/t gold starting at 24.4m, and 12.2m grading 0.56% copper and 0.34 g/t gold starting at 76.3m.

Drill hole 06CF261 twinned drill hole H68CH032. A section from 183.0m graded 0.30% copper and 0.17 g/t gold over 9.2m.

Drill Hole 06CF264 was drilled from the same site as 06CF243 but at a steeper angle and averaged a slightly lower grade for copper and gold.
The hole included two sections of 9.2m grading 0.54% copper and 0.51% copper at 137.3m and 219.6m respectively.

Drill hole 06CF268 twinned DDHSS-02 and is highlighted by a section of 12.2m assaying 0.77% copper and 0.26 g/t gold starting at 149.5m.

Drill hole 06CF269 twinned H71CH086. This hole confirmed and improved slightly on the historic copper and gold grades. An important intersection in hole 06CF269 was 9.2m (from 18.3m) which assayed 0.55% copper and 0.53 g/t gold.

Drill hole 06CF272, drilled at azimuth of 45 degrees to confirm the geology, intersected three zones in the lower section of the drill hole over lengths of 6.1m, 6.1m and 18.3m that assayed 0.56-0.57% copper and 0.34-0.40 g/t gold.

Drill hole 06CF273 drilled at the same location as 06CF272 at azimuth of 45 degrees but at a steeper angle confirmed the results from 06CF272. The hole intersected 9.2m (from 146.4m) that assayed 0.40% copper and 0.76 g/t gold and another zone at 183.0m that assayed 0.51% copper and 0.61 g/t gold over 15.3m.

Drill hole 06CF274 encountered significant intersections of 0.43% copper and 1.05 g/t gold over 18.3m (from 125.1m), 0.42% copper and
0.59 g/t gold over 9.2m (from 146.4m), 0.51% copper and 0.43 g/t gold over 6.1m (from 234.9m), and 0.45% copper and 0.31 g/t gold over 12.2m (from 244.0m).

Drill hole 06CF275 was drilled at the same site as T81CH155 but was angled to the west. The copper results were comparable with the previous hole but gold values were higher (0.34 g/t vs. 0.19 g/t) over the length of the hole. Between 45.8m and 323.3m five mineralized zones were intersected ranging from 0.46-0.55% copper and 0.38-0.84g/t gold over widths of 6.1m to 12.2m.

Drill hole 06CF276 twinned a previous hole and returned slightly higher copper values and significantly higher gold values (0.26 g/t vs. of 0.10 g/t). Three zones of interest were encountered: 0.98% copper and 1.20 g/t gold were intersected over 5.7m (from 3.5m), 0.53% copper and
0.34 g/t gold assayed over 24.4m (from 292.8m), and 0.50% copper and
0.11 g/t gold (338.6m - End of Hole at 347.7m).

West Breccia Zone
Drill holes 06CF279, 06CF280, 06CF281, 06CF282 and 06CF283 were drilled into the outer areas of this zone and successfully defined its limits.


The Company has completed updating the technical database required to complete the new geological model which will be used in the upcoming Resource Calculation.

"These drilling results confirm the existence of the mineral deposit known as the Schaft Creek porphyry copper-molybdenum-gold deposit,"
says Guillermo Salazar, President and CEO of Copper Fox Metals Inc., who also states that "the company and its technical personnel and consultants are now working on a summary report that will include a new resource calculation, bulk metallurgical testing, preliminary engineering and the first economic re-valuation of the mineral deposit for public disclosure since early 1980. Our aim is to have this report finished by March of 2007."

Guillermo Salazar, Director, President and CEO of Copper Fox Metals Inc. and Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101 has reviewed and approved the information contained in this news release.
