About Copper Fox

Copper Fox is a Canadian-based mining company listed on the TSX-Venture (CUU). The Company has concentrated its project activities exclusively to the Schaft Creek mineral property, one of the largest undeveloped copper, gold, molybdenum and silver deposits in Canada. Schaft Creek comprises 20,932 hectares situated in northwest British Columbia, Canada at 57° 21' N latitude and 130° 59' W longitude on the eastern slopes of the coastal mountain ranges. Fortunately, the location is situated between the highway and the glaciers in the area, and also benefits from a significantly lower average precipitation of rain and snowfall compared to the Pacific (west) side of these same ranges.

The preliminary mining plan is designed to extract the core 713.3 million tonnes of a Measured and Indicated, 43-101 compliant, mineral resource grading 0.304% copper, 0.218 g/t gold, 1.77 g/t silver, and 0.020% molybdenum, for a copper equivalent based on Case 2 metal pricing of 0.663% and a waste to ore ratio of 1.66 over 31 years, within the current NI 43-101 Mineral Resource of 1.4 billion tonnes, using a 0.20% CuEq cut off. Copper Fox holds the property pursuant to an option agreement with Teck Cominco Limited and may acquire up to a 93.4% direct and indirect interest in the property. Copper Fox has delivered notice to Teck Cominco that it has surpassed the $15,000,000 threshold of qualifying expenditures and has earned a direct 70% interest in Schaft Creek. Title to the property is in good standing before the BC Government until 2018.
