CALGARY, Alberta, Sept. 28, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Copper Fox Metals Inc. (“Copper Fox” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: CUU – OTC-Pink: CPFXF) is pleased to announce that its unaudited interim consolidated July 31, 2018 financial statements have been filed on SEDAR. 

All of the Company’s material subsidiaries are wholly owned, except for District Copper Corp. (formerly named Carmax Mining Corp.) (“District”) (TSX-V: DCOP), of which the Company owns 39.51% of the outstanding common shares.  These unaudited interim consolidated financial statements include 100% of the assets and liabilities related to District and include a non-controlling interest portion, representing 60.49% of District’s assets and liabilities that are not owned by the Company. 

For the nine months ended July 31, 2018, Copper Fox had a net loss of $1,320,825 (July 31, 2017 – $1,041,591) which equated to $0.00 loss per share (July 31, 2017 - $0.00 loss per share). 

During the nine months ended July 31, 2018, the Company incurred $162,831 in expenditures toward furthering the development of its Schaft Creek, Van Dyke, Sombrero Butte and Mineral Mountain copper projects.  Copies of the financial statements, notes, and related management discussion and analysis may be obtained on SEDAR at www.sedar.com, the Company’s web site at www.copperfoxmetals.com or by contacting the Company directly.  All references to planned activities and technical information contained in this news release have been previously announced by way of news releases.  All amounts are expressed in Canadian dollars unless otherwise stated.

Elmer B. Stewart, President and CEO of Copper Fox, stated, “Copper Fox is pleased with the progress on the Schaft Creek project.  The multi-disciplinary approach adopted in 2018 is being used to enhance the value of the project by investigating various sizing and investment scenarios (milling and open pit) targeting potential cost reductions, a higher-grade initial starter pit and other opportunities to improve project economics.  The expanded porphyry “footprint” at Mineral Mountain is encouraging and warrants additional exploration to advance the project to the drilling stage by better delineating the structural controls and extent of the porphyry copper mineralization/alteration.”

2018 Q3 Highlights:

a) At Schaft Creek, the desktop studies are progressing, focusing in part on describing a phased development approach that targets potential capital, operating and sustaining cost reductions, a higher-grade initial starter pit and identifying other opportunities to improve project economics;

b) The Multi-Year Area Based Permit (“MYAB”) for the Schaft Creek project has been received from the Ministry of Mines for British Columbia.  The main activities covered pursuant to the MYAB include approval for up to 50 diamond drill holes, 5 kms of new drill road, and 20 kms of line cutting; none of which are planned at this stage;

c) At Mineral Mountain a sampling program on Target #2 and an airborne (magnetic and radiometric) geophysical survey are planned; and

d) District has completed a program on their Eaglehead porphyry copper project consisting primarily of re-logging and where necessary, sampling or re-sampling historical drill core.  Analytical results from the program will be released once received from District.

Elmer B. Stewart, MSc. P. Geol., President of Copper Fox, is the Company’s non-independent, nominated Qualified Person pursuant to National Instrument 43-101, Standards for Disclosure for Mineral Projects, and has reviewed and approves the scientific and technical information disclosed in this news release.
