Mining Stock News: Copper Fox (TSXV: CUU) (OTC Pink: CPFXF) Announces 2021 Schaft Creek Program


Calgary, Alberta - March 3, 2021 (Newsfile Corp.) ( Newswire) Copper Fox Metals Inc. (TSXV: CUU) (OTC Pink: CPFXF) ("Copper Fox" or the "Company") is pleased to provide its shareholders an outline of the 2021 program for the Schaft Creek copper-gold-molybdenum-silver project located in northwestern British Columbia. The Schaft Creek project is managed through the Schaft Creek Joint Venture ("SCJV"). Teck Resources Limited ("Teck") is the Operator of the SCJV and holds a 75% interest with Copper Fox holding the remaining 25% interest.

2021 Program Highlights:

Elmer B. Stewart, President and CEO of Copper Fox, stated, "The proposed 2021 program is focused on confirming value add opportunities identified over the past two years at Schaft Creek. The work plan focuses on obtaining additional information to confirm opportunities to lower capital and operating costs, and refine project infrastructure requirements to increase value. A significant aspect of the 2021 program will be to continue our engagement with the Tahltan Nation."

Program Summary:
Complete up to a 4,000-metre drill program and associated metallurgical and geotechnical testwork to provide information to confirm select value opportunities. The 2021 program will confirm throughput assumptions, improved metal recoveries, metal production, and ensure a capital efficient 'fit for purpose' process design flowsheet. The collection of additional geotechnical information in the proposed pit area may provide opportunities to decrease the LOM strip ratio and reduce operational cost and associated greenhouse gas emissions.

Geometallurgical Drilling:
The geometallurgical drilling is directed at collecting samples representative of the geometallurgical domains in the mine plan to conduct comminution, open and closed-circuit flotation, mineralogical analysis, and tailings thickening/filtration testing. The laboratory component of the program will take place in early 2022.

Geotechnical Drilling:
The geotechnical drilling within the pit area will provide data to confirm pit slope angles, decrease the LOM strip ratio, and reduce operational cost and associated greenhouse gas emissions.

Environmental Activities:
The planned environmental work is a continuation of environmental baseline monitoring focused on climatology and hydrology, baseline flora and fauna data, and an updated review of project regulatory requirements in accordance with the current project configuration to inform an updated permitting timeline.

In addition to the above technical activities, a significant component of the 2021 program includes continued social-economic interaction with the Tahltan Nation.
