Copper Fox Metals Inc. (TSXV:CUU) together with its 100 percent owned subsidiary Desert Fox Copper Inc. announced analytical results for the first three drill holes at the verification drilling program at its Van Dyke copper deposit. Diamond drill hole (DDH) VD14-01 has extended the western limits of the copper mineralization in the Van Dyke oxide copper deposit by roughly 40 meters, and intersected 0.33 percent copper over an interval of 0.91 meters.
As quoted in the press release:
Copper Fox is also pleased to report that on July 25, 2014, BC Hydro announced the completion of the Northwest Transmission Line extending from Terrace to Bob Quinn, British Columbia, Canada. The hydroelectricity from this 287Kv line is expected to provide power to the large, advanced stage mineral projects in this area, such as the Schaft Creek project, a Joint Venture between Teck Resources Limited and Copper Fox.
Copper Fox president, Elmer B. Stewart, said:
The total copper and total soluble copper concentrations in these three holes are encouraging. Testwork to determine the percentage copper recovery is in progress and an interim progress report is expected shortly. The combination of assay results and percentage copper recovery are required before commencing a resource estimation and are the first steps in accessing the potential value of the Van Dyke oxide copper deposit.
