Copper Fox Provides Update on Eaglehead Copper Project

Copper Fox Provides Update on Eaglehead Copper Project

Copper Fox Metals Inc. (TSXV: CUU) (OTCQX: CPFXF)  ("Copper Fox" or the "Company") through its wholly owned subsidiary Northern Fox Copper Inc. is pleased to provide an update on its 100% owned Eaglehead polymetallic porphyry copper project located approximately 50 kilometers ('km') east of Dease Lake, British Columbia. The Eaglehead project covers a large portion (16,492.62 ha) of the Lower Jurassic age (+-195Ma), Eaglehead stock. Field work commenced in mid-June. A summary of activities completed in anticipation of receipt of the permit to conduct drilling operations are noted below:

Summary of Activities

  • Approval for the Notice of Work ("NoW") to conduct the proposed drilling program is still pending.
  • Ongoing review of historical drill cores has located additional un-sampled, mineralized (chalcopyrite +/-bornite) intervals. Sampling of these intervals is in progress.
  • The final report on the findings of the 2022 Archaeological survey is pending.
  • The water quality surveys completed in 2022 show no appreciable changes in water quality.
  • Field investigation of the four previously identified targets resulted in two targets for future exploration.

Elmer B. Stewart, President and CEO of Copper Fox stated, "The delay in receipt of the permit to conduct the drilling program is becoming critical to the completion of the proposed 4-5-week drilling program due to the rapidly approaching end of the summer season. The work related to updating the geological model continues to locate additional drill holes with unsampled mineralized intervals (chalcopyrite with minor bornite and molybdenum) indicating the mineralized envelopes in the Bornite and East zones could be larger than initially modelled."

Drilling
The Permit required to conduct the proposed 2022 drilling program remains pending. The Permit approval process requires a site visit which was completed in early July. The Company continues to contact the relevant authority to determine status of the Permit. The proposed drilling will test the 500-meter-long interval (the "Gap") between the Bornite and East zones to test continuity of the mineralization. Location of the proposed 2022 drilling program were shown in a news release dated June 13, 2022.

Archaeology and Water Quality Surveys
Preliminary results of the archeological review of the proposed access route and drill hole location failed to locate artifacts of a historical or cultural nature. Receipt of the final report on the Archeological review is pending. Analytical results of the stream water monitoring program have yielded no appreciable changes in water quality since the start of the 2022 program.

Elmer B. Stewart, MSc. P. Geol., President and CEO 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.

Ascendant Reports Significant Metallurgical Improvements at Its Lagoa Salgada VMS Project, Portugal

Ascendant Reports Significant Metallurgical Improvements at Its Lagoa Salgada VMS Project, Portugal

  • Results demonstrate ability to produce saleable and highly marketable Zinc and Lead concentrates from the Primary Massive Sulphide domain.
  • Significant improvement in Zinc recoveries (13% increase) and concentrate grades (22% increase) compared to the Feasibility Study.
  • Metallurgical results, completed at coarser grind sizes supporting simplified flow sheet and lower capital and operating costs relative to the Feasibility Study.
  • Further improvement anticipated from additional ongoing metallurgical optimization test work.

Ascendant Resources Inc. (TSX:ASND)(OTCQX:ASDRF);(FRA:2D9) ("Ascendant" or the "Company") provides an update on the optimization metallurgical test program on the primary massive sulphides ("PMS") domain at Lagoa Salgada. The Massive Sulphides are the highest margin domain and a large value driver of NPV for the Lagoa Salgada Project. Bench scale metallurgical testing on composite samples from the PMS ore body were completed by Maelgwyn Metallurgical Laboratories (South Africa) with oversight from Minepro Solutions (Spain) and DRA Global (South Africa

Following completion of the July 2023 43-101 Feasibility Study ("FS"), Ascendant initiated an optimization program for metallurgical performance to improve metal recoveries, concentrate grades and characterization of the deleterious elements in order to enhance the revenue potential for its Lagoa Salgada Project. The initial phase of the optimization program has been focused on the Primary Massive Sulphide mineralization from its Venda Nova North Sector, as this zone is the major revenue contributor for the project and is exploited early in the mine life. In addition to the metallurgical work, the company continues to progress its environmental permitting activities and expects to be granted the permit in Q3/24 which would position Lagoa Salgada as the next mine ready project on the Iberian Pyrite belt.
