Copper

Fabled Copper Corp. ("Fabled Copper" or the "Company") (CSE:FABL)(FSE:XZ7) announces the 11th set of results of 2021 surface field work on it's Muskwa Copper Project comprised of the Neil Property and the Toro Property in Northern British Columbia. The Company also holds rights to the Bronson Property. See Figure 1 below

Figure 1 - Location Map

Peter Hawley, President, CEO reports; A total of 19 specific areas were mapped and prospected during the 2021 field season and we have previously reported our findings on the Lady Luck occurrence in the south end of the Neil Property, followed by the Mac; the 8A, Harris, the 2a and 2b, the Creek, Keays south, Belcher Creek, the Magnum Drone Survey Mission and now the Magnum Mine copper deposit." See Figure 2 below.

Figure 2- Neil Property, Magnum Mine Copper Deposit Location

Mineralization at the Magnum deposit consists of varying proportions of ankerite, quartz, chalcopyrite, and pyrite, in partly replaced remnants of the sedimentary host rock.

To date a total of ten veins have been identified, varying in width from less than 3 feet (0.9 meters) up to 25 feet (7.6 meters), showing continuity on strike and at depth. The main developed veins are nearly vertical. See Photo 1 below.

Photo 1 - Magnum Vein Outcrop

The main haulage, 5200 foot Level adit and the remaining adits into the Magnum Vein were inspected. The blocked entrances of 6 adits and 1 opening (possible a cave-adit) were located and 20 samples of the exposed Magnum Vein were taken over a vertical elevation of 332 meters.

A large (0.4 by 0.4 m.) piece of highly mineralized rubble was discovered on an old road 300 m. south of the main haulage adit. Sample D723266 of this rubble contained 90% chalcopyrite, 3% bornite and Co bloom and assayed an impressive 27.2% Cu. See Table 1 and Photo 2 below.

Photo 2 - Rubble Sample D - 723266

The Magnum Vein was sampled at 3 locations along the northwest facing slope, approximately 400 m. east of Magnum Creek. The northern most exposure was sampled at an elevation of 1903 meters. At this area the vein is 2.00 meters wide and strikes 040 degrees, dipping vertically, in sheared sediments.

A 2.30-meter section containing 2 meters of vein (samples D-723373-375) and 0.30 meters of footwall sediments averaged 6.43% copper. The 2.0 m section of vein alone without the low-grade footwall sediments contained a copper average of 7.380%. See Table 1 and Photo 3 below.

Photo 3 - Channel Sample D - 723374 over 0.70 meters

High-grade grab sample (D-723377) of the vein, collected 1 m. to the north, contained 95% massive chalcopyrite and assayed 25.10% Copper and 11.9 ppm Ag. See Table 1 and Photo 4 below.

Photo 4 - Grab Sample D - 723377

Five hundred to 530 meters along strike to the southwest, between the two 5,900-foot adits 2 exposures were sampled. The 2 exposures strike 040 degrees and dip 85 degrees and are located 30 meters apart at elevations of ~1866 and 1834 meters.

In the north, the vein is 1 to 1.30 meters in width and contains 1-3% chalcopyrite with the hanging wall being comprised of sediments and quartz-carbonate stringers. Five chip samples (D-723382-386) were collected across 3 sections with the average Cu grades across each section are: vein & hanging wall - 0.67% / 2.30 meters, (D-723385 & 386) and 0.34%/ 2.10 meters, (D-723383 & 384) and just vein - 0.31%/ 1.00 m. (D-723382). See Table 1 below and Photo 5 below.

Photo 5 - Composite Samples

Thirty meters farther along strike to southwest, at an elevation of 1,834 meters, 2 sections of the vein and surrounding stringer zones were chip sampled (D-723387 & 389-392). The 1.20- to 1.30-meter-wide vein is exposed along 15 meters, dips sub-vertically and is mineralized with 3-5% chalcopyrite. The northern,1.60-meter-wide section (D-723387 & 389), averages 6.704% Cu, with the 1.30-meter-wide chip sample of the vein containing 8.09% Cu. The southern 2.30-meter-wide section (D-72390-392) averages 2.50% Cu, with the 1.20-meter-wide vein assaying 4.37% Cu. See Table 1 below.

On the road to the main haulage adit a 040-degree striking 0.8 m. wide vein is exposed. This vein contains 2% chalcopyrite and 0.96% Cu. Four heavily mineralized (up to 25% chalcopyrite) samples (D-723371, 372, 379 & 381) of quartz-carbonate rubble / float were sampled downslope from the adits, at elevations of 1755 to 1802 meters. See Table 1 and Photo 6 below.

Photo 6 - Float Sample D - 723379

Samples D-723371, 372 & 381 also contained a high pyrite content of 30 to 80% and assayed 3.4% to 14.4% copper. Sample D-723379 with no pyrite and 20% chalcopyrite contained 11.45% copper. See Table 1 below and Photo 6 above

As discussed in the previous release of the UAV Drone work on the Magnum the data generated was used for in-field targeting of visual copper occurrences on the color orthophoto due to the 3 cm resolution which lead to field examination of the mineralized unit to sampling of the Magnum vein where a total of 20 samples were collect as a first pass evaluation. See Figures 9, 10 below.

Figure 9/ 10 - Blow Up of Copper Mineralization on Magnum Deposit

As you can see above the drone video and orthophoto was used to determine where to sample this sped up the boots on the ground process and also once sampled the data obtained was plotted with GPS coordinates on the orthophoto below. Press link here to view drone flight mission.

Figure 10- 2021 Magnum Sample Locations Plotted On 3-D Tilt Digital, Red Line Vein Trace

In addition to the sample locations the copper assay values were not only plotted on the orthophoto but geotagged with all relevant information and incorporated into a .KMZ format to be used with general global position systems such as google earth. See Figures 11, 12 below.

Figure 11 - Plotted Copper Values % on Magnum Vein.

Figure 12 - Plotted Assay Values / Photos in .kmz Format

Going Forwards

Using the results of the data gathered by the UAV drone in the 2021 field season the field crew will further sample in detail and map the Magnum deposit in addition to traversing the southeast side of the hill side to investigate the silica anomalies. Once drill permits are received this will be one of the drill target areas.

QA QC Procedure

Analytical results of sampling reported by Fabled Copper Corp represent rock samples submitted by Fabled Copper Corp staff directly to ALS Chemex, Vancouver, British Columbia Canada. Samples were crushed, split, and pulverized as per ALS Chemex method PREP-31, then analyzed for ME-ICP61 33 element package by four acid digestion with ICP-AES Finish. ME-GRA21 method for Au and Ag by fire assay and gravimetric finish, 30g nominal sample weight.

Over Limit Methods

For samples triggering precious metal over-limit thresholds of 10 g/t Au or 100 g/t Ag, the following is being used:

Au-GRA21 Au by fire assay and gravimetric finish with 30 g sample.

Ag-GRA21 Ag by fire assay and gravimetric finish.

Fabled Copper Corp. monitors QA/QC using commercially sourced standards and locally sourced blank materials inserted within the sample sequence at regular intervals.

VIDEO — Byron King: Copper Supply Can't Meet Future Demand, Here's How to Position

Byron King: Copper Supply Can't Meet Future Demand, Here's How to Positionyoutu.be

Copper is down from its all-time high earlier this year, but its long-term outlook remains strong.

Speaking to the Investing News Network at the Rule Symposium, Byron King said investors who follow the copper market know that the red metal's supply/demand outlook creates a positive picture.

"If you follow the fundamentals of copper you know that if you forecast it out … there's not enough copper," he said, noting that many large mines focused on the base metal are in "terminal decline," with not nearly enough new discoveries and development projects in the pipeline.

SailingStone Applauds Turquoise Hill Response to Rio Tinto's Offer

Second Open Letter to TRQ Independent Directors Focuses on Unjust Business Dealings by Rio Tinto and Long-Time Concerns of Minority Owners

SailingStone Capital logo

SailingStone Capital Partners, a long-time owner of Turquoise Hill Resources Ltd. (TSX: TRQ) (NYSE: TRQ), has delivered the attached letter to the Turquoise Hill Independent Directors:

Dear Independent Directors of Turquoise Hill Resources Ltd.,

SailingStone Capital Partners applauds the decision of the Turquoise Hill Resources Special Committee to reject Rio Tinto's opportunistic offer to acquire the minorities' stake in TRQ for C$34 /share.

As one of the largest, lowest cost, and longest duration copper/gold assets ever discovered, Oyu Tolgoi is a crown jewel. The proposed acquisition price is nowhere near the intrinsic value of Oyu Tolgoi, as it values the Company at less than 35% of capital invested to date and represents a 60% discount to Rio Tinto's own cost basis in TRQ, a position that Rio acquired over a decade ago when the net present value was far lower and the risks far greater than today. In the next few months, the underground mine will achieve sustainable first production, unlocking billions of dollars in annual free cash flow for decades into the future even before the impact of potential expansions. Tier 1 copper assets with brownfield growth options are increasingly rare and therefore increasingly valuable, particularly given how critical copper is in the race to decarbonize and expand the world's energy systems. Rio Tinto's opportunistic bid did not compensate TRQ minority shareholders adequately for any of these realities.

In addition, we appreciate that "Rio Tinto welcomes the continued investment by Turquoise Hill minority shareholders and their pro rata sharing of future risks and funding obligations." Unfortunately, most of the risks and funding obligations "shared" over the last several years have come as the result of Rio's incompetence, including the incremental equity raise which now must be addressed. However, we welcome Rio's continued participation as mine developer and operator and trust that they have addressed their internal shortcomings so that all Oyu Tolgoi stakeholders can benefit from the mine's incredible employment, business development, and free cash flow potential.

Lastly, we note the following from Rio Tinto's press release.
As previously disclosed, Rio Tinto is not interested in pursuing any alternative transaction, including any such transaction which would result in the sale of Rio Tinto's interest in Turquoise Hill or the acquisition by a third party of Turquoise Hill or Oyu Tolgoi in partnership with or independent of Rio Tinto.

Apparently, Rio Tinto isn't interested in selling their stake in TRQ, even at a price which it claims represents "compelling value" for the seller. More importantly, this statement clearly is intended to preempt any price discovery process which might allow minority owners to be fairly compensated for their 49.2% stake in the Company. While we appreciate that Rio Tinto has certain rights, it cannot and should not preclude potentially interested parties from approaching Turquoise Hill, nor can it preclude the independent directors from considering a combination or transaction from any party which might crystalize the true value of Oyu Tolgoi. In other words, if Rio wants complete control, they can acquire it for a price. The Special Committee has determined that price is meaningfully higher than C$34 /share, and we agree with that conclusion.

Best regards,
