Fabled Copper Corp. ("Fabled Copper" or the "Company") (CSE:FABL)(FSE:XZ7) announces the results of 2022 surface field work on it's Muskwa Copper Project. See Figure 1 below
Figure 1 - General Property Location
The Project is comprised of the Neil Property, the Toro Property and the Bronson Property all located in northern British Columbia. See Figure 2 below.
Figure 2 - Location Map
Peter Hawley, President, CEO reports; "A total of 59 specific areas were mapped and prospected during the 2022 field season. The Brad vein was visited by a 3-person field team consisting of 2 geologist and 1 geo technician on July 2, 2022 where it was sampled vertically over 255 meters from the valley floor at 1,160 meters to 1,415 meters. A total of 5 samples were collected, 3 floats and 2 grab samples. Of the 5 samples collected, 4 assayed greater than 0.5% copper. See Figure 3 below.
Figure 2- Toro Property, Brad Vein Location
Float sample D-723645 was collected at the valley floor returned and 0.65% copper whereas float sample D-723646 ,taken 8 meters vertically above, assayed 4.98% copper, 1.08 g/t gold and .61 g/t silver. Note the gold content as this is rarely seen on the property. See Table 1 and Photo 1 below.

A further 19 meters vertically above float sample D-723647 consisted of quartz with minor malachite copper alteration with 20% chalcopyrite as massive patches, disseminated and as fracture filling. This assayed an impressive 13.85% copper with 0.15 g/t Au and 7.42 g/t silver. See Table 1 and Photo 2 below

A further 182 meters vertically grab sample D-723648 reported 0.74% copper with 0.02 g/t gold and 0.80 g/t silver. This sample consisted of white quartz with minor malachite copper alteration and some gray siltstone fragments and contained 1-2% chalcopyrite as patches. See Table 1 and Photo 3 below.

Final grab sample D-7223649 was taken at the highest point sampled at 1,415 meters vertically and reported only trace copper, gold silver.
Table 1 - Brad Vein Sample Results
On August 5th the same team explored the creek valley north of the Brad Vein occurrence and a total of 8 float samples were taken over a vertical elevation of 31 meters with one sample reporting an impressive 16.05 % copper with 0.84 g/t gold and 5.29 g/t silver. Note the gold and silver showing up again. Of the 8 samples taken5 reported greater that 0.5% copper.
At an altitude of 1,142 meters float sample D-723794 of float assayed 0.14 % copper and 0.43 g/t silver, see table 2 below.
Whereas, as you can see, 2 meters below sample # D-723795 of quartz with minor carbonate patches and shale / silt fragments with moderate malachite alteration and 2-3% chalcopyrite as blebs and disseminations returned 0.24% copper and 0.13 g/t silver. See Table 2 and Photo 4 below
A further 3 meters vertically below that last sampled, float sample D-723796 consisted of a massive quartz carbonate vein with 2-5% disseminated chalcopyrite and returned 0.55% copper with 0.68 g/t silver.
Yet another 3 meters vertically below a large out cropping of vein, float sample D-723797was sampled and assayed 0.94% copper with 0.42 g/.t silver. See Table 2 and Photo 5 below.
Two meters vertically below, float sample D-723799 composed of massive buff white quartz carbonate veining with moderate malachite copper alteration and 3-8% disseminated chalcopyrite reported 5.07% copper with 0.19 g/t gold and 2.27 g/t silver. Again, gold and silver reporting with the copper. See Table 2 and Photo 6 below.
An additional 11 meters vertically below, float sample # D-723800 of similar veining returned 5.51% copper, 0.62 g/t gold and 1.14 g./t silver. Again, with elevated gold and silver values along with the copper. See Table 2 and Photo 7 below.
Float sample D-723801, 17 meters vertically down slope of similar veining reported 0.47% copper with trace gold and 0.16 g/t silver.
At the floor of the valley following the creek north of the Brad Veining a large quartz vein was encountered behind a waterfall. Float sample D-723802 taken at an elevation of 1,111 meters and consisted of green - green grayish quartz with mottled brassy yellow with green spots on the chalcopyrite on a broken fresh surface. Up to 35% chalcopyrite as massive patches and blebs with 2% bornite with the chalcopyrite. This sample retuned an impressive 16.05 % Copper with 0.84 g/t gold and 5.29 g/t silver. See Table 2 and Photo 8 below.
Table 2 - Creek North of Brad Vein Assay Results
All sample locations were taken with GPS along with GPS enabled field cameras of photos of the sampled units. The photos, sample locations and all assay data pertaining to the assay taken, (36 elements were assayed) were tagged in a geo tag format for plotting in .kml / .kmz GIS systems such as Google Earth.
The reporting of the 2022 field season works are just being compiled as assay results become available. Already the team not only found new extensions of the Brad Veining but gold-silver domain associated with the copper mineralized found in this area. This certainly appears worth while to follow up on.
An additional releases on the 2022 exploration program of the Muskwa area will be forth coming in the following weeks.
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.
