(“District”) (TSX-V: DCOP), of which the Company owns 39.51% of the outstanding common shares.

Elmer B. Stewart, President and CEO of Copper Fox, stated, “Copper Fox is pleased with the progress on the Schaft Creek and Mineral Mountain projects and its investment in District Copper Corp. The multi-disciplinary approach being used to enhance the value of the Schaft Creek project by investigating various sizing and investment scenarios is nearing completion. The receipt of the Multi-Year Based Permit is an important necessity for the Schaft Creek project for future field activities. Mineral Mountain has advanced significantly in 2018 with the identification of two large porphyry copper-molybdenum targets, the largest of which is interpreted to be closer to surface than previously thought. Additional exploration is warranted to advance the project to the drilling stage.”
2018 Q4 Highlights:
- At Schaft Creek, the 2018 program utilized a phased approach to target potential capital, operating and sustaining cost reductions, a higher-grade initial starter pit and identify other infrastructure and access opportunities to improve project economics. The 2018 program is nearing completion.
- The receipt of the Multi-Year Area Based Permit for the Schaft Creek project allows for completion of future field activities and includes approval for up to 50 diamond drill holes, 5 kms of new drill road, and other activities, none of which are planned at this stage.
- The Q4 2018 management committee meeting for the Schaft Creek Joint Venture is scheduled for January 31, 2019 at which time Copper Fox expects be advised of Teck’s 2019 proposed plans for the project.
- The large porphyry copper-molybdenum targets identified at Mineral Mountain strongly suggest the presence of a large porphyry system that provides the Company with the potential of making a significant copper-molybdenum discovery.
- The field program completed by District on their Eaglehead porphyry copper project consisted of re-logging and where necessary, sampling or re-sampling historical drill core. This work cleaned up the legacy issues related to the project’s data base.
- No work was performed on the Van Dyke and Sombrero Butte projects in 2018.
