Elmer B. Stewart, President and CEO of Copper Fox, stated, “During the Quarter, Copper Fox was active on the Schaft Creek and Mineral Mountain projects and provided technical services to Carmax related to its Eaglehead porphyry copper project. At Schaft Creek, work continues on evaluating a number of scenarios to identify value enhancing opportunities for the project. At Mineral Mountain, a geological model and a potential drill target has been developed that significantly enhances the geological understanding and mineral potential of the project.”
2018 Q2 Highlights
- At Schaft Creek the desktop study is ongoing, investigating a number of scenarios using a multi-phased approach to identify value opportunities to enhance the overall value of the Schaft Creek project.
- If upon completion of the 2018 desktop study the Schaft Creek Joint Venture (“SCJV”) concludes that there is the potential to materially change project economics, the SCJV will assess the timing and scope of further studies including a NI 43-101 Technical Report if warranted.
- The Multi-Year Area Based Permit (“MYAB”) for the Schaft Creek project has been submitted and reviewed by the Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources. The main activities, pursuant to the MYAB, include approval to complete up to 50 diamond drill holes, construct 5 kms of new drill road, and complete 20 kms of line cutting; none of which are contemplated at this time.
- At Mineral Mountain, sampling of the historical trenches has identified a number of previously unknown mineralized intervals that contain in excess of 0.1% copper and 0.01% molybdenum.
- The copper mineralogy and geochemical data from the trench sampling at Mineral Mountain has identified a Leach Cap; a weathering feature typical of porphyry copper deposits in Arizona.
- Copper Fox continued to provide technical support to Carmax for the preparation of a potential 2018 exploration program on its 100% owned Eaglehead porphyry copper project.
