Elmer B. Stewart, President and CEO of Copper Fox, stated, “Activities during and subsequent to the year ended included analytical results of the 2022 metallurgical drilling program at Schaft Creek which extended and increased continuity of the near-surface higher-grade mineralized zones reported in 2021. These results allow for the metallurgical testwork, one of the main project enhancements identified in the 2021 Preliminary Economic Assessment, to commence. Following the positive results from the biological evaluation (BE) of the Van Dyke project, field operations to determine the possibility of re-habilitating selected drill holes is underway. The positive exploration results from the Sombrero Butte and Mineral Mountain porphyry copper projects continued to upgrade and support the porphyry potential on both projects. At Eaglehead, despite the delay of the planned 2022 drill program, the field operations resulted in expanding the limits of the porphyry style mineralization and provided the information to allow the 3D modelling of the four open-ended porphyry deposits located within the project area to begin.”
