2022 Q2 Highlights
- At Eaglehead a large chargeability anomaly was identified, and a land exchange was completed.
- High resolution airborne magnetic and radiometric surveys were announced for both the Mineral Mountain and Sombrero Butte projects.
- Analytical results for the four-hole 2021 metallurgical drilling program from the Schaft Creek project were announced.
- The 2022 Schaft Creek summer program was announced contemplating a $6.6M budget which includes a 5,000m drilling program.
- Proactive Investors were retained to provide the Company media and research services.
- Ausenco was retained to provide process and hydrogeological services for the Van Dyke project, the 2022 budget will be finalized once all contractor estimates have been received.
- The first instalment on the promissory note ($340,000), pursuant to the Eaglehead property acquisition agreement, was made on April 19, 2022.
During the next quarter, activities will focus on the drilling and metallurgical programs for the Schaft Creek and Eaglehead projects and ground verification of the results of the airborne surveys on the Mineral Mountain and Sombrero Butte projects. At Van Dyke, barring any unforeseen additional delays, receipt of the recommendations and estimated activity costs from the hydrogeological/process/resource contractors is expected during the quarter. The initial focus of the 2022 Van Dyke program would be completion of archaeological/fauna/flora studies to establish a baseline for the project prior to commencing physical activities. Mobilization for the 2022 field programs at Schaft Creek and Eaglehead typically commence in early June, these could be delayed due to heavy snow conditions, resulting from a late spring thaw.
Elmer B. Stewart, President and CEO of Copper Fox stated, “Our focus in 2022 is to position the Company to take advantage of the anticipated need for specialty metals; specifically copper to advance the “green economy” through a combination of investigating project enhancements at Schaft Creek and Van Dyke, drilling to advance the Eaglehead project to a resource estimate stage and selection of future drill targets at Mineral Mountain and Sombrero Butte. At Eaglehead, positive results from the drilling program potentially could lead to a resource estimation toward the end of 2022 or early 2023 and provide samples for additional metallurgical testwork to better define metallurgical variability and metal recoveries for the mineralization. During the Quarter, Copper Fox expects to announce its 2022 program for the Van Dyke project.”
Subsequent to the Period End
- Moose Mountain Technical Services were retained to review all data for the Eaglehead project including the proposed 2022 drilling program. Logistics for the 2022 program progressed and the drilling and archaeological contracts were executed. Age dating of the granodiorite and quartz diorite phases of the Eaglehead intrusive is comparable to other calc-alkalic porphyry copper systems in BC with the molybdenite indicating formation of the porphyry mineralization being approximately 700,000 years after emplacement of the Eaglehead intrusive.
- Results of the high-resolution airborne magnetic and radiometric survey on the Mineral Mountain project were announced. The survey identified several interpreted late-stage felsic stocks, but only three stocks located along the eastern/northern Laramide/Precambrian contact show a strong spatial correlation to the copper-molybdenum mineralization, chargeability anomaly and a well-defined, strong Th/K anomaly.
