Schaft Creek Project:
The Resource Estimate to support the PEA for the Schaft Creek project is being prepared by Tetra Tech Canada Inc. and Red Pennant Geoscience. Results are expected to be announced by the end of March, with the NI 43-101 Technical Report being filed on SEDAR within 45 days of the announcement.
The Mines Act permit, authorizing mineral exploration activities at the Eaglehead Property, has been received and allows Copper Fox to complete the 100% acquisition of the Eaglehead project. The 2021 exploration program consists of approximately 25-line kms of deep penetrating geophysical surveying and mapping to determine the extent of the copper-gold-molybdenum-silver mineralization in the Early Jurassic Eaglehead stock.
Mineral Mountain Project:
The BLM’s decision to rescind the necessity of an EA at Mineral Mountain allows the Company to proceed with the previously announced deep penetrating geophysical (chargeability and resistivity) survey. The survey is reconnaissance in nature and will cover both porphyry targets within the property and focusses primarily on the large area of copper-molybdenum mineralization hosted in the Laramide age multi-phase intrusive stock.
