Copper Fox has assembled a balanced portfolio of two advanced stage and three exploration stage copper projects in Tier 1 mining districts in Canada and the United States.  The Company has been successful in creating value by increasing certainty of its development stage projects, increasing it’s resource base and advancing its exploration stage projects to establish sustainability to its business model.

Advanced Stage Projects

Schaft Creek - British Columbia, Canada

  • The Schaft Creek project is managed through the Schaft Creek Joint Venture (‘SCJV’), Copper Fox holds 25% interest while Teck Resources Limited is the Operator and holds 75% interest.
  • Schaft Creek comprises 56,180 hectares and is one of the largest undeveloped porphyry copper-gold-molybdenum-silver deposits in North America, located in an area of northwestern British Columbia referred to as the “Golden Triangle”.
  • The mineralization contains significant quantities of copper, gold, molybdenum and silver.  The tonnes and average metal grades are included in the 2020 Mineral Resource Estimate Update (click here for Resources).
  • The 2021 Preliminary Economic Assessment significantly increased the valuation over the 2013 Feasibility Study, reporting an after-tax NPV 8% of US$842 M, an IRR of 12.9%, producing 5.0 Blbs of copper, 3.7 Moz of gold, 226.0 Mlbs of molybdenum and 16.4 Moz of silver over a 21 year mine life (click here for PEA).  
  • The 2024 program is budgeted at CA$18.7 M and has the objective of advancing the key project parameters to transition the project from Scoping to Prefeasibility Study stage.

Van Dyke - Arizona, USA

  • Copper Fox owns a 100% working interest in the Van Dyke copper project, consisting of 531.5 hectares of mineral rights located in the Globe-Miami Mining District, approximately 145 kilometers (‘km’) east of Phoenix, Arizona.
  • Van Dyke is an in-situ copper recovery (‘ISCR’) project that utilizes in-situ leaching to recover soluble copper.  The ISCR process is currently being tested at several other copper projects in Arizona.
  • The 2020 Updated Resource Estimate established for the first time an Indicated mineral resource (click here for Resources).
  • The 2020 Preliminary Economic Assessment reported an after-tax NPV 7.5% of US$645 M, an IRR of 43.4%, producing 1.1 Blbs of copper over a 17 year mine life (click here for PEA).
  • Hydrogeologic and solubility studies recently completed with a geotechnical study underway as the project advances to the Prefeasibility Study stage.

Exploration Stage Projects

Copper Fox owns a 100% interest in three prospective exploration stage porphyry copper projects. Eaglehead is an advanced-stage exploration project and reached a milestone in 2023 with completion of a resource estimate which, for the first time, reported an Indicated mineral resource.  Eaglehead is located in the Liard Mining Division in northwestern British Columbia. The Sombrero Butte and Mineral Mountain projects represent early-stage exploration projects situated in the highly prospective Laramide age copper belt of Arizona.  These projects are located in established mining districts that host numerous past and currently producing large copper deposits.

Eaglehead - British Columbia, Canada

  • Eaglehead porphyry copper project covers 15,713 hectares (157.1 km2) of the Lower Jurassic age Eaglehead Pluton located in the Liard Mining District, 50 km east of Dease Lake, British Columbia.
  • The porphyry copper-gold-molybdenum-silver mineralization is located within an 8 km long by 3 km wide mineralized corridor that hosts four open-ended porphyry copper deposits and two areas of porphyry style mineralization.
  • The 2023 mineral resource estimate established for the first time an Indicated mineral resource category as well as a large Inferred mineral resource (click here for Resources).
  • A total of 63 occurrences of porphyry copper-gold-molybdenum-silver mineralization have been located in outcrop over an area measuring approximately 2 km by 1.5 km north of the Pass and Camp zones.
  • 36,606 m of diamond drilling - 120 mineralized drillholes out of 126 diamond drillholes.
  • 2021 Induced Polarization survey outlined an open-ended 2.5 km by 1.2 km positive chargeability anomaly north of the Pass-Camp zones that correlate with widespread copper mineralization on surface and a strong Cu-Mo in-soil geochemical anomaly.

Sombrero Butte - Arizona, USA

  • Sombrero Butte porphyry copper project, comprised of 1,179 hectares, is located in the Bunker Hill Mining District east of Mammoth, Arizona and approximately 3 km south of the Copper Creek porphyry copper deposit.
  • The property contains multiple clusters of mineralized breccia pipes which are interpreted to be associated with one or more porphyry systems at depth.
  • Historical copper production occurred from 1903-1920 at the Magma Chief Mine with ‘low-grade’ ore assaying 3-5% and ‘higher-grade’ ore along open cuts and tunnels assaying 20-33%.
  • Historical drilling of the mineralized breccia pipes yielded the following results:
    • Magma SB-02:        76m of 0.61% Cu
    • Audacious SB-14:  62m of 1.43% Cu
    • Magma SB-23:        62m averaging 1.06% Cu, 0.022% Mo, 0.07 g/t Au and 3.17 g/t Ag
  • Two large chargeability anomalies exhibit a spatial association with the mineralized breccia pipes, alteration, and Cu-Mo vein hosted mineralization.
  • The 2022 combined airborne high sensitivity magnetic/radiometric survey indicated the chargeability anomalies are located in the footwall of a regional scale N30W trending fault system. 
  • SWIR anomalies exhibit a strong correlation to known breccias and has identified numerous other anomalous signatures interpreted to represent breccia pipes.

Mineral Mountain - Arizona, USA

  • Mineral Mountain porphyry copper project is located in the Mineral Mountain Mining District east of Florence, Arizona.
  • The project is located on a 100 km long, prolific ENE structural trend that hosts the Casa Grande, Florence, Resolution and Globe-Miami porphyry copper deposits.
  • The main target is a 4.5 km long by up to 2.0 km wide zone of Cu-Mo mineralization containing over 600 copper showings and the alteration and geophysical signature of a buried porphyry copper system.
  • The 2022 combined airborne high sensitivity magnetic/radiometric survey identified several cylinder-shaped bodies located within the coincident chargeability anomaly.
  • Strong 3,200 m x 1,200 m chargeability/resistivity signature underlying porphyry footprint identified in 2023.
  • 80 BLM claims and one mineral exploration permit were added to the project in 2023.
