Calgary, Alberta--(Newsfile Corp. - September 19, 2019) - Copper Fox Metals Inc. (TSXV: CUU) (OTC Pink: CPFXF) ("Copper Fox" or the "Company") and its wholly owned subsidiary, Desert Fox Copper Inc. ("Desert Fox") are pleased to provide shareholders analytical results for the last four drill holes and a brief summary of the 2019 analytical program from the Van Dyke In-Situ Leach ("ISL") oxide copper project. The 2019 analytical program was completed to support an updated resource estimate for the Van Dyke deposit.
- DDH-OXY-48 returned an average of 0.278% acid soluble copper ("ASCu") over a 117.05m core interval including a 9.44m core interval grading 1.074% ASCu.
- DDH-OXY-45A returned an average of 0.318% ASCu over a 71.02 m core interval including a 5.33m core interval grading 1.185% ASCu.
- The four drill holes reported in this news release confirm the presence of significant ASCu concentrations over substantial mineralized intervals between the Van Dyke shaft and DDH-VD14-01 (drilled in 2014).
- The 2019 program has extended the mineralization in the Van Dyke deposit to approximately 1,500m in an east-west direction and up to approximately 900m in a north-south direction.
Elmer B. Stewart, President and CEO of Copper Fox, stated, "The 2019 analytical program included 3,252 pulp and core samples and has defined the limits of the mineralized intervals in 37 historical drill holes from the Van Dyke deposit. The program consistently returned significantly higher concentrations of acid soluble copper; has defined the limits of the chalcocite blanket and extended (in most cases) the thickness of the mineralized intervals compared to historical data. The results of the program indicate that the mineralization is open to the west and southwest which suggests the potential to increase the size and total copper content of the Van Dyke deposit."
The weighted average ASCu concentrations using a 0.05% ASCu cutoff for the four drill holes reported in this news release are shown below. Because the historical analytical data for these drill holes is not available, a comparison of the weighted average grades for the historical and 2019 analytical results is not possible.
