Copper Fox Announces First Quarter Results

CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/12/14 -- Copper Fox Metals Inc. ('Copper Fox' or the 'Company') (TSX VENTURE: CUU) is pleased to announce its first quarter operating and financial results. Copper Fox had a net loss for the quarter of $182,095 ($0.00 income per share). The Company also incurred $769,718 in expenditures toward furthering the development of its Van Dyke copper project in Arizona. Copies of the financial statements, notes and related management discussion and analysis may be obtained on SEDAR at www.sedar.com, the Company web site at www.copperfoxmetals.com or by contacting the Company directly. All amounts are in Canadian dollars unless otherwise stated.

Highlights:

Schaft Creek Project

During the quarter, the results for the 2013 program were released. Although the 2013 field program completed fewer metres than planned, the objectives of the 2013 program were essentially achieved. The objectives of this program were to determine if the mineralization in the Paramount zone continues to the east under Mount LaCasse and to collect additional data for pit slope stability studies. The diamond drilling program demonstrated that the mineralization in the Paramount zone extends at least 300m east of the 2012 resource block model and also marginally to the west. Results of the pit slope studies were also positive.

The 2014 plans for the Schaft Creek project are currently under review and should be finalized by the end of March 2014, well in advance of the time to complete a field program. Preliminary indications are that the Operator of the Schaft Creek Joint Venture plan to recommend a program of optimization studies as well as a field program to update the geological model and better define certain parameters of the Schaft Creek deposit.

Van Dyke Copper Project

During the quarter, the Company initiated a program to verify the historical results from the Van Dyke oxide copper deposit that consists of a 5,000m (approximately nine holes) diamond drilling program to twin seven historical drill holes, as well as submitting pulps from original drill core samples and splitting the mineralized core interval for certain historical drill holes. Results of the analytical work is expected shortly.

The proposed verification drilling program covers an 800m wide by 500m long section through the deposit. Applications for the various permits required to conduct a diamond drilling program has commenced and selection of a diamond drill contractor is complete. The drilling is expected to start in March 2014.

Sombrero Butte Copper Project

Desert Fox's objective on the Sombrero Butte project is to assess its potential to host a large porphyry copper-molybdenum deposit. The results of the 2013 program were positive and identified the alteration pattern and veinlet and disseminated copper-molybdenum mineralization characteristic of a porphyry copper system. Currently, Desert Fox is collecting all the data from the historical exploration conducted over this area since the mid 1960's. Contingent on completion and review of this work, Desert Fox plans to complete a deep penetrating geophysical survey (Induced Polarization) to identify chargeability/resistivity anomalies indicative of porphyry copper systems. The Company has received the permit from the State of Arizona to conduct the Titan-24 Survey.

About Copper Fox

Copper Fox is a Canadian resource development company listed on the TSX-Venture Exchange (TSX VENTURE: CUU) with offices in Calgary, Alberta and through its wholly owned subsidiary Desert Fox, an office in Miami, Arizona.

Copper Fox holds a 25% interest in the Schaft Creek Joint Venture with Teck Resources Limited ('Teck') on the Schaft Creek project in northwestern British Columbia. On January 23, 2013, a National Instrument 43-101 technical report (feasibility study) was completed on the Schaft Creek copper-gold-molybdenum-silver project that recommended a 130,000 tonne per day open pit mine with proven and probable reserves of 940.8 million tonnes grading 0.27% copper, 0.19 g/t gold, 0.018% molybdenum and 1.72 g/t silver with a 21 year mine life. The proven and probable reserves are estimated to contain 5.6 billion pounds of copper, 5.8 million ounces of gold, 363.5 million pounds of molybdenum and 51.7 million ounces of silver.

In addition to its interest in the Schaft Creek Joint Venture, Copper Fox holds, through Desert Fox Copper Inc. ('Desert Fox') and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, the Sombrero Butte copper project located in the Bunker Hill District, Pinal County, Arizona and the Van Dyke copper project located in the Globe-Miami District, Gila County, Arizona immediately adjacent to the mining operations of BHP Billiton and Freeport McMoRan copper mining operations. The Van Dyke oxide copper deposit is reported to host a Historical Estimate of 112 million tonnes grading 0.52% copper (approximately 1.2 billion pounds of copper at a 0.2% copper cut-off). The historical data strongly suggests that the Van Dyke oxide copper deposit could be exploited using in-situ leaching, a production method widely used in the mining industry and currently being advanced and used on other copper projects in Arizona. The Sombrero Butte copper project is located 9 miles east of the San Manuel Mine (14 billion pounds of copper), and 2 miles south of Redhawk Resources' Copper Creek project (7 billion pounds of copper).

For further information on these mining projects please refer to the Company's web site at www.copperfoxmetals.com.
