Copper Fox Closes Carmax Investment

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/29/14 -- Copper Fox Metals Inc. ("Copper Fox" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: CUU) is pleased to announce that it has, through a wholly owned subsidiary, closed a previously announced non-brokered private placement (the "Private Placement") in Carmax Mining Corp. ("Carmax") (TSX VENTURE: CXM) pursuant to which Copper Fox has indirectly acquired 20,000,000 units of Carmax for an aggregate subscription price of $1 million. Units (each a "Unit") were subscribed for at a price of $0.05 per Unit and consisted of one previously unissued common share ("Share") and one common share purchase warrant ("Warrant") of Carmax. Each Warrant is exercisable for a period of 24 months from the closing date of the Private Placement and entitles the holder, on exercise, to purchase one additional common share of Carmax at a price of $0.075 per share.

Carmax is in the process of completing a further private placement for an aggregate of 4,000,000 Units with investors other than Copper Fox (the "Second Placement") which is expected to close in the first week of June.

Prior to the completion of the Private Placement, Copper Fox and its subsidiaries held no common shares or other securities of Carmax. After giving effect to the acquisition of the Units, Copper Fox beneficially owns and controls 20,000,000 Shares of Carmax, representing approximately 42% of the issued and outstanding common shares of Carmax on an undiluted basis as at the date hereof (based on a total of 47,515,997 common shares of Carmax issued and outstanding with no effect being given to the Second Placement). Copper Fox also holds Warrants issued pursuant to the Private Placement which entitle Copper Fox to indirectly acquire an additional 20,000,000 common shares of Carmax, which together with the above noted Shares represent approximately 59% of the issued and outstanding common shares of Carmax, calculated on a partially-diluted basis assuming the exercise of all Warrants issued pursuant to the Private Placement held by Copper Fox, but with no effect being given to the Second Placement.

Copper Fox, through its aforementioned wholly owned subsidiary, entered into a subscription agreement (the "Subscription Agreement") with Carmax to acquire the Units, and such Subscription Agreement contained representations, warranties and covenants of the respective parties that are standard and customary in agreements of this nature, including representations that allow reliance on applicable Canadian private placement prospectus exemptions. Moreover, pursuant to the Subscription Agreement Carmax granted Copper Fox certain rights, including, but not limited to:

--  the right to nominate two members to the Board of Carmax at each annual
    meeting of Carmax's shareholders;

--  the pre-emptive right to participate in any equity financing of Carmax,
    so as to maintain its pro rata percentage shareholding in Carmax; and

--  the right to make top-up investments in Carmax, by way of future private
    placements, so as to maintain its pro rata percentage shareholding in
    Carmax.

The aforementioned rights are, however, subject to Copper Fox and its affiliates maintaining ownership of 20% of Carmax's issued and outstanding common shares.

Pursuant to the Subscription Agreement, Carmax has agreed to use the proceeds of the Private Placement to carry out a field program on its Eaglehead property this summer. Please refer to our previous new release dated April 10, 2014 for more information on the Eaglehead property.

Copper Fox acquired the Units for investment purposes. Depending on economic and financial conditions, Copper Fox may acquire further common shares of Carmax (through market or private transactions) from time to time for investment purposes.

Upon the closing of the Private Placement, Elmer Stewart was appointed to the Board of Caramx.

Elmer B. Stewart, President and CEO of Copper Fox stated, "We are looking forward to working with Carmax to advance the exploration and develop the potential of the Eaglehead property. This investment provides Copper Fox significant exposure to a large, advanced copper-molybdenum-gold-silver property in northern British Columbia. This investment follows our strategy to locate, explore and add value through the exploration and development of large copper deposits located in North America."
