Carmax Closes First Tranche of Private Placement

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/29/14 -- Carmax Mining Corp. ("Carmax") (TSX VENTURE: CXM) is pleased to announce that it has closed the first tranche of a private placement of 20,000,000 units to 1001195 B.C. Ltd. ("1001195"), a wholly owned subsidiary of Copper Fox Metals Inc. ("Copper Fox") created specifically for the purpose of holding Copper Fox's interests in Carmax as those interests will evolve in a future relationship established for the purpose of developing Carmax's Eaglehead Property located in the Dease Lake Area of the Province of British Columbia. The second tranche consisting of the non-brokered placement of an additional 4,000,000 units to other unrelated subscribers is expected to close in the first week of June.

Each unit being placed by Carmax will consist of one common share and one common share purchase warrant of Carmax with each common share purchase warrant providing the holder with the right to purchase, for a period of two years following the date of closing, one additional common share of Carmax at a price of $0.075 per share, subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the warrant certificate. The 20,000,000 units issued to Copper Fox's subsidiary in the first tranche closing have been issued subject to a four month hold period expiring September 29, 2014.

Copper Fox's indirect purchase of shares in Carmax and the creation of a new control block of shares under the direction and control of Copper Fox was approved at Carmax's special meeting of shareholders held on May 22, 2014. By virtue of the placement and the anticipated closing of the second tranche of the placement, Copper Fox will own indirectly and exercise direction and control of 38.82% of the issued and outstanding shares of Carmax following the closing of the 4,000,000 units second tranche non-brokered portion of the 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.

The private placement was originally announced as a private placement with Desert Fox Copper Inc. ("Desert Fox"), a separate wholly owned subsidiary of Copper Fox. The subscription agreement assigned by Desert Fox was assigned to 1001195, the new subsidiary of Copper Fox with the consent of Carmax and the Exchange.

Concurrently with the Closing, Elmer B. Stewart, the current President of Copper Fox was appointed a director of Carmax.

Copper Fox is a Canadian resource development company listed on the TSX Venture Exchange (TSX VENTURE: CUU) with offices in Calgary, Alberta and Miami, Arizona. Copper Fox holds a 25% interest in the Schaft Creek Joint Venture with Teck Resources Limited in relation to the Schaft Creek project in northwestern British Columbia. In addition to its 25% interest in the Schaft Creek Joint Venture, Copper Fox holds, through Desert Fox and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, the Sombrero Butte copper project in the Bunker Hill Mining District, Arizona and the Van Dyke oxide copper project in the Globe-Miami Mining District, Arizona. Desert Fox opened an operations office in Miami, Arizona to advance the work required on the Van Dyke copper project to a Preliminary Economic Assessment.

The proposed private placement announced by Carmax on April 10, 2014, previously received conditional TSX Venture Exchange approval subject to, among other things, Carmax shareholder approval for the transaction, which has now been obtained.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing.
