Calgary, Alberta--(Newsfile Corp. - April 22, 2024) - Copper Fox Metals Inc. (TSXV: CUU) (OTCQX: CPFXF( (FSE: HPU) ("Copper Fox" or the "Company"), through its wholly owned subsidiary Northern Fox Copper Inc. ("Northern Fox"), is pleased to announce that on April 19, 2024 the final installment payment of CAD$330,000 to District Copper Corp. ("District Copper") was completed. The terms and conditions of the purchase of the Eaglehead porphyry copper project located in northwestern British Columbia ("BC") were set out in a news release dated February 10, 2020.

The aggregate consideration paid by Northern Fox for the Eaglehead property ("Eaglehead Property") was CAD$1.412 million, of which $1.2 million was paid to District Copper and $212,000 was paid to the BC Ministry of Energy, Mines and Low Carbon Innovation to assume the reclamation bond for the Eaglehead Property.

Elmer B. Stewart, President and CEO of Copper Fox stated, "Making the final payment on the acquisition of the Eaglehead Property is another milestone the Company has achieved after filing a mineral resource estimate ("MRE") on SEDAR+ titled "NI 43-101 Mineral Resource Estimate of the Eaglehead Project" with an effective date of August 21, 2023, prepared by Sue Bird, P.Eng., of Moose Mountain Technical Services. The MRE reported an indicated mineral resource of 0.5 billion pounds ("Blb") copper equivalent ("CuEq") and an inferred mineral resource of 1.3 Blb CuEq (see news release dated August 30, 2023 for details). We are excited to continue working on this advanced-stage porphyry copper exploration project located within the prolific Liard Mining District in BC. The 2024 work program is currently under review as the Company recently received confirmation that the project's BC exploration permit was extended to March 31, 2026. The exploration permit contemplates a 2,500-meter drill program to test the 'gap' between the Bornite and East zones, positive results from this program could potentially increase the size of the resource."
