Copper Fox Metals Inc (TSX-V:CUU, OTCQX:CPFXF) provided an update on the progress of its polymetallic Eaglehead copper project in British Columbia, where fieldwork began in mid-June this year and where boreholes are planned.
The explorer said he was awaiting approval for a so-called Notice of Works (NoW), which will allow drilling to begin. The Company aims to test a 500 meter (m) long interval called the “Gap” between the Bornite and East Zones.
“We are cautiously optimistic that approval for the NoW should be received shortly and drilling operations can begin,” Copper Fox CEO Elmer B. Stewart said in a statement.
“The identification of “quartz eye” porphyry indicates that the porphyry deposit represented by the Bornite and East Zones is more complex than initially modeled and that previously unsampled mineralized intervals suggest that the mineralized envelopes in these zones are more larger than initially modeled.” he added.

Among the work already completed at the property is the field part of the archaeological survey and the 2022 mapping/prospecting program has also been completed.
Two additional tenures located by Copper Fox have also been added to the project.
“Several new copper showings were located during the 2022 mapping/prospecting program. The two new mining tenures were acquired to cover potential infrastructure sites should the project progress to the mining estimation stage. resources, and potentially beyond,” Stewart explained.
A water quality survey is continuing and 16 stream water samples are being taken and sent for analysis. This survey is being completed to establish a baseline water quality database for the project.
Copper Fox is focused on the exploration and development of copper in Canada and the United States. The principal assets of the company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries in Canada and the United States are the 25% interest in the Schaft Creek joint venture with Teck on the Schaft Creek asset in northwestern British Columbia and 100% ownership of the Van Dyke Oxide Copper Project in Miami, Arizona.
