Copper Fox announces its request for a trading halt

    CALGARY, June 11 /CNW/ - Copper Fox Metals Inc. ("Copper Fox" or the
"Company") (TSX-V - CUU) announces that, as a result of information provided
to the Company on June 7, 2007 by its independent Qualified Person, Keith
McCandlish, Vice President and General Manager of Associated Geosciences Ltd.
(AGL), the Copper Equivalent Values provided to Copper Fox by AGL and reported
by Copper Fox in its News Release of May 9, 2007 may be materially
understated. As a result, the classification of the resources is understated.
    An error in the formula used by AGL to calculate the copper equivalent
has been identified. The Company is advised by AGL that the correction to the
copper equivalent calculation will not affect the grades of individual
resource blocks, tonnes or contained metal of the Schaft Creek deposit.
    The resource estimate announced on May 9, 2007 is being reviewed by the
Company in detail with its consultants, in conjunction with its review of the
copper equivalent values, and the Company will issue a further news release to
announce the results of this review. The Company requested the TSX-venture
exchange halt trading of the stock until such time as recalculation of the
copper equivalent values has been completed.
