    About Copper Fox

    Copper Fox is a Canadian based Junior Mining Company listed on the
Toronto Stock Exchange-Venture (CUU). The Company has concentrated its project
activities exclusively to the mineral property at Schaft Creek. The Schaft
Creek mineral deposit is one of the largest undeveloped copper, gold,
molybdenum and silver deposits in Canada. Based on a NI 43-101 compliant
resource estimate prepared June 22, 2007 by Associated Geosciences Ltd, the
Measured and Indicated resource at Schaft Creek is 1.393 billion tonnes
averaging 0.25% copper (7.7 billion pounds), 0.18 gpt gold (8.1 million
ounces), 0.019% molybdenum (584 million pounds) and 1.55 gpt silver (69.4
million ounces) at a 0.20% copper equivalent ("CuEq") cutoff. The company is
evaluating the feasibility of developing an open pit mine with a capacity of
up to 65,000 tonnes per day with a mine life of 35 years. Should the
availability of power for this area increase, the project team believes, based
on metallurgy and drilling results, a 100,000 tonne per day open pit mining
operation could be considered. Copper Fox holds the property pursuant to an
option agreement with Teck Cominco Limited whereby Copper Fox may acquire up
to a 93.4% direct and indirect interest in the property. Title to the property
is in good standing before the BC Government until 2015.
    Schaft Creek is located in north western British Columbia, Canada, which
is considered to have a stable socio-political environment. This area is often
referred to as the "Gold / Copper Belt" and includes deposits such as Galore
Creek, and Red Chris. Copper Fox is in the Environmental Assessment Process
required by the British Columbia and Canadian Governments for project
permitting and is in continuous consultation with the Tahltan Nation. To date
the Company has completed approximately 6,000 meters of its 2007 season
drilling program designed in part to provide geotechnical data to prepare the
mine plan and also to explore additional areas of interest.

without limitation: anticipated timing and content of upcoming work programs,
geological interpretations, and potential mineral recovery processes;
anticipated dates for receipt of permits, approvals and other milestones;
anticipated results of drilling programs, scoping and feasibility studies and
other analyses; future production, operating and capital costs; and operating
or financial performance. Information concerning mineral reserve and resource
estimates also may be deemed to be forward-looking information in that it
reflects a prediction of the mineralization that would be encountered if a
mineral deposit were developed and mined. For any forward looking information
given, management has assumed that the assay results it has received are
reliable, and has applied geological interpretation methodologies which are
consistent with industry standards. Forward-looking information involves
various risks and uncertainties. There can be no assurance that such
information will prove to be accurate, and actual results and future events
could differ materially from those anticipated in such information. Important
factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from management's
expectations include: fluctuations in commodity prices and currency exchange
rates; uncertainties relating to interpretation of drill results and the
geology, continuity and grade of mineral deposits; uncertainty of estimates of
capital and operating costs, recovery rates, production estimates and
estimated economic return; the need for co-operation of government agencies in
the exploration and development of properties and the issuance of required
permits; the need to obtain additional financing to develop properties and
uncertainty as to the availability and terms of future financing; the
possibility of delay in exploration or development programs or in construction
projects and uncertainty of meeting anticipated program milestones;
uncertainty as to timely availability of permits and other governmental
approvals; and other risks and uncertainties disclosed in the Company's other
