Copper Fox Applauds Advancement of Northwest Power Line

    CALGARY, Sept. 26 /CNW/ - Copper Fox Metals Inc. (CUU-TSX-V, CPFXF-S/P)
applauds Premier Gordon Campbell, and the Province of British Columbia for its
announcement to immediately start the environmental assessment process and
First Nations Consultation on the Northwest Transmission Line (NTL) along
Highway 37.
    "The potential that the power line holds for the region, and projects
under development such as Schaft Creek, is tremendous," said Guillermo Salazar
S., President of Copper Fox. "This transmission line investment, which will
allow Schaft Creek to access the electrical power grid, validates the business
case made by supporters such as Copper Fox and the Mining Association of
British Columbia," said Salazar. "As we move forward in fall 2008 with the
full Feasibility Study, this development will be integral in realizing Schaft
Creek's potential."
    The province will invest the estimated $10 million to immediately restart
the environmental assessment process - the first step towards building the
Northwest Transmission Line. The new 287-Kilovolt line will extend 335 km from
    The development of the NTL has the potential to attract billions of
dollars of investment, create thousands of new jobs, and reduce reliance on
diesel-electric generation.
