About Copper Fox
Copper Fox is a Canadian based resource development company listed on the 
TSX-Venture Exchange (CUU-TSX-V) with a corporate office in Calgary and an 
operations office in Vancouver. 
The Company announced the results of a Feasibility Study on the Schaft Creek 
Mineral Deposit, on December 21, 2012. Schaft Creek is one of the largest 
undeveloped copper, gold, molybdenum and silver deposits in North America. 
The Feasibility Study was completed by Tetra Tech Wardrop at a nominal 130,000 
tpd open pit mine. 
Copper Fox holds title and a 100% working interest in the Schaft Creek project 
consisting of 56,267.54 hectares (139,040 acres). Included in this total are 
the "Schedule A" mineral tenures originally conveyed to Copper Fox pursuant to 
the Teck Option Agreement, which consist of 8,334.34 hectares (20,594 
acres). The "Schedule A" mineral tenures are subject to a 3.5% Net Profits 
Interest held by Royal Gold, Inc., a 30% carried Net Proceeds Interest held by 
Liard and, together with the additional mineral tenures obtained by Copper Fox 
within the "Area of Interest" provided for in the Teck Option Agreement, an 
earn back option held by Teck. On completion of a "Positive Bankable 
Feasibility Study" (as defined), Copper Fox earns Teck's 78% interest in 
Liard. Teck's earn back option to acquire either, 20%, 40% or 75%, of Copper 
Fox's interest in the Schaft Creek Project is triggered upon delivery of a 
"Positive Bankable Feasibility Study" (as defined) to Teck after which they 
have 120 days to make a decision. Should Teck elect to exercise its option 
for 75%, Teck is required to fund subsequent property "Expenditures" (as 
defined) up to a total of 400% of those incurred by Copper Fox ($85.3 million 
to December 31, 2012) and use its best efforts to arrange for project 
financing, including the Copper Fox portion. For full details of the Teck 
earn back option please refer to the Company's website 
The remainder of Copper Fox's registered interests in mineral tenures in 
British Columbia total 47,933.19 hectares (118,445 acres). These interests 
have been acquired by Copper Fox through mineral tenure acquisitions and 
mineral tenure purchase agreements subsequent to Copper Fox entering into the 
Teck Option Agreement. Certain portions of these registered mineral tenures 
are subject to inclusion within the Schaft Creek Project pursuant to the terms 
of the "Area of Interest" provisions of the Teck Option Agreement. 
Additionally the Company holds, through its wholly-owned subsidiaries, mineral 
tenures located in Pinal County, Arizona (the 'Sombrero Butte Copper Project') 
and in Miami, Arizona (the 'Van Dyke BLM Claims'). The Sombrero Butte copper 
project consists of 2,887 acres located in the Bunker Hill Mining District, 44 
miles northeast of Tucson and the 35 Van Dyke BLM Claims located to the west 
of the Van Dyke copper deposit in Miami.
