Forward-looking information in this news release include statements about the diamond drilling, collection of geometallurgical samples and ongoing optimization studies of the Schaft Creek project; the main concepts for the Preliminary Economic Assessment ("PEA") on the Van Dyke project; the optimization of the various aspects of the main concepts for the PEA on the Van Dyke project; completing the PEA before the end of 2015; ongoing detailed core logging and sampling within the Pass Zone of the Eaglehead project; the results of the Quentec Titan 24 survey on the Sombrero Butte project; releasing the results of the optimization studies currently underway at Schaft Creek and the Preliminary Economic Assessment on the Van Dyke project; geological interpretations and statements about Copper Fox's strategy, future operations, prospects and the plans of management. Information concerning mineral resource and mineral reserve 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.

In connection with the forward-looking information contained in this news release, Copper Fox and its subsidiaries have made numerous assumptions regarding, among other things: the geological, metallurgical, engineering, financial and economic advice that Copper Fox has received is reliable and is based upon practices and methodologies which are consistent with industry standards. While Copper Fox considers these assumptions to be reasonable, these assumptions are inherently subject to significant uncertainties and contingencies. Additionally, there are known and unknown risk factors which could cause Copper Fox's actual results, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking information contained herein. Known risk factors include among others: the diamond drilling on the LaCasse zone on the Schaft Creek project may not intersect copper mineralization; the diamond drilling program on the Schaft Creek project may not be completed as planned or at all; the main concepts for the PEA on the Van Dyke project may not be the best method in which to complete the PEA; the PEA for the Van Dyke project may not be completed as planned or at all; the optimization of the main concepts for the PEA may not demonstrate economic viability of the Van Dyke project; the diamond drilling on the Eaglehead project may not intersect copper mineralization; the diamond drilling program on the Eaglehead project may not be completed as planned or at all; the re-logging and sampling or re-sampling of historical diamond drill core from the Eaglehead project may not return significant copper mineralization or any copper mineralization at all; the Quentec Titan 24 DCIP survey may not locate chargeability or resistivity signatures that would suggest buried porphyry copper mineralization on the Sombrero Butte project; the uncertainties relating to interpretation of the copper mineralization reported in the historical drill core; uncertainties relating to the drill results and the geology, continuity and grade of the mineralization; 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; the uncertainty of meeting anticipated program milestones; and uncertainty as to timely availability of permits and other governmental approvals.

Known risk factors also include fluctuations in copper prices and demand; currency exchange rates; and conditions in the financial markets and the overall economy may deteriorate.
