All references to planned activities and technical information contained in this news release have been previously announced by way of news releases. All amounts are expressed in Canadian dollars unless otherwise stated.

Elmer B. Stewart, President and CEO of Copper Fox, stated, "the 2019 work has advanced efforts to surface value in the Schaft Creek Joint Venture and significantly advanced the potential of the Arizona copper projects. The Schaft Creek project team investigated the 133 ktpd scenario recommended by the 2018 Sizing and Infrastructure study. On Copper Fox operated projects, the Mineral Mountain and Sombrero Butte copper projects have been advanced to the next stage of exploration and an updated resource estimate for the Van Dyke project is expected in Q2 2020. The Company will continue in 2020 to employ the strategy of "potential maximum value added per dollar invested" to position the Company to take advantage of increases in either M&A activity or copper prices."

2019 Q4 Highlights

a) At Schaft Creek, the work focused on an in-depth review of the 133 ktpd scenario outlined by the 2018 Sizing and Infrastructure study. At the date of this news release, the final report for the 2019 Schaft Creek work program has not been completed.
b) At Van Dyke, the 2019 program has expanded the dimensions of the mineralized envelope of the copper deposit. The updated resource estimate for the Van Dyke project is expected in Q2 2020.
c) At Mineral Mountain, sampling and mapping outlined two large surface targets each with the potential to host a large porphyry copper deposit. Deep penetrating Induced Polarization geophysical exploration of these targets is required.
d) The Sombrero Butte project has been advanced to the "target testing" stage. Two large surface exploration targets have been delineated in a portion of a Laramide age intrusive stock exhibiting widespread potassic/sericite alteration associated with NNW and ENE trending copper-molybdenum vein sets underlain by positive chargeability anomalies.
