VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / November 28, 2023 / Fabled Copper Corp. ("Fabled Copper" or the "Company") (CNSX:FABL)(FRA:XZ7) announces that it has received its Mines Act Permit which entitles the Company to drill from 15 drill stations over a period of 2 years on the Muskwa Copper Project.
The Muskwa Project is comprised of the Neil Property, the Toro Property and the Bronson Property located in northern British Columbia. The Neil Property area was granted the drilling permit and in particular the Davis Keays Eagle Vein area is the Company's first priority interest. See Figure 1 below.

Peter Hawley, President, CEO reports; "We at Fabled Copper Corp. are very excited to finally receive our long-awaited drill permit. Subject to funding being available, the Company wishes to embark on a helicopter supported diamond drill program consisting of 3,000 - 5,000 meters on the First Priority Davis Keays Eagle Vein. This will be the first ever surface drilling of the Eagle Vein area known.
As outlined below and through detailed cutting-edge technology we believe the question is not if we will intercept the Eagle vein given our target accuracy is 3 cms BUT how many copper bearing veins will we intercept before hitting the Eagle Vein. Not only is the potential upside redefining the Eagle vein ore body but also evaluating the Eagle vein below the current 5,800 level and the potential of the parallel veins sets evaluated during the 2022 work program."
A May 1990 Feasibility Report to the Davis Keays Mining Co. ("David Keays") outlined a 6 year, 365,000 tons / year mining life of the Eagle Vein based on $0.60 per pound copper.
To support their findings, over period of 3 months, 8 feet high by 9 feet wide adits were driven by Davis Keays into the mountain on the Eagle vein on the 7,300 level, 6,950 level and 6,400 levels, and at every 300 foot centers 110-120 foot cross cuts were excavated for underground diamond drilling where the area was drilled above and below the levels.
In addition, all the entire excavated underground workings were mapped and vein chip sampled at 10 foot intervals and whereever the vein went into the wall, sampled with a test hole.
Based on these findings the Feasibility Report outlines Proven Reserves of 1,007,360 tons grading 3.56% copper, *Probable Reserves of 562,320 tons grading 3.18% copper and Possible Reserves grading 3.18% copper.
As mentioned in the report, "these Reserves are to the 5,800 foot level only but there is no geological reason to expect the vein the terminate at this level. There are excellent possibilities of extending these Reserves, through a continuing of exploration and development to depth on the Eagle Vein and other known veins as well.
Shortly thereafter, and as a result of the development work post Feasibility Study, the 5,800 level was developed. See the Company's press release dated September 28, 2022 to view the entrances of 6400 and 5800 adit portals.
The work carried out under the 1990 Feasibility Report was not carried out or reported using current categories of Mineral Resources or Mineral Reserves under NI 43-101. A Qualified Person has not done sufficient work to classify the abovementioned historical estimate as a current resource. The Company is not treating the historical estimate as a current resource. The Company's proposed 2024 drill program will seek to begin the process of verifying the historical estimate and exploring the Eagle Vein below the 5,800 level.

Below is a summary of the results of Fabled Copper's work on the Eagle Vein undertaken in the summer of 2022. The below dates reference the dates of the Company's press releases in which readers can find further information.
April 27, 2022 - Fabled Copper Corp Reports on the Davis Keays UAV Drone Mission Survey
"16 terrain - following missions were completed over the area with 3-23 cm resolution and grade accuracy of 1-3 cm."
- May 4, 2022 - Fabled Copper Reports on Davis Keays Eagle Vein Area with 6 Additional Parallel Veins discovered and Values as high as 6.73%
- May 11, 2022 - Surface Geophysics outlines Parallel EM Conductor to the Eagle Vein at Davis Keays. Detailed ground VLF - Electromagnetics and Total Field Magnetics. A strong parallel EM conductor was delineated 160 meters northwest of the Eagle Vein."
- May 25, 2022 - Underground Inspection of Eagle Vein does not disappoint.
- June 1, 2022 - Interpretation of Davis Keays Eagle Vein Area Defined Three Structural Corridors. One of which corresponds to the Eagle Vein with at least 5 additional vein sets in addition to the eagle vein and all having the same attitude.
- September 28, 2022 - Fabled Secures Underground Portals.
- October 12, 2022 - Fabled Presents Preliminary Underground LiDAR Survey Findings. 913.93 meters of the 6,400 foot level of the Eagle Vein was surveyed with a maximum error of 3.61 cm and clearly outlines the copper mineralization and veining."
The Company will provide details of the proposed 2024 drill program, which is dependent upon securing additional financing, in due course.
As always Fabled Copper acknowledges that the Muskwa project occurred on lands and in watersheds of importance to Kaska, Fort Nelson First Nation, and Treaty 8 Nations. We are honored to share responsibility for the stewardship of these places.
