VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / July 20, 2022 / Fabled Copper Corp. (“Fabled Copper” or the “Company”) (CSE:FABL; FSE:XZ7) announces additional results of 2021 surface field work on its Muskwa Copper Project. See Figure 1 below.

The Muskwa Project is comprised of the Neil Property, the Toro Property and the Bronson Property located in northern British Columbia. See Figure 2 below.

Peter Hawley, President, CEO reports; ” The Bronson property comprises 4 mineral tenures covering approximately 2,524.6 hectares and to date we have reported on the Book 6 UAV drone mission, related surface sampling and geophysical survey, property wide structural survey and ASTER compilation. In addition, we have reported on the Book 9 and 10 which may be the southern extent of the Book 6, and now the sampling on the 428 central copper occurrence. See Figure 3 below.”

428 Central Copper Occurrence

The 428 Central Copper Occurrence and surrounding areas to the north, west and south were prospected on July 20, and August 23& 27, 2022. Nine exposures of veining were prospected and sampled.

Six exposures are situated along a ravine that trends north- northwest into a broad valley, 1 exposure lies on the north side of the valley and 2 veins are exposed at the foot of a receding glacier, 250 meters west of the ravine. See Photo 1 below.

Twenty-nine samples (1 grab, 10 rubble / float and 18 chip) were collected over the veins and surrounding areas. On the north side of the valley, a non-mineralized, 2.50 meter wide, tension vein strikes 176 degrees. Grab sample D-723173 was collected at an elevation of 1,732 meters and returned an analysis low in copper (0.01%). See Photo 2 below.

In the ravine, 350 to 850 meters south-southeast from sample D-723173, 6 exposures of veining were sampled. Five exposures are located between 350 to 450 meters from D-723173 at elevations of 1,788 to 1,839 meters and the 6th exposure is located up the slope (elevation 2,080 meters). See Photo 3 below.

Eleven chip samples (D-723174, 176-180 & 182-184), collected across the veining at various locations, contained 0 to 3% sulphides. Copper assay results were low, < 0.39%. Two float / rubble samples, D-723181 & 185, taken within 20 meters of the veining, were mineralized with 5% chalcopyrite. Copper analyses for these 2 samples indicate sample D-723181 contains 2.09% Cu and D-723185contains 1.16% Cu.

Upslope 250 meters, at an elevation of 2,080 meters, the same ravine hosts a 6th exposure. Here the 428 Central Vein is exposed across 1.50 meters and contained semi-massive sulphides (8% chalcopyrite and 1% bornite). One chip sample, D-723508, was collected across a width of 1.50 meters and assayed 5.88% copper. See Photo 4 below

Approximately 250 meters west, from the location of sample D-723508, 2 outcrops of large (up to 2 meters in width and 90 meters in length) quartz-carbonate veining, lie exposed at the foot of a melting glacier (elevations of 2,014-2,023 meters). Eight chip samples were collected across these veins. See Photo 5 below

Over recent years it appears that the glacier has receded about 200 meters to the south. The veins contain 0 to 1% chalcopyrite, and little Cu, 0.0004-0.0021%. Also in the area, between the veins and a dyke outcropping 150 meters to the east, three mineralized (1-4% chalcopyrite & < 1% bornite) float samples (D-723503-505) were collected at elevations of 2,021 to 2,023meters.

These 3 samples assayed between 1.12 and 2.19% copper. At higher elevations of 2,180 and 2,098, 2 float samples, D-723506 & 507, were collected 250-300 meters to the south-southeast. Sample D-723506, with 1% chalcopyrite and moderate malachite, assayed 1.28% Cu and sample D-723507, with 20% sulphides, assayed 2.12% Cu.

On August 23, an example of mineralized float, D-723469, was collected while performing the reconnaissance VLF-EM surveying in the valley (elevation 1,620 meters) below the 428 Central veining.

This sample contained 10% chalcopyrite and 1% bornite and a Cu content of 4.12%. Two weak Fraser Filtered VLF-EM anomalies flank the location where this sample was collected.

All samples taken were photographic and GPS location taken plus a metal sample tag left in place for future reference if required. All this data plus the assay results were geotagged and placed in a .kml /.kmz file for use such as google earth for easy reference. See Photo 8 below.

QA QC Procedure

Analytical results of sampling reported by Fabled Copper Corp represent rock samples submitted by Fabled Copper Corp staff directly to ALS Chemex, Vancouver, British Columbia Canada. Samples were crushed, split, and pulverized as per ALS Chemex method PREP-31, then analyzed for ME-ICP61 33 element package by four acid digestion with ICP-AES Finish. ME-GRA21 method for Au and Ag by fire assay and gravimetric finish, 30g nominal sample weight.

Over Limit Methods

For samples triggering precious metal over-limit thresholds of 10 g/t Au or 100 g/t Ag, the following is being used:

Au-GRA21 Au by fire assay and gravimetric finish with 30 g sample.

Ag-GRA21 Ag by fire assay and gravimetric finish.

Fabled Copper Corp. monitors QA/QC using commercially sourced standards and locally sourced blank materials inserted within the sample sequence at regular intervals.
