Fabled Copper Reports on the Neil Copper Occurrence UAV Drone Mission Survey
March 30, 2022
Vancouver, British Columbia - March 30, 2022 – Fabled Copper Corp. (“Fabled Copper” or the “Company”) (CSE: FABL; FSE: XZ7) announces the results of their 2021 surface field work on it’s Muskwa Copper Project comprised of the Neil Property and the Toro Property in British Columbia. The Company also holds rights to the Bronson Property. See Figure 1 below.

Peter Hawley, President, CEO reports; A total of 19 specific areas were mapped and prospected during the 2021 field season and we started the New Year by reporting our findings on the Lady Luck occurrence in the south end of the Neil Property, followed by the Mac; the 8A, Harris, the 2a and 2b, the Creek, Keays south, Belcher Creek, the Magnum Mine UAV Done Mission, the Magnum copper deposit and now the Neil vein UAV Drone Mission.” See Figure 2 below.
Figure 2- Neil Property, Neil Copper Occurrence Location
The Neil copper occurrence hosts two styles of high-grade copper mineralization which is found in the Neil vein and the adjoining mineralized quartz sulfide breccias over 1,000 meters vertically and 1,500 meters along strike. Widths vary from a few meters to 30 meters in width. See Photo 1 below.

Figure 3 – Neil Vein Target UAV Drone Survey Area
As part of the 2021 exploration 5 selected areas were surveyed by an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) photogrammetry survey was conducted over the Harris, Eagle, Neil and Magnum veins by Drone North, See Figure 3 above for Neil survey area.
The purpose of the UAV photogrammetry surveys were to:
(i) Generate high resolution photogrammetry datasets for the vein target to better understand bedrock controls on copper mineralization.
(ii) Generate high resolution Digital Terrain Models (DTMs) to assist with 3D modelling of the targets.
(iii) Generate baseline imagery to record current state of surface disturbance at sites that will be actively explored in coming years.
Equipment used to carry out UAV photogrammetry surveys consisted of a
DJI Phantom 4 Pro v2.0 optical 20 megapixel camera drone with both a mechanical shutter and an
upgraded rover L1/L2 Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receiver. A multi - frequency Sunnav
G10 base station was set to allow for PPK corrections of the UAV rover receiver location information. See Figure 4 below.
Figure 4 - UAV Drone Survey Area
Ground control point (GCP) data were acquired during surveying. Twenty-seven terrain-following missions were completed to survey the Magnum target with a total of 4,720 photographs acquired during surveying and the final GSD`s (resolution) were 4.92 cm for theorthomosaic and 19.70 cm for the digital surface model (DSM). See Figure 5 below.
Figure 5- UAV Neil Target Survey Data Points
Data products generated include 3-23 cm resolution colour orthophoto mosaics, Digital Surface Models (DSM) and Digital Terrain Models (DTM). Hillshade models were also generated for
each target area. Survey grade accuracy (1-3 cm) ground control point data was also acquired at the time of the UAV survey. See Figures 6, 7 below.

The data generated was used for in-field targeting of visual copper occurrences on the color orthophoto due to the 3 cm resolution which lead to field examination of the mineralized unit to sampling of the Neil vein where a total of 20 samples were collect as a first pass evaluation. See Figures 8, below. Press link here to view Neil Vein drone flight mission.

Using the results of the data gathered by the UAV drone in the 2021 field season the field crew will further sample in further detail and complete mapping the extensive Neil vein / breccia.
An additional release on the sampling and results of the Neil vein / breccia deposit will be forth coming in the following weeks.
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.
