Fabled Copper Samples High Grade Copper Including 19.60% and 14.40 g/t Ag at the Mac Occurrence

January 18, 2022

Vancouver, British Columbia – Fabled Copper Corp. (“Fabled Copper” or the “Company”) (CSE: FABL) announces the second set of results of 2021 surface field work on it’s Muskwa Copper Project comprised of the Neil Property (previously referred to as the North Block) and the Toro Property (previously referred to as the South Block)  in Northwestern British Columbia. The Company also holds rights to the Bronson Property. See Figure 1 below.

Peter J Hawley, President, CEO reports; “We started the new year by reporting our findings on the Lady Luck occurrence in the south end of the Neil Property and  we now move north to the “Mac” occurence, See Figure 2 below.

As seen with respect to the Lady Luck occurence, the Mac occurrence continues to display high grade copper values in a total of 5 surface samples. The samples were collected by the old fashion boots on the ground, high altitude, sampling of the vein structure, over a vertical distance of 41 meters, starting at an altitude of 1,602 meters (approximately 1 mile vertically).”

Of the 5 samples collected, all 5 reported greater than 1%, copper, 3 greater than 5% copper, 2 greater than 10% copper and 1 greater than 15% copper, (1% copper = 22.20 pounds). See Table 1 below.

Figure 2- Neil Property, Mac Location

The Mac Occurrence mineralization is mainly brecciated hosted chalcopyrite with lesser amounts of pyrite at the intersection of a north striking and northeast striking diabase dike / vein system. The breccia is silicified and healed with quartz and approximately 7.6 meters where observed.

While conducting the field visit the team discovered at the 1,604 meter elevation a 1968 claim pin # L829 and a pre-dated claim post. See Photo 1 below.

Sample # D-723261 taken at the lowest elevation of 1,602 meters and was composed of quartz with carbonate, was mottled gray white – dark gray on fresh surface, with abundant sediment fragments, minor dendritic back mineral (possibly pyrolusite), and moderate malachite staining. It was vuggy and pitted with 5% copper as patches and disseminated, and returned 4.39% copper with 1.60 g/t Ag. See Table 1 below.

Sample # D- 723263 was taken 4 meters vertically above D-723261 at a vertical elevation of 1,606 meters where the Mac Structure surfaced again. A float  sample of the rubble returned 11.60% copper and 3.50 g/t Ag. The sample consisted of quartz, was mottled gray – white of weather surface and brassy yellow with green patches on a fresh surface. It contained moderate malachite staining and was 25 – 30% chalcopyrite as semi-massive sulphides. See Photo 2, Table 1 below.

At 1,618 meters the mineralized structure continued and rubble sample D-723262 assayed 4.39% copper and 3.70 g/t Ag , 12 meters vertically above  Sample # D- 723263. It consisted of quartz carbonate, was light gray – white on fresh surface, had minor vugs and limonite patches, occasional cross cutting carbonate stringers with patches of chalcopyrite and moderate malachite staining. It was 3-4% chalcopyrite as patches and disseminated. See Table 1 below.

Float sample, # D-723264, returned 8.44% copper plus 2.70 g/t Ag at 1,622 meters vertically. The sample contained quartz and iron carbonate and was weathered dark – yellow brown, on a fresh surface mottled brown – off white – white and brassy yellow. It had minor vugs, moderate – abundant malachite staining, 20% chalcopyrite as “net” like textures of disseminated sulphides. See Table 1 below.

Sample D-723265 was taken at 1,643 meters, 21 meters higher than Sample D-723264. This sample consisted of a quartz with minor iron carbonate, frequent rusty orange patches, was vuggy with abundant malachite staining, trace azurite, 25% massive – semi massive chalcopyrite and chalcopyrite as patches, blebs and disseminations. This sample returned an impressive 19.60% copper with silver being elevated at 14.40 g/t. See Photo 3, Table 1 below.

  • Samples taken over 41 meters vertically

Moving Forwards

The impressive grades over 41 meters vertically on the Mac warrant follow up in the 2022 season. The Mac vein / breccia structures have never been drilled and remain open in all directions.

 

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.
