Fabled Copper Samples High Grade On The Keays South Occurrence With 28.30% Copper
Fabled Copper Corp. ("Fabled Copper" or the "Company") (CSE:FABL) (FSE:XZ7) announces the eighth 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.

"We have previously reported 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 and now the Keays south copper occurrence. See Figure 2 below.
The Keays south showing is located approximately 500 meters southwest from the Keays north underground development and thought to be the same mineralized vein system.

The high grade mineralized Keays south vein averages 1 meter in width where observed with numerous large angular sluff float vein fragments.
A total of 6 samples; 2 grabs, 1 chip and 3 floats, were taken over a range in vertical elevation of 106 meters.
Grab sample D - 723231 taken at the 1,827 meter elevation consisted of quartz carbonate veining with minor graphitic fragments, abundant malachite alteration, with 8% chalcopyrite as semi-massive patches and disseminations, with a trace of bornite. This sample assayed 8.05% copper See Photo 1 and Table 1 below.

Chip sample D - 723232 was taken at the same elevation and over a width of 0.30 meters. This chip sample was composed of white quartz and beige iron carbonate veining, with moderate malachite alteration, patchy chalcopyrite as bands, and 5% chalcopyrite as patches and disseminated. This chip sample returned 3.07% copper. See Photo 2 and Table 1 below.

Grab sample D - 723233 taken at the 1,771 meter elevation consisted of white quartz carbonate veining with minor bands, seams of shale / siltstone fragments, abundant malachite alteration. It contained a 1.5 cm band of +20% chalcopyrite and 1-3% chalcopyrite overall. This sample returned 0.92% copper. See Table 1 below.
Chip sample D - 723234 taken at the 1,742 meter elevation consisted of white quartz carbonate and iron carbonate veining, black to dark brown on the weathered surface, and mottled yellow to brassy yellow with minor green alteration. There was minor malachite and also shale fragments, with 20% chalcopyrite, trace bornite and azurite. This sample returned 16.15% copper. See Photo 3 and Table 1 below.

Float sample D - 723235 taken downhill at 1,728 meters vertically consisted of white quartz, rusty dark red brown on the weathered surface with vuggy and hackley textures, trace malachite, 2% pyrite as gray patches up to 2 cms in size, and 2% chalcopyrite as blebs and disseminated. This sample returned 1.37% copper. See Table 1 below.
Chip sample D - 723236 taken at the lowest elevation 1,719 meters consisted of semi-massive chalcopyrite and quartz, rusty black to dark brown on the weathered surface and brassy yellow on a fresh surface, with a weak banded texture, minor malachite copper alteration, 95% chalcopyrite, trace bornite, hand sample collected for reference. This sample returned 28.30% copper. See Table 1 and Photos 4 and 5 below.

The Keays south veining, due to its high grade nature, and that it continues over 500 metres northeast to the Keays north development, certainly warrants additional sampling, and will perhaps be investigated as a priority drill target for the summer of 2022.
