Fabled Copper Corp. (CSE:FABL) is pleased to announce the third set of results of the 2021 surface field work program 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 at the south end of the Neil Property, followed by the Mac occurrence to the north, and now we move further north to the 8A copper occurrence, See Figure 2 below.
As seen with previously reported results from the Lady Luck and Mac occurrences, the 8A occurrence also displays high grade copper values. 9 samples were collected, once again, by the old fashioned boots on the ground, high altitude, sampling of the vein structure, over a vertical distance of 1,003 meters, starting at an altitude of 1,900 meters (approximately 1.9 kilometers vertically above sea level)."
Of the 9 samples collected, 5, reported less than 1% copper as expected; 4 reported greater than 1%, copper, 3 greater than 10% copper and 1 greater than 20% copper, (1% copper = 22.20 pounds). See Table 1 below.
Figure 2- Neil Property, 8A Location
Float Sample # D-723394, taken at the lowest elevation of 1,900 meters, was composed of white quartz with carbonate, moderate to abundant siltstone fragments, moderate malachite staining and contained 1.20 % copper. See Table 1 below.
Grab Sample # D- 723395 was taken at the same elevation and was composed of the wall rock of the mineralization which was A weakly sheared and fractured siltstone with minor quartz veinlets and stringers with less than 1% disseminated chalcopyrite returned anomalous copper grading 0.15% copper See Photo 1 and Table 1 below.

Another grab sample D-723396, taken at the same elevation, but composed of the contact mineralization. 60% of the sample was composed of quartz with iron carbonate containing minor dissolution cavities, limonite patches with less than 1% disseminated chalcopyrite and malachite staining. The other 40% of the sample was composed of the siltstone wall rock containing minor malachite copper alteration. This sample assayed 1.36% copper. See Table 1 below.
Grab sample # D-723397 was the last sample taken at the 1,900 meter level and was composed of the 8A vein / structure where the quartz, on a weathered surface, was black to dark rusty red-brown, while on a fresh surface it was mottled white to brassy yellow. Mineralization consisted of 8-10% disseminated chalcopyrite, with patches, and less than 1% bornite associated with the chalcopyrite. This sample of mineralization returned 14.30% copper. See Table 1 below.
Float sample # D-723402 was taken 6 meters above the previously described samples. It was taken from the main 8A structure / vein mineralization and was composed of semi-massive sulphides, and on the weather surface was chocolate brown with patches of green and buff yellow. On a broken fresh surface the color was mottled white to buff / brassy yellow, vuggy with minor dissolution cavities. Patches of limonite alteration with fine micro seams of graphitic shale were observed, and all over abundant malachite copper alteration containing 20% chalcopyrite returned an impressive 25.60% copper. See Photo 2, Table 1 below.

Float Sample # D-723401 was taken at 1,913 vertical meters, or 7 meters higher than the previously described sample. It was composed of barren siltstone wall rock with abundant white quartz - carbonate veinlets and stringers. No apparent sulphides were present and as expected returned 0.02% copper. See Table 1 below.
Float sample 723403 was taken at 1,928 vertical meters, or 15 meters higher than the previously described sample. It was composed of semi-massive sulphides, and was weathered black - rusty brown on the surface, with a slag like texture. The broken fresh surface was mottled white to brassy yellow in color. Minor vugs were common, and it showed moderate malachite copper alteration overall. Mineralization consisted of 25 - 30% chalcopyrite with less than 1% bornite. This sample returned 19.40% copper. See Photo 3 and Table 1 below.

Float sample D-723399 was taken at 2,001 vertical meters, 73 meters higher than sample D-723403 described above. This sample of barren siltstone breccia contained a quartz - carbonate matrix renealing the siltstone fragments, carbonate dissolution cavities and vugs. A trace of malachite staining and chalcopyrite was seen. This sample, as expected returned 0.08% copper. See Table 1 below.
Float Sample # D-723400 was taken at 2,003 vertical meters, 2 meters higher than the previously described sample. It was composed of sheared and fractured siltstone in contact with shale, moderate quartz carbonate veinlets, and stringers, along slickenslides, (fault rock movement indicators) with no apparent sulphides. As expected, this returned 0.07% copper. See Table 1 below.
