Copper Fox Announces Court Decision on Judicial Review of Eaglehead Project
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 18, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Copper Fox Metals Inc. (“Copper Fox” or the “Company”) (TSX-V:CUU) (OTC:CPFXF) is pleased to announce that the decision of the Supreme Court of British Columbia related to the judicial review in which petitioners had challenged a decision of the Chief Gold Commissioner (the “CGC”) for the province of British Columbia in respect of Carmax Mining Corp.’s (“Carmax”) (TSX-V:CXM) Eaglehead Project has been received.
By way of background to the court’s decision, on June 14, 2016 Carmax received notice that certain parties had filed a Petition in the Supreme Court of British Columbia against the CGC requesting a judicial review of the CGC’s decision to reinstate Carmax’s mineral claim #1034634. The decision of the CGC was issued on April 22, 2016.
Copper Fox advises that the judicial review described in a number of news releases made by Carmax and in Copper Fox’s quarterly and annual MD&A disclosures was heard in the Supreme Court of British Columbia on January 24, 2017. Neither Copper Fox nor Carmax were a party to the proceedings.
On July 17, 2017, the Supreme Court issued its oral reasons for judgment on the Petitioners’ challenge. The Supreme Court dismissed the Petition, including the Petitioners’ request for an order setting aside the CGC’s decision.
The petitioners have 30 days to file an appeal from the court’s decision to the British Columbia Court of Appeal.
Copper Fox, through its wholly owned subsidiary Northern Fox Copper Inc., owns 65.4% of the issued shares of Carmax Mining Corp.
