All tenements in the Red Fox Selwyn Project, located south of Cloncurry, have now been granted. The three newly granted tenements, along with the granted Mt Carol tenement (EPM 26571) increase Red Fox' holdings in the area from 108 sq km to 331.5 sq km.
Red Fox has returned significant gold results from recent field work at GW Gossan in the Cloncurry district of NW QLD. Gold values, in rock chip samples up to 17g/t Au with associated anomalous cobalt, bismuth, molybdenum and tungsten values were received. The work has extended the known mineralisation to at least 3km of strike. Soil values up to 1.05g/t Au were also returned.
Red Fox has commenced its 2022 field season with work at the Eveleigh Zinc-Lead-Silver and Butchers Bore Gold Projects. Field work will consist of mapping and geochemical sampling, ahead of proposed drilling due to commence in mid 2022.
Red Fox awarded two grants for drilling from the QLD Government under Round 6 of the Collaborative Exploration Initiative (CEI) Funding. At Eveleigh ($200,000 grant) drilling will test a potential silver-lead-zinc target and at Ernest Henry West ($120,000 grant) drilling will test an IOCG (copper-gold) target. Drilling is expected to be carried out in early to mid 2022.

Red Fox has received results from a field program at Copper Creek carried out late last year. Work has identified copper anomalous soil anomaly over 2.2km with a strong central zone over 1km associated with probably sodic alteration. Previous rock samples from this zone returned up to 3.29% Cu and 0.32g/t Au.
3 February 2022
Red Fox has received results from a field program at Butchers Bore carried out late last year. Work has identified gold values up to 3.86g/t Au from a structure defined over 700m with soil anomalies open to the west, east and south.

Red Fox has identified high priority target areas in the Ernest Henry West EPM 26010. A geophysical modelling exercise and structural interpretation indicates a direct comparison can be made between the Ernest Henry West area and the E1 Group of Deposits, mined by Glencore Ernest Henry Operations. Red Fox has identified drill targets at two prospects in the area.

Red Fox has completed a gravity survey at Camel Bore Prospect in its Selwyn Project, northwest Queensland. The survey has defined a large gravity anomaly within the prospective stratigraphy. This is interpreted to represent a body of significant density contrast to the surrounding meta-sediments.
14 October 2021
Red Fox acquires additional EPMs in Selwyn district targeting Cu/Au and base metals. Highlighting the Jasper Ridge prospect where shallow intersections of copper-lead-zinc and cobalt mineralisation have been made by previous explorers in holes with maximum depth of 80m.

Drilling has been completed at the Gipsy Creek project in the Ernest Henry area in northwest Queensland. Logging and sampling of the core is in progress. Results are expected in a couple of weeks.
26 April 2021
Drilling has commenced at Gipsy Creek project in the Ernest Henry area in northwest Queensland. Three holes are planned, funded by a QLD Government CEI grant. The program is expected to take several weeks to complete.
