Message: Fabled Copper Secures Underground Adits
Fabled Copper Corp. ("Fabled Copper" or the "Company") (CSE:FABL)(FSE:XZ7) announces that from mid-June - Early September 2022 they were successful in securing 4 adit entrances on its Muskwa Copper Project. See Figure 1 below.

Peter Hawley, President, CEO reports; " We at Fabled Copper Corp are continuing to work diligently to ensure effective stewardship of the lands by securing open adit entrances which could be a potential hazard not only to the guide and outfitter of the area but also wildlife. By taking this approach not only do we prevent a potential accident but also secure the historical adits in case access is required at a future time."
"As always Fabled Copper acknowledges that the Muskwa project occurred on lands and in watersheds of importance to Kaska, Fort Nelson First Nation, and Treaty 8 Nations. We are honoured to share responsibility for the stewardship of these places."
From mid-June - early September 2022 the Fabled crew worked on the cleaning and rehabilitation of 4 adits entrances
A 1 tonne mini-excavator was slung into and moved around by a 205 helicopter during the moves. See Photo 1 below.

The first of the 4 adits worked on was the Davis Keays Eagle Vein 6400 level, followed by the Eagle Vein 5950 level, the 5800 level of the Harris vein and then the final adit for the season, the Magnum 5200 level.
Davis Keays Eagle Vein 6400 Level
The initial snow clearing began in mid-June as at the 6,400-foot elevation the spring melt had not begun at that time. See Photo 2 below.

Once all the snow was removed from all exposed rock faces including the back or the roof of the entrance of the adit, all were then mechanically scraped to remove all loose debris that could pose a safety hazard and two munster heaters were placed in the entrance to melt the ice plug. See Photos 3-4 below.

While the ice plug was thawing out, the base at the entrance was constructed and a tower built to clear future snow falls and a door with lock installed, see Photo's 5,6 and 7 below.

In closing, this major undertaking which not only included the slinging of the excavator by helicopter but also all the wood and metal to support building the adit closures was done under budget and on time. The first priority is to look out for the safety of our workers and to prevent any potentially dangerous situations to people and wild life.
