VANCOUVER, BC, Dec. 1, 2022 /CNW/ - Arctic Fox Minerals Corp. (CSE: FOXY) (the "Company" or "Arctic Fox") is pleased to announce that it has completed its lidar survey and is awaiting on the data to be interpreted for its flagship property located outside of Yellowknife, NT.

In August of 2021, the Company contracted Sub Arctic Geomatics to complete a multi hectare LiDar airborne and ground geophysical surveys on claims K15962 and K15963. Upon further review of its Uptown Gold Project, the Company decided that claims K15962, K15963, K15964, and K15965 have the most potential to yield high grade drilling results. (See press release dated November 22,2022).

The importance of this Lidar survey was to identify subtle topographic features such as river terraces and river channel banks, glacial landforms, to measure the land-surface elevation beneath the vegetation canopy, to better resolve spatial derivatives of elevation, and to detect elevation changes between repeat surveys have enabled many novel studies of the physical and chemical processes that shape the landscape of the Uptown Gold Project.

The Lidar survey was also crucial in helping Arctic Fox to identify structural geology and geophysics anomalies for the detection and study of faults, for measuring uplift.

Rob Geitl, CEO of Arctic Fox states,

"By identifying the specifics from our LiDAR survey on these claims we are extremely optimistic that the results will clearly identify the next steps of our business plan."
