About Silvore Fox Minerals Corp.
Silvore Fox Minerals Corp. is a Bedford, Nova Scotia, Canada based public mineral exploration company. On June 4th, 2008, the Corporation acquired 3214399 Nova Scotia Limited as a wholly owned subsidiary,including 100% earned mineral rights to the claims at Coxheath, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia (known as the 'Coxheath Deposit'). The Corporation has an experienced management and geological team. The Coxheath deposit model is believed to be analogous to Pacific Rim volcanogenic porphyry copper deposits. Alteration patterns in association with the regional geological setting further suggest a possible model linking the diorite-hosted porphyry-style mineralization at Coxheath and an epithermal system approximately 4 km to the east.
Silvore Fox Minerals further recent acquisition agreement of the 'Oceanview' property, strengthens SFX's position as a regional mineral exploration company. It is a complimentary prospect to the multi-element Coxheath deposit.
