York Harbour Metals Commences Phase 5 Drilling Campaign at High-Grade Copper-Zinc-Silver Project in Newfoundland, Canada

Toronto, Ontario – February 23rd, 2023 – York Harbour Metals Inc. (the “Company” or “York”) (TSXV: YORK) (OTCPK: YORKF) (Frankfurt: 5DE0) announces the commencement of its Phase 5 diamond drilling campaign at its York Harbour Copper-Zinc-Silver Project in Newfoundland, Canada.

Starting at the A Zone North Target, this drilling campaign is designed to continue testing the high-grade mineralization at, and north of the A Zone, after which the drill rig to the K Zone area,  Pinnacle Lake target, and then to the No. 4 Brook target. These four target areas are spread across a large area measuring 2,500 metres by 2,000 metres, areas that have been identified as potentially base metal mineralized targets with a lack of historic drill-testing. These areas provide significant upside potential to find new copper zinc silver mineralization thereby increasing the footprint of high-grade Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide (“VMS”) mineralization within the property.

This Phase 5 drilling campaign will feature a series of 13 to 20 holes that will comprise up to 3,500 metres or more of diamond drilling. The figure below shows where the drilling locations are planned. The Company has identified these target areas through the interpretation and combination of its 2022 Induced Polarization (“IP”) survey along with information from the recent and historical geological work, IP and electromagnetic (“EM”) survey results.

President & CEO Bruce Durham commented, “Previous campaigns were designed to reconfirm the presence of, and evaluate high-grade VMS mineralization proximal to the historic known mineralization and also collect the necessary data for a potential future initial resource estimate. With all of that information in hand and with the results of our recent IP survey we are in a position to begin drill testing of new target areas as we begin to test the potential size of the base metal mineralized bodies within the property. The project boasts great infrastructure and location and quality of mineralization Now it’s all about how much mineralization we can define property wide.
