York Harbour Metals Continues to Intersect Massive Copper-Zinc Mineralization in the Phase 4 Drilling Program

Vancouver, British Columbia – October 11th, 2022 – York Harbour Metals Inc. (the “Company”) (TSXV: YORK) (OTCPK: YORKF) (Frankfurt: 5DE0) is pleased to provide a visual update from its current fully-funded Phase 4 Drill Program at its 100%-owned York Harbour Copper-Zinc Project situated in Northwestern Newfoundland.

Phase 4 Drill Program began drilling between known mineralized zones to determine whether the high-grade copper-zinc volcanogenic massive sulphide (“VMS”) lenses connect as larger, expanded zones.   The Company has contracted Forage Fusion Drilling to carry out the NQ-size diamond drilling, and they have maintained a high level of drilled metres per shift.  Fourteen (14) diamond drill holes have been completed to date totalling 3,627 m.

The geological logs for the first nine drill holes report the following visible mineralized intervals.  In addition, there are numerous shorter, similar mineralized intervals with stringer and shear-hosted mineralization.

Note:  The above intervals are drilling lengths, not true widths, because the true orientation of the mineralization has yet to be fully established.

Chairman Bruce Durham commented “Every designed program we have completed on the project has given our technical team a better understanding of the project and the potential of expanding the mineralization significantly. We continue to intersect semi massive and massive sulphide mineralization in many of the holes and the Phase 4 drilling is ongoing. We continue to intersect copper and zinc mineralization between drill holes that intersected mineralization previously and we are continuing to expand the footprint of the known mineralization beyond the previous limits of the known mineralization.”
