York Harbour Metals Launches Field Program; Geological Mapping, Soil Sampling, and Testing Numerous Outcrops at Bottom Brook Rare Earth Project

Toronto, Ontario – May 11th, 2023 – York Harbour Metals Inc. (the “Company” or “York”) (TSXV: YORK) (OTCPK: YORKF) (Frankfurt: 5DE0) is pleased to announce the launch of a field exploration program designed to carry out exploration programs that will include geological mapping as well as testing and sample outcrops for rare earth metals at the Bottom Brook Rare Earth Project in northwestern Newfoundland. This program is part of our ongoing effort to expand our technical databases and outlining new drill targets for initial testing this summer.

The field exploration program will focus on several target areas that include areas where geological studies have indicated the presence of rare earth metals as well as new potential discovery areas. The program will involve detailed geological mapping, prospecting, and sampling of outcrops to identify the mineralization patterns of rare earth metals. The exploration team consists of experienced geologists and exploration professionals who will be using the latest technologies and techniques to carry out the program efficiently and with an aim to move known and potentially mineralized target to the drill-ready stage as quickly as possible.

The significance of rare earth metals is growing exponentially, with these elements being integral to high-tech products, including smartphones, electric vehicles, wind turbines, medical equipment, and various areas of military hardware. The booming demand for these commodities underscores the necessity of ensuring a sustainable and dependable supply chain as the world races towards electrification.

“The launch of this field exploration program is an exciting milestone for our company,” said Bruce Durham, President and CEO. “We are dedicated to responsibly exploring and developing our critical minerals projects. This program represents a significant step towards our goal of identifying a new deposit and securing a reliable supply of rare earth metals. The field exploration program is expected to run for the next few months in advance of a planned drilling program that we expect to kick off later in the summer. The results of the initial program will guide our decisions regarding the drilling of the various targets we develop.”
