YORK HARBOUR COPPER-ZINC PROJECT
PHASE 1 | COMPLETED
The surface grab and channel sampling program targeted a 100 m strike length of the ‘A’ Zone and yielded high-grade copper and zinc surface rock samples, including up to 16.8% Copper, 30.4% Zinc, and 119.6 g/t Silver.
EXPLORATION DIAMOND DRILLING
Phase 1 diamond drilling program was designed to confirm historical drilling results and reported grades for known lens of massive and semi-massive sulphide mineralization, primarily within the ‘A’ and ‘D’ zones. The Company completed 9 drill holes, totaling 1,222 m. 3 holes were abandoned when they encountered a wide fault zone and a section of the 400-level adit. The other 6 drill holes all intersected sulphide mineralization.
ASSAY HIGHLIGHTS FROM PHASE 1:
YH21-04: 34m of .91% Cu, 0.66% Zn, 1.35 g/t Ag, .03 g/t Au, 79.74 g/t Co
including 2m of 3.68% Cu, 0.08% Zn, 3.59 g/t Ag, 0.01 g/t Au, 79.74 g/t Co;
& 9.3m of 1.57% Cu, 0.05% Zn, 1.14 g/t Ag, 0.01 g/t Au, 131.82 g/t Co.
YH21-06: 52.2m of 0.85% Cu, 0.53% Zn, 1.75 g/t Ag, 0.01 g/t Au, 91.81 g/t Co
Including 5.8m of 3.52% Cu, 0.09% Zn, 2.80 g/t Ag, 0.01 g/t Au, 283.03 g/t Co; &
2.6m of 6.31% Cu, 0.13% Zn, 4.67 g/t Ag, 0.01 g/t Au, 450.65 g/t Co
YH21-08: 9.4m of 0.46% Cu, 0.53% Zn, 2.67 g/t Ag, 0.08 g/t Au, 60.09 g/t Co
Including 6.6m of 0.62% Cu, 0.65% Zn, 3.37 g/t Ag, 0.11 g/t Au, 66.92 g/t Co
PHASE 2 | COMPLETED
CONTINUED DRILLING PROGRAM
Phase 2 exploration included 29 drill holes, which totaled ~ 4,562 m of drilled core. It is designed to test the strike and depth extensions of most of the reported VMS mineralization and similar mineralization both along the strike and downdip, in the vicinity of the historical mine workings along more than 400 m of strike length.
At two of these historical intercepts the latest drill holes YH21-13 and 14 have confirmed significant VMS mineralization. Thus, the Phase 2 program included both delineation and exploration drilling.
HOLE YH21-18 ASSAY RESULTS: 25m of 2.7% Copper, 9.0% Zinc, 17.78 gpt Silver and 164 gpt Cobalt
PHASE 3 | IN PROGRESS
EXPANDED DRILLING PROGRAM
The Company has proceeded with expanded drilling programs in the Main area and with exploration drilling targeting several identified volcanic-hosted massive sulfide (“VMS”) copper-zinc-silver mineralization along the known 450m strike length. Phase 3 includes 22 planned drill holes totalling 4,000m.
In addition to defining mineralization along strike, this drilling will also test up and down dip extensions of the known mineralization.
The company is also in the process of getting permits to gain access and explore the No 4 brook and the 400-level and sea level adits.
