York Harbour Metals Begins 7,500 Metre Phase 4 Drilling of High-Grade Copper-Zinc Project in Newfoundland
Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - September 27, 2022) - York Harbour Metals Inc. (TSXV: YORK) (OTC Pink: YORKF) (FSE: 5DE0) (the "Company" or "York") is pleased to report that the Company has commenced the Phase 4 diamond drilling program at it's York Harbour Copper-Zinc Project (the "Project") in Newfoundland, Canada.
York Director and Newfoundlander, Leo Power, comments on last weekend’s Storm Fiona devastation, “the storm caused massive waves that devastated areas of Newfoundland’s southwest coast. Like so many others, our team worked hard to prepare and put in long anxious hours throughout the storm. We stand united with all those impacted by Storm Fiona. We are grateful that the drilling contractors and technical team are safe and sound.”
Phase 4 Drilling Campaign
The initial part of the program is designed to test the depth extensions of the drill indicated Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide ("VMS") mineralization within the northeastern (A, D-G Zones) and southwestern (H Zone) parts of the Main Mine Area. Drilling will then begin testing other potential copper-zinc mineralized areas such as the No. 4 Brook and K zones that have not received any detailed exploration since the early 1990's. The follow-up drilling within the Main Mine area and initial exploration drilling of the No. 4 Brook, K zone and high priority IP targets are estimated to exceed 7,500 m.
The previously announced induced polarization ('IP') and resistivity geophysical surveys, that has been planned to cover the favourable upper and lower basalt geological contact, is nearing completion and the results are currently being interpreted. Preliminary IP-resistivityresults show several anomalous chargeability/resistivity anomalies both within the Main Mine area and elsewhere on the property that warrant considerable detailed drill testing. There are also anomalies that are located near or at the ends of survey grid lines that will require line extensions and follow-up IP-resistivity surveying.
The known geological and soil geochemical anomalies at the No. 4 Brook, K zone and Pinnacle zone all returned anomalous IP chargeability anomalies. In addition, preliminary interpretative work shows the presence of untested targets identified by the presence of significant chargeability responses southeast of the Main Mine area, a poorly exposed area that has been ignored by historic drilling This area is situated along the inferred favourable stratigraphic contact that hosts the known copper-zinc mineralization on the property.
Chairman Bruce Durham commented; "With Phase 4 drilling now underway and the IP survey nearing completion, we are preparing to begin the exciting, more grassroots portion of this phase of drilling that will test the newly developed geophysical targets while we also advance other projects such as the permitting of access to the number 4 adit."
The Company is also continuing with the applications required to access the 4 Level adit. Furthermore, the Company plans to carry out a preliminary metallurgical study of the copper-zinc mineralization and support a university-based study of the lithogeochemical and alteration features of the mineralization.
