Message from the President

Mr. Greg Neeld, President & CEO of HAWKEYE stated, “We are pleased to have acquired this high-potential, multi-commodity property and look forward to the potential development of the magnetite prospect in the near-term and exploration of a new high grade copper showing that has never been drilled. The Bonanza Property is consistent with HAWKEYE’s new model to acquire properties with production potential while also providing blue sky upside. Magnetite can be sold on a regional basis in British Columbia in markets to the coal and concrete industries, as well as in petroleum pipeline construction and also on an international basis.
