HAWKEYE STARTS WORK PROGRAMS IN THE BC GOLDEN TRIANGLE
Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada – HAWKEYE Gold & Diamond Inc. (the “Company” or “HAWKEYE”) (TSX.V-HAWK; Frankfurt Ticker: HGT; WKN: A12A61 ISIN: CA42016R3027): is pleased to announce that the Company has commenced its 2018 first phase work programs over its BC Golden Triangle Properties.
Exploration has begun on the Boomerang property which is located 25 kilometres northwest of Teck’s Schaft Creek Mine and 50 kilometres north of Teck and Newmont’s Galore Creek deposit. The Boomerang work program involves geological mapping, and the collection of an estimated 40 stream sediment samples, 490 soil samples and 200 rock samples.
Work on HAWKEYE’s McBride and Todagin Properties in the Golden Triangle is scheduled to start on August 20, 2018.
HAWKEYE’s Boomerang Project is situated directly south of Telegraph Creek, BC, and northeast of Yehiniko Lake which drains north on Yehiniko Creek to the Stikine River. The claims are transected by Boomerang Creek in the south and another unnamed creek in the north, both of which contain numerous peripheral drainages from a major WNW-oriented topographic high following the Hazelton Group geology. Similar to Hawkeye’s McBride and Todagin properties and those held by GT Gold in the northeastern section of the Golden Triangle, the principal geological units underlying the claims comprise the Hazelton and Stuhini Groups with precious and base metal mineralization commonly associated with structural controls or porphyry systems within and adjacent to intrusions.
All soil, silt and rock samples will be delivered on a regular basis to ALS Global’s analytical facility for precious metal and multi-element analysis. ALS Global in North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, is a facility certified as ISO 9001:2008 and accredited to ISO / IEC 17025:2005 from the Standards Council of Canada.
