(hereinafter “CGA”) to Plan, Manage, and Execute its 2018 first phase work programs over the McBride, Todagin and Boomerang Projects, which are strategically located in BC’s renowned Golden Triangle. CGA will work closely with HAWKEYE’s Geology Team to coordinate the work programs, consisting of geological mapping, silt, soil and rock sampling and a potential drill program on prioritized targets to follow in October.
CGA has over twenty-five years of knowledge and experience operating and managing programs for junior and senior companies in BC Golden Triangle and elsewhere in the Canadian Cordillera, with significant contributions to major discoveries in the region. The principals for CGA on Hawkeye’s programs are Mr. Andrew Mitchell, B.Sc., P.Geo. and Mr. Charlie Greig, M.Sc., P.Geo. Mr. Mitchell is HAWKEYE’s designated Qualified Person (QP) within the meaning of National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101”).
Mr. Mitchell is an exploration geologist with nearly 10 years of experience focused in grass roots exploration. Prior to joining CGA, much of his experience involves sampling, mapping, and managing drill programs with Archer, Cathro and Associates Ltd. in the Yukon and northern British Columbia. He is currently the Project Manager at SSR Mining’s SIB property within the Golden Triangle, where 9,334 metres of diamond drilling was completed in 2017.
Mr. Mitchell states: “I am very excited to be involved with HAWKEYE. They are a professional company who are focused on discovery. We feel that their Golden Triangle properties have significant potential, with Todagin and McBride situated in the same district as the Red Chris mine, and Boomerang located northwest of the Schaft Creek deposit.”
Mr. Charlie Greig, who will act as an advisor to Hawkeye, has mapped, or worked on, a number of projects which have subsequently become producers, including Brucejack Lake in The BC Golden Triangle (Pretium), La India in Mexico (Grayd–Agnico Eagle), Wolverine in Yukon (Atna-Westmin, Yukon Zinc), Alamo Dorado in Mexico (Corner Bay-Pan American Silver), and Bisha in Eritrea (Nevsun).
