HAWKEYE owns a 100% interest in the 4,202-hectare McBride Project situated approximately 12 kilometres east-northeast of the Village of Iskut, BC, Canada. The Property is located west of the Klappan River surrounding Thatue Mountain, and contiguous to the northern boundary of the Red Chris Mine.
The Property occurs within the Stikinia Terrane, primarily lies within the Jurassic-age Hazelton Group calc-alkaline volcanics and is located only 18 kilometres east of the Newmont (GT Gold) “Saddle” discovery which is a gold-rich copper porphyry system.
Message from the President
Mr. Greg Neeld, President & CEO states, “HAWKEYE is excited to be involved in the Golden Triangle of northwestern British Columbia. It provides HAWKEYE with an initial footprint in a significant mining district known for many producing mines (Red Chris, Snip, Johnny Mountain, Eskay Creek, Valley of the Kings), large advanced projects (GJ, Schaft Creek, Galore Creek, KSM) and recently several exciting projects highlighted by Newmont’s recent announcement it would pay C$393 million to purchase GT Gold’s Tatogga property. The continuing success of many projects and regional infrastructure development by Federal and British Columbia governments, combined with the increased gold prices will focus renewed exploration activity and the global investment community on mining growth opportunities within the Golden Triangle. The Company has purchased the Property based on its highly favourable location, similar geology, and structural and geophysical features as a step to additional strategic and prospective acquisitions in the northern region of the Golden Triangle. The McBride Property occurs within a northwest-trending fault-bounded block exhibiting general geological characteristics of the properties controlled by Newmont (GT Gold). We look forward to enhancing our exploration programs over the Property advancing it from exploration to discovery.”
The McBride Project
HAWKEYE’s McBride Project is situated in the northeastern corner of the Golden Triangle and situated approximately 12 kilometres north of the Red Chris Cu-Au mine, 10 kilometres east and northeast of the North Rok and Rok occurrences, and 18 kilometres east of the Saddle discovery of Newmont (GT Gold). The McBride claims are also contiguous to southeastern border of the Company’s Railway property. The promising northern IP chargeability target located on the northwest border of the McBride property which was not drilled in 2019 (see maps to left and below) due to the onset of unfavorable weather conditions extends onto the Railway property which is the reason Hawkeye quietly staked the Railway Property during 2019. This trend continues in a northwest direction for another two kilometres towards Thatue Mountain.
The principal occurrences in the region are hosted within the Hazelton Group and underlying Stuhini Group
commonly associated with structural controls and intrusions. The Jurassic-age Hazelton basalt, andesite dacite and rhyolite flows and pyroclastics unconformably overlie either Triassic Stuhini marine sediments and volcanics, or older Paleozoic Devonian to Permian sandstone, siltstone, conglomerate, limestone and marble. Hazelton lithologies are overlain on Thatue Mountain by Upper Jurassic Bowser subaerial to deep marine sediments. Monzonite, diorite to gabbro intrusions of Triassic to Late Jurassic age, and Tertiary volcanics intrude the above packages. Numerous structural breaks with carbonate and silica alteration transect the Hazelton volcanics.
