York Harbour Metals Drills 14.77 Metres of 2.86% Copper, 6.95% Zinc, and 20.2 gpt Silver and 173.4 gpt Cobalt – Expands Mineralization at Main Mine Area






York Harbour Metals Inc.  (TSX-V: YORK) (OTCPK: YORKF) (Frankfurt: 5DE0) is pleased to report preliminary assay results from the York Harbour Copper-Zinc Project. Phase 3 drilling program that targeted mineralization in the Main Mine area. Diamond drill hole YH22-61 intersected 2.86% Copper, 6.95% Zinc, 20.2 gpt Silver and 436.5 g/t Cobalt over a drilled length of 14.77 metres at the Company’s York Harbour Copper-Zinc Project in Newfoundland. Additional drill core assay results are pending.



The results from this portion of the Phase 3 diamond drilling show that the historical drilling in the ‘D’ Zone either did not intersect this significant volcanogenic massive sulphide mineralization or for some reason this high-grade Copper-Zinc mineralization was not reported in the historical drill logs. This discovery significantly expands the D Zone mineralization and indicates that similar mineralization may extend along strike and downdip

Note: All intervals are drilling lengths, not true widths, since true widths have yet to be established.



Four mineralized zones were drill tested during the Phase 3 drilling campaign. It is evident from the drilling results that the D and G zones may be continuous and that more drilling is required to fully test their strike and downdip extensions. It is also evident from the 2021-22 drilling results that the D and G zones are considerably larger than previously documented and that the historical drilling either did not fully intersect these zones or did not report significant assay results. Thus, there is good potential for expanding the dimensions of these and other zones within the Main Mine area.
