YORK HARBOUR METALS INTERSECTS 29m of 5.25% COPPER & 436.5 g/t COBALT IN DRILL HOLE YH21-24

 

 

 

 

 

York Harbour Metals Inc. (TSX-V: YORK) (OTCPK: YORKF) (Frankfurt: 5DE0) is pleased to report high-grade copper and cobalt values in diamond drill hole YH21-24, grading 5.25% copper, 436.5 g/t cobalt, 8.97 g/t silver, and 0.801% zinc over a drilling length of 29.0 metres at the Company’s York Harbour Copper-Zinc Project in Newfoundland. Drill hole YH21-22 intersected strong zinc and copper values over a 5.26-metre interval, grading 2.84% copper, 31.96% zinc and 42.09 g/t silver.

 

 

The Phase 2 Drilling Program included 29 diamond drill holes, totaling 4,562 metres, that targeted volcanogenic massive sulphide (“VMS”) mineralization along a 400-metre strike length within the Main Area near the historic underground mine workings.

Bruce Durham, Chairman, commented, “High dollar value, high grade copper mineralization like the intersection in drill hole YH21-24 is very rare and they are important indicators of strong mineralizing fluid systems at work. We know there are numerous indications of copper and zinc mineralization in the local area and most remain only partially defined. By proceeding to drill these mineralized areas in detail we will begin to establish a solid understanding of the size, mineralogy, structural controls, and grade distribution within these various areas of known VMS style mineralization.
