York Harbour Metals Reports High Grade Copper & Zinc Values Grading 2.32% Copper & 5.94% Zinc






York Harbour Metals Inc. (TSX-V: YORK) (OTCPK: YORKF) (Frankfurt: 5DE0) is pleased to report assay results for seven diamond drill holes at the Company’s York Harbour Copper-Zinc Project in Newfoundland.



The Phase 2 diamond drilling program concluded on December 15th, 2021, which included 29 drill holes totaling 4,562 metres. The program was undertaken to test strike and depth extensions of reported volcanogenic massive sulphide (“VMS”) mineralization along a 400-metre strike length within the Main Area, proximal to the historic mine workings. The first assay results from Phase 2 drilling program were reported on diamond drill hole YH21-18 in a news release dated February 14th, 2022.



Highlights of the First Eleven Drill Holes of the Phase 2 Diamond Drilling Program


  • YH21-14 with 9.92 m of 1.00% copper, 0.13% zinc, 1.76 g/t silver, and 114.7 g/t cobalt (including 2.00 m of 2.25% copper, 0.21% zinc, 3.84 g/t silver, and 138.6 g/t cobalt)


  • YH21-15 with 8.13 m of 0.87% copper, 0.23% zinc, 1.28 g/t silver, and 136.0 g/t cobalt


  • YH21-18 with 25.00 m of 2.70% copper, 9.04% zinc, 17.78 g/t silver, and 163.6 g/t cobalt (including 10.00 m of 2.47% copper, 16.52% zinc, 36.43 g/t silver, and 93.0 g/t cobalt)


  • YH21-20 with 21.80 m of 2.32% copper, 5.94% zinc, 5.17 g/t silver, and 54.0 g/t cobalt



Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide Mineralization in Drill Core

Figure 1: Massive sulphide mineralization in core from 95 to 99.32 metres in DDH YH21-18, part of a longer 25-metre intersection from 93 to 118 metre assaying 2.7% copper, 9.04% zinc, 17.78 g/t silver, 0.15g/t gold and 164 g/t cobalt.

Figure 2: Massive sulphide mineralization in core from 111.27 to 115.1 metre in DDH YH21-20, part of a longer 21.8-metre intersection from 108.4 to 130.2 m. assaying 2.32% copper, 5.94% zinc, 5.17 g/t silver, and 54 g/t cobalt.


Chairman Bruce Durham commented; “The strong copper-zinc grades in drill hole 20 are further confirmation of the presence of long intervals with very high grades in some of the VMS style mineralization we have been intersecting in shallow drilling at York Harbour. While it is still early days in the exploration process, the results in holes 18 and 20 point to the need for a lot more work in this part of the main area. The project now covers the entire favourable basalt flow contact and there is only very limited historical exploration along much of that folded contact even though copper, zinc and massive pyrite have been found elsewhere on the property.” 


The following table documents the Phase 2 drilling results for drill holes YH21-10 to YH21-20.

Note:   All intervals are drilling lengths, not true widths, since true widths have yet to be established. * The results for YH21-18 were reported on February 14th, 2022.

The Project area lies within the Bay of Islands Complex terrane situated on the west coast of Newfoundland. The York Harbour property has been subject to documented exploration and production since 1893. Mafic-type flow-dominated (Cyprus type) copper-zinc-silver massive sulphide zones are well documented within eleven zones along a 400-metre strike length with many zones open for further expansion. An overturned synclinal fold is interpreted to extend and repeat the favourable stratiform mineralization along the eastern and western portions of the property where geological, geophysical, and/or geochemical anomalies are known but have received little exploration attention.
