Hawkmoon Resources begins drilling at Lava

2021-10-26 09:03 ET – News Release

Mr. Branden Haynes reports


Hawkmoon Resources Corp. has commenced drilling on the 48-claim (2,449-hectare) Lava gold property situated approximately 20 kilometres west of Belleterre in the Abitibi-Temiscamingue region of Quebec. The property covers the Lavallee 38, 39, 40 and 41 showings, which expose multiple quartz veins, breccias and stockworks within the northeast-trending Lavallee shear zone (the LSZ). The property is located to the west of the Belleterre gold mining camp and its greenstone belt, and is underlain by tonalite that might host potential orogenic gold-type mineralization.

The 10-hole, 1,000-metre drill program will target the LSZ over a 400-metre horizontal distance down to a maximum vertical depth 100 metres. Only one of three holes drilled in this area in 2007 intersected the LSZ with an interval of 0.6 gram per tonne gold over 11.4 metres from 8.64 metres. The other two holes missed the zone completely. Hawkmoon engaged a geophysical consultant to complete 2-D modelling of the 2007 induced polarization and resistivity data. This interpretation work has very precisely defined a chargeability zone that appears to correspond to the downward extent of the LSZ on surface. The drilling will test this chargeability zone for gold mineralization at regular intervals along the trend of the LSZ.

Branden Haynes, president of Hawkmoon, states, “We are very pleased to have started a drill program on the Lava project within only two months of completing the drilling at our flagship Wilson project.” Please see the company’s news releases dated Oct. 5 and 13, 2021, for further information respecting results from the drill program carried out at the company’s Wilson project.
