York Harbour Metals Inc. announce the start of drilling at the Pinnacle Target (“Pinnacle”) on its Copper-Zinc-Silver VMS project in Newfoundland and Labrador.

This is a significant milestone for the Company as it represents the first-ever drilling at the Pinnacle Target. The Pinnacle Target is one of the most prospective areas of the York Harbour project, with significant potential to host high-grade copper, zinc, and silver mineralization.

The Company’s local field team Planet X Exploration Services Ltd. & Forage Fusion Drilling Ltd. have completed the helicopter supported drill pad preparation; finalized drill rig mobilization and assembly over the initial Pinnacle Target. Drill testing is set to begin immediately.

The Pinnacle Target was historically identified as having a large anomaly, confirmed by geophysical surveys and geological mapping but has never been drill-tested. The potential of testing the outer areas of the inferred distribution of VMS mineralization with folded volcanic sequence adds to the excitement around this project.

We couldn’t be more excited to have reached this important milestone of our exploration program,” stated Bruce Durham, President & CEO of York Harbour Metals. “The start of drilling at the Pinnacle target marks a significant advancement in our mission to unlock the potential of the York Harbour project. This project has the potential to greatly expand the known high-grade VMS mineralization zones throughout the project, and we are eager to witness the results of our efforts.
