York Harbour Metals Inc. announce that it has received government approvals that allow the Company to immediately commence a core drilling program on its 100%-owned Bottom Brook property located near Stephenville, Newfoundland and Labrador.
The Company announced on July 31st that initial fieldwork had discovered a new zone of high-grade rare earth element (“REE”) mineralization 750 metres south-southwest of the historic U3 REE zone. The program also confirmed high grade surface samples near the U3 occurrence.
Grab samples collected from BB and U3 REE showings returned TREO values ranging from 0.07 to 22.3%. High-grade sample 116575 from the U3 showing included very high concentrations of magnetic rare earth elements neodymium, praseodymium, terbium, and dysprosium (“Nd, Pr, Tb, and Dy”) also known as (“magnet REE’s” or “MRE’s). Sample 116575 contained total MREs of 5.00 (50kg/t MRE).
The Company will start mobilizing geological personnel this week and the drilling equipment and personnel will be on-site to start drilling by November 6th. The first drill holes will test the two REE targets at the BB zone that the Company mapped and sampled during the 2023 field work, as well as a third nearby overburden-covered target with anomalous airborne and ground magnetics results. See accompanying Figure 1 for the location of the BB showing and the regional REE exploration targets.
