HAWKEYE ACQUIRES AN ADDITIONAL 1,360 HECTARES CONTIGUOUS TO THE MCBRIDE PROPERTY IN THE BC GOLDEN TRIANGLE
Hawkeye Gold & Diamond Inc. has entered into a sale and purchase agreement (SAPA) with the vendor of the Klappan project to acquire a 100-per-cent interest in the 1,360-hectare property, which is contiguous to the eastern boundary of Hawkeye's McBride property. The property is located along the Klappan River and is contiguous to the northern boundary of the Red Chris mine (Imperial Metals) and within two kilometres of properties held by GT Gold.
The property was staked to cover historical rock sampling with results up to 8.78 grams per tonne gold on the claims. The claims are underlain by the Stuhini sediments and Hazelton volcanics, which are the same rock types associated with the Red Chris mine, GT Gold's recent significant discoveries and other significant discoveries in the British Columbia Golden Triangle.
These claims will form part of the McBride property, increasing its size from 2,635 hectares to 3,995 hectares.
The property acquisition is subject to a $3,000 cash payment and the issuance of 100,000 shares and a further 250,000-share issuance should the project proceed to a preliminary economic assessment (PEA). The acquisition is not subject to a net smelter return royalty. The sale and purchase agreement between Hawkeye and the vendor is subject to Toronto Stock Exchange approval.
