The Company is pleased to announce that they have signed an Option Assignment Agreement with CMC Metals Ltd. (TSX.V: CMB) on the Terra Nova property in Newfoundland.

Terra Nova Property details:

The Terra Nova property consists of 71 claims (6 licences) located 30 km northwest of Port Blandford in central Newfoundland. Access is from the town of Terra Nova via 12 km of transmission line road built from the Lower Churchill Falls power development project. HBK has an option to earn an 80% ownership in the property.

An alteration area of 12 square kilometers has been identified, which to date has been subjected to limited exploration. The project has the potential to host mesothermal gold-polymetallic deposits. The property lies within the Gander Zone, which is an area of significant exploration interest as a result of Newfound Gold Corp.’s Queensway gold project. Highlights of the property include:

  • The property currently comprises five mineralized showings (i) the Copper Vein; (ii) Nancy’s Gold Vein; (iii) New Alteration Zone; (iv) the Silver Pit; and (v) Galena Vein showing.
    • A grab sample collect at the Copper Vein showing produced 354 ppb Au, 43.8 g/t Ag, 2.33% Cu and>1,000 g/t W (Tungsten)
    • A grab sample at Nancy’s Gold Vein showing assayed 6,812 ppb Au, 159.6 g/t Ag, 1,562 ppm Cu and >1000 g/t W.
    • Samples collected from the Galena showing have reported assay values of 953 ppb Au, 59.8 g/t Ag, 7.2% Pb, and >1000 g/t W.

In March 2022 CMC Metals Ltd., completed a ground magnetometer survey (approx. 35-line km) with the services of McKeown Exploration Ltd., of St. John’s, Newfoundland. These surveys have helped to provide an indication of possible areas of mineralization associated with large-and local-scale structures (faults, dykes, shear zones, etc.), variations in the near surface geology as well as depth, and to identify demagnetized zones which are an indicator of areas that have been subjected to hydrothermal activity.
