Bottom Brook Rare Earth Elements (REE) 2023 Sampling Program

Diamond drilling at the 100%-owned Bottom Brook Rare Earth Elements (“REE”) (“Bottom Brook”) project in Newfoundland was concluded in early December 2023. A total of 1,701 metres of drilling was completed over 10 drill hole locations.

The drill program aimed to test the depth and strike extent of the high-grade mineralization identified by the Company’s spring/summer 2023 trenching, geological mapping, and channel sampling program.

The 2024 York Harbour Metals geological team has recently completed a review and re-examination of the Bottom Brook REE diamond drill program data and drill core. The review determined that additional sampling was warranted, resulting in an extra 120 samples being identified and cut from the drill core, in addition to the 447 previously cut core samples. Samples have been sent to Actlabs for REE-Niobium-Zirconium-Yttrium-Tantalum-Uranium-Thorium-Beryllium-Phosphate-Tin Assay ICP-OES and ICP-MS package. Assays are pending.

The team has compiled, digitized, and re-modelled the historical and recent project data collected to date.
