“After the successful completion of our geophysics program, diamond drilling commenced this past weekend on McFarlane Lake’s West Hawk Lake property,” said Bob Kusins, VP of Geology of McFarlane Lake. “A combination of past drilling on the property and the latest geophysics information have helped to establish our first exploration drill holes. We look forward to the completion of the initial drilling, which is designed to, in part, confirm both prior historical results and geological continuity of the mineralization,” added Bob Kusins.

Drilling on West Hawk Lake will consist of an initial 2,000 metres, followed by an additional 1,000 metres to further test prospective areas. Preliminary results from drilling are expected to be available by the end of the first quarter of 2022.

Over the last 10 weeks the McFarlane Lake team has accomplished some significant milestones. McFarlane Lake closed its $6.2 Million RTO financing, commenced public trading of its shares on the NEO exchange, completed its geophysics program at site and this weekend commenced diamond drilling. “We have achieved a lot in a short time and look forward to building on these efforts with full engagement of our plans with local community members,” added Mark Trevisiol, President and Chief Executive Officer of McFarlane Lake.
