Hawkmoon Consolidates 10.5km of Gold-bearing Lavallée Shear Zone in Belleterre Gold Camp, Québec

Hawkmoon Resources Corp. (CSE:HM; FSE:966) (“Hawkmoon” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the Company has expanded its Lava Gold property (the “Lava Property”) to 48 claims covering 2,449 hectares by staking an additional seven mineral claims (the “New Claims”).

The Lava Property is situated approximately 20 kilometres west of Belleterre in the Abitibi-Témiscamingue region of Québec. The property covers the Lavallée 38, 29, 40 and 41 showings which expose multiple quartz veins, breccias and stockworks within the Lavallée Shear Zone (the “LSZ”). This structure, which varies from 0.5 to 3.0 meters wide on the surface, occurs within a northeast-trending magnetic inflection coincident with a strong chargeability anomaly. Shallow drilling on the LSZ in 2007 encountered notable intersections including 2.8 gpt Au, 22.4 gpt Ag over 1.5 m and 2.8 gpt Au, 16.8 gpt Ag over 1.0 m as well as grab samples in trenches of up to 11.0 gpt Au, 4.85 gpt Ag1.

The magnetic inflection hosting the LSZ continues east from the Lava Property to the Belleterre gold mining camp and appears to be the same regional structure that hosts the Belleterre gold deposits. Vior Inc., a junior mining exploration company based in Québec, Canada, has recently consolidated much of the Belleterre camp including the former Belleterre Mine that produced 750,000 oz. Au and 95,000 oz. Ag between 1936 and 1959. The New Claims were staked to cover the southwest and northeast extensions of the LSZ. Hawkmoon has applied for a work permit and is currently modelling previous induced polarization and resistivity data in anticipation of a drill program to commence at the Lava Property in late October.

Branden Haynes, President of Hawkmoon, states, “Hawkmoon is delighted to have staked these key claims, closed the gaps along the LSZ and extended the prospective corridor on the Lava Property to 10.5 un-interrupted kilometres.”
