VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 07, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Hawkmoon Resources Corp. (CSE:HM; OTCQB:HWKRF; FSE:966) ("Hawkmoon" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that Mr. Thomas Clarke, VP of Exploration, is now at the Wilson Gold Property (the "Property") to supervise the commencement of the trenching program (the "Trenching") at the Property. The Trenching is proposed to examine a series of targets of interest in underexplored areas of the Property. Gold showings on the Property are present at the interface of volcanic rocks and a gabbro sill. These rocks have been folded into a large structure with both the Toussaint and Midrim gold showings situated on the southern limb of this fold structure as shown in figure 1.

The Trenching will focus primarily on the northern limb of the fold structure as well as at other targets on the Property. As little work has been done on the northern limb, it is much more cost effective, at this stage, to trench and clear the surface cover as a first phase of exploration work. Refer to figure 2 for a map showing the various Trenching targets on the northern limb of the fold on Wilson.
Hawkmoon will commence the Trenching by trying to locate the old drill collar of VP 94-51 and working outwards from this known starting point. Two near surface gold intercepts in this old hole identified a gold zone as outlined by table 1 that Hawkmoon plans to attempt to map along strike. Hole VP 94-51 was drilled before the introduction of NI 43-101 and the results are treated as historical.

After examining this old hole, Hawkmoon plans on targeting following zones at sections spaced approximately 50 metres:
Northern limit of the gold zone identified in historical drill hole VP 94-51
Southern limit of the gold zone identified in historical drill hole VP 94-51
IP anomalies with a moderate metallic factor (chargeability and resistivity) from an IP survey completed in 2011 by Viking Gold.
Hawkmoon anticipates commencing drilling on Wilson in the middle of July. The Company has contracted Faubert & Fils Inc for diamond drilling services. The Company used Faubert & Fils Inc. for each of its previous drill programs at the Property and at the Lava Project near Belleterre, Québec.
Branden Haynes, President of Hawkmoon, states "July is the start of our summer work season, and the Company is looking forward to positive results. The objective of the Trenching Program is to extend a historical gold zone, aiming to dig around the contact between the volcanics and gabbro and examine a series of IP anomalies with a favourable signature."
