Happy Creek Minerals Limited announced that it has added several important new mineral claims and provides additional results from its Hawk copper and gold property BC Canada.
The Hawk property is located approximately 36 kilometers northeast of 100 Mile House, in south central British Columbia, Canada. The Company has 100% interest in approximately 22 square kilometres of mineral claims covering prospective geology and multiple copper, gold and silver mineralized zones in an area approximately 3.5 kilometers by 1.5 kilometers in dimension. Forests on the property are extensively affected by the pine beetle. Logging activity has developed excellent access and several new copper and gold bearing outcrops have been exposed.
During 2011, the Company collected rock samples from the property to determine the presence of platinum group elements. PGE's may occur in trace amounts within alkalic type porphyry deposits and during 2011, the first samples from the Hawk property confirmed the presence of PGE's with significant copper, gold and silver values. Results in the following table are for percent copper and grams per tonne silver, gold, palladium and platinum.
