News of the offering comes after the company recently released a batch of results from Phase 2 drilling that it described as the best intersections of grade and length to date.
Drilling highlights include hole YH21-24, which returned 29 metres of 5.25% copper, 436.5 g/t cobalt, 8.97 g/t silver and 0.801% zinc.
The Phase 2 drilling program included 29 holes covering 4,562 metres that targeted volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) mineralization along a 400-metre strike length within the Main Area near historic underground mine workings.
The company (formerly Pheonix Gold Resources) has said it plans to continue drilling the 11 known mineralized zones and test other new massive sulphide targets, like the No 4 Brook showing, while focusing on gaining access to the 400-level and sea level adits.
The company secured the right and option to acquire a 100% ownership of the York Harbour property under a February, 2021, agreement between York Harbour and WBN Prospecting Group, which consists of Grassroots Prospecting & Prospect Generation Inc.
