Toronto, Ontario, May 25, 2017 – Nighthawk Gold Corp. (“Nighthawk” or the “Company”) (TSX: NHK) is pleased to confirm that its common shares will commence trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange (“TSX”) on Monday, May 29, 2017, and the common shares will be delisted from the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”) at such time. The Company will continue to trade under the ticker symbol “NHK” on the TSX.
Nighthawk’s President and Chief Executive Officer Dr. Michael Byron said: “The Nighthawk story has come a long way from its humble beginnings in 2008 and our move to the TSX signals a pivotal moment in our evolution. We initiated our 2017 drill program in March, consisting of a minimum of 25,000 metres of drilling (focussed on growing and further delineating the high-grade potential at Colomac). We expect to release our first set of drill results shortly. As well, 2017 is slated to be our most extensive regional exploration campaign to-date. Activities will include geological mapping, ground geophysics, and prospecting, focused on developing new drill targets on some of our prioritized prospects as well as identifying new regional opportunities, all geared towards unlocking the future value of this district scale opportunity.
We are committed to delivering on the prospective nature of the Indin Lake gold camp, an archetypal Archean gold camp which simply has not seen the scale of exploration effort over the past 100 years as have similar Archean gold camps such as the Timmins camp. Nighthawk controls 90% of the Indin Lake camp, giving us the room to explore all of our targets freely and unencumbered. We look forward to updating our shareholders on our continued success as we move forward in our evolution.”
Nighthawk is a Canadian-based gold exploration company with 100% ownership of a district scale land position within the Indin Lake Greenstone Belt, located approximately 200 kilometres north of Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada.
