Within the Indin Lake Gold Property, Nighthawk has identified a number of highly prospective targets that have been previously drilled and require follow up work (see map below). It has the same characteristics as does any productive high-profile Archean gold camp, with an abundance of high-grade showings and deposits with widespread mineralization in a range of styles that are largely hosted in brittle regimes. In 2018, just over fifty-percent of drilling was directed at some of our more prospective regional targets including the four Leta Arm gold deposits, Treasure Island, Damoti Lake and Swamp. In 2017, with an expanded budget and exploration program, the Company conducted extensive regional work which included mapping, geophysics, and prospecting (including surface sampling programs) which yielded exciting results and new discoveries. Nighthawk conducted a similar level of regional exploration work in 2018 and looking ahead to the 2019 campaign, the Company intends to build upon its previous successes and expand geological mapping, prospecting, and drilling programs to continue to advance some of the other key prospects to drill ready status.
