Sunvest Minerals is set to commence drilling at the McKinnon-Hawkins Gold Project located in Hawkins and Walls townships, Ontario, Canada in the coming week.

The McKinnon – Hawkins project represents an advanced exploration gold project for the Company, with a maiden 43-101 resource estimate of 239,100 ounces of gold (4,957,000 tonnes at 1.50 grams per tonne gold (g/t Au), at a cut-off grade of 0.5 g/t Au), with excellent potential to grow resources and discover new zones of gold mineralization.
