Hawkmoon Resources Corp. of Vancouver has appointed Dr. Olga Ankindinova as a director and engaged her as a project geologist and technical advisor.

Dr. Ankindinova (above) holds a bachelor’s degree in Geology and a master’s degree in Marine Geology with an emphasis on stream sediment transport and accumulation. Her Ph.D. project at Memorial University of Newfoundland was focused on High-Resolution Sequence Stratigraphy of the world’s largest anoxic basin and involved work with geological, geochemical, and geophysical datasets. Her work was published in various journals, including Marine Geology and Paleo3 and was presented at national and international conferences.

Dr. Ankindinova has worked on several projects, including as a specialist in sedimentation in different depositional environments. She previously worked with Husky Energy Inc. in St. John’s, in the Development Team (Offshore Newfoundland), focusing on development optimization and well planning.

The Barriere project consists of 32.5 square kilometres of mineral claims located 45 minutes North of the city of Kamloops and 7 km West of North Barriere Lake.

Recent work on the project by SGDS-Hive has confirmed the presence of several of the mineral showings returning values up to 8 g/t silver, 0.4% zinc and 0.5% copper from zones around the Rainbow showing.

The Gilnockie project covers a package of land in southeastern British Columbia that is prospective for sedimentary-hosted copper deposits.

The project lies within the Purcell anticlinorium, a gently north-plunging structure that is cored by Paleoproterozoic sedimentary and minor volcanic rocks of the Purcell Supergroup. Belt-Purcell rocks host a variety of base-metal mineralization styles genetically related to basin evolution and deformation, with principal deposit types including the lead–zinc–silver sedimentary exhalative (SEDEX) mineralization at the Sullivan Mine near Kimberley, BC.

Branden Haynes, CEO of Hawkmoon, states “Hawkmoon has historically focused exclusively on gold exploration in Quebec. In particular, the company found success with its Wilson Gold Project but has since determined that expanding its scope to include other minerals and jurisdictions makes sense at this time. Hawkmoon is excited to work and develop both of these new projects with guidance from Dr. Ankindinova.”
