HAWKEYE also wishes to provide our shareholders and investment community with an update subsequent to a previously announced news release dated July 29, 2016 (news release No. 253 - 2016), whereby the Company disclosed it is actively sourcing cash flowing mining opportunities focused upon gold and silver within North America. HAWKEYE has narrowed its choice of property opportunities down to three which are all located in Mexico and provide the Company with blue sky upside. These gold, silver projects have infrastructure in place including milling facilities providing HAWKEYE the opportunity to be in production within months of closing a Joint Venture (JV).
