The final three holes of the program are reported to be in progress.

Hawkstone Managing Director Paul Lloyd commented on the results released on 23 July 2019 "Hawkstone's Big Sandy project has continually delivered exceptional results as the Company has successfully progressed through the 37-holediamond drill program. High grade intercepts have continued, and the assay results from these latest 4 diamond drill holes further demonstrate the significant potential of the Big Sandy project. The Hawkstone board looks forward to updating the market regarding assay results from the final 3 diamond drill holes before progressing to its maiden JORC Resource in late September 2019."

Thor holds 7,421,875 ordinary shares in Hawkstone (representing 1.075% of its issued share capital).
