VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA – November 18, 2021 – Secova Metals Corp. (“Secova” or the “Company”) (CSE: SEK, USA: SEKZF) is pleased to announce that it has mobilized a Québec based drill contractor to commence additional overburden drilling at its 100% owned Eagle River Project 130 kms east of Lebel-sur-Quévillon in the Province of Quebec. The limited program is intended provide a preliminary characterization of the property overburden and test basal till for potentially gold anomalism.
The Company has previously completed property wide surface geochemical sampling and prospecting over favourable areas where known favourable greenstone and ultramafic rocks have been regionally identified. An airborne VTEM was completed in 2017 and several geophysical anomalies were identified. On November 16, 2021, the Company announced it had acquired 10 additional claims in the northeast and east of the property where additional favourable greenstone and ultramafic rocks were identified. These areas remain untested and further exploration is warranted.
The Eagle River project is located south of Osisko Mining’s Windfall Lake project and is adjacent to Bonterra Resources Inc.’s Gladiator project in the Urban-Berry area of Quebec (see Figure 1).

“Secova Metals Corp is delighted to recommence work on the Eagle River Property after a hiatus of exploration since 2018. We are equally delighted to reengage with our technical team from Longford Exploration Services to commence a more systematic exploration and basal till sampling across the newly acquired claims in the northeast and east of the property”, stated Brad Kitchen, C.E.O. of Secova Metals Inc.
Fall 2021 Work Program
The proposed drill program (see Figure 2) is expected to include approximately 20 shallow drill holes to characterize the extent of overburden sand deposits and test the basal till layer that has been variably identified across the eastern part of the property. An initial orientation traverse of shallow drilling is to be carried out across areas of thick overburden deposits that obscure favourable greenstone and ultramafic rocks adjacent to previously identified geophysical anomalies.

Contingent upon the success of the basal till drilling program additional diamond drilling is proposed to provide further orientation information on outcropping Greenstone and Ultramafic bedrock geology located toward the east of the property. Additional prospecting over the new claim acquired in 2021 is also proposed to identify any favourable outcrops and potential mineralization along the identified greenstone and ultramafic rocks.
