The step out holes they are drilling can be for only one logical reason IMHO for PP and further advancement of drilling.  I suspect the logical reason is to take the current underground production estimates from 25,000 t per day towards somewhere like 35,000t - 55,000t per day range which would be bea significant underground daily production increase. Curious about the significance of the research paper filed at Univ. of British Columbia Mining & Metallurgy Dept. re a significant study by world expert(s) re associated minerals with specific copper systems. Reasons listed further below in part IIfor holding and buying more RDK are intact. Could that be the sriver for new drilling? Do your own DD work starting with below. Last couple of news releases and below Part II discussion as well as Research Rpt Brief below in part III. Whose who of stock buyers-sellers in Part IV shows accumulation by confident parties somewhere.

I/ Good news on Macro Cu front contines as well
.
  • Cu imports by China, reversed the fall in August and jumped 18 % in September, as importers boosted orders ahead of a seasonal pickup. Imports of anode, refined Cu, alloy and semi-finished Cu products reached 457,847 t in September, the highest since March 2012 and up 16 % from a year ago. Total imports of Cu in Q313, rose 21.4 % over Q213 to 1.256 M t and in 9M13 were down 10% to 3,258,283 t.
  •  
    • China imported a record 74.58 M t of iron ore in September--up 8 % from August and an increase of 15 % on an annual basis, customs data showed. Imports were driven by robust steel production, with daily runs above 2.14 M t in the first 20 days of September, versus August's daily figure of 2.13 M t.

II/  Trading volumes and Reasons for Cu Investors to consider RDK
As you'll see below and further below in Part IV specifying who buyers and sellers are, we've watched14,437,532 shs trade hands since mid April and potentialy 12 M shs in a PP  re new buying includin ginsiders for totalof 26 M whic is a lot. And CIBC is still in the background as RDK's Corp Advisor.

Oct to Date  volume    725,306
Sep monthly volume 4,056,080
Aug monthly volume 3,551,728
July monthly volume 2,059,733
June monthy volume 1,238,693
May monthly volume 1,615,383
April monthly volume 2,403,754

Why maintain patience on RDK and yes dollar cost average on higher priced earlier purchases.

-A little homework on Copper Alley USA and  you just might see that it is North America's Cu hot-bead hence continued optimism of stock buyers from $0.50 to present price levels.
-Why maintain patience for RDK to unfold? For starters there's location, infrastructure. their high profile industry personnel vs. other advanced explorers or junior producers. RDK has engineers, mine planners, mine operators, geologists, geo-seismic personnel, assorted specialists  involved on their Executive, Advisory Committee, & Board of Directors.
 
Arizona offers geo political benefits, a favorable steady tax regime, detailed infrastructure benefits (road, power, water, rail, milling, smelters, close by towns, close by mines, operating and mothballed with lots of equipment new and old just hours away.) 

There is a mobile skilled work force chomping at the bit for Copper Creek to get up and running backed by AZ's mining friendly state govt who know what side their bread is to be buttered on. 

Having the overall majority blessing of local municipal, county and state politicians  who recognize the importance of higher paying skilled jobs and a product good for the state's GDP is a rarity in this "NIMBY" day and age.
 
Arizona is a  very attractive place for management, employees and their families to work in a stable, safe environment. Let's see Arizona over Mongolia, Indonesia, DRC Congo, Ecuador, Peru, Chile,  Argentina , Khuzestan, Kyrgyzstan, Madagascar, Rwanda, Pakistan, Zambia, for  security, schooling, water, food, accommodation, internet and satellite access for the workers and families, Indeed a stable socio-economic-political environment to raise their families in while working on a project....just take a look at how various 'exotic locations" have been working out of late for new or recent projects yet to come online, recently brought online, let alone offline be it by Barrick, Newmont, BHP, Glencore, RIO TINTO whomever.

Redhawk Resources, Inc. (TSX: RDK) <
http://redhawkresources.com/Home/> (OTCQX: RHWKF)
Current Price: CAD $0.29/ U.S. $0.28

 
Redhawk Resources, Inc. ("RDK" or "the Company") is a Canadian-based resource exploration and development company with a primary focus on the accelerated development of its advanced stage Copper Creek copper-molybdenum project in San Manuel, Arizona. With over 675K feet of drilling completed to date, the large high grade Copper/Moly Porphyry style system now contains over 3.5B lbs. of Copper, 66M lbs. of Moly and 11M oz. of Silver. Located in the prolific Southwest Porphyry Copper Belt, Redhawk has emerged as one of the top development companies in North America. With the exceptional experience and strength of Redhawk's management team, combined with the developed infrastructure, Redhawk may be positioned to become a mid-tier copper producer.
 
RDK announced the results of a Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) June 25, 2013 using independent consultants Milne and Associates, Call & Nicholas, Inc., Golder Associates, SGS METCON/ KD Engineering, Westland Resources, and Independent Mining Consultants (IMC).
 
PEA Highlights:
 
         Pre-tax NPV of US$488 million at 7.5% Discount Rateand US$794 million at 5% Discount      Rate and 16% IRR at US$3.30 copper over 18 year life of mine
         Average total operating cash cost of US$1.74 per pound copper net of byproduct credits
·         Average annual production of 121.7 million pounds of salable copper (55,200 metric tons)
·         Production rate of 25,000 short tons per day mining and milling
·         Milling produces 30% copper concentrate and a separate molybdenum concentrate
·         92% copper recovery in flotation mill


The PEA uses a mining and milling rate of 25,000 short tons per day (tpd). Mining is by room and pillar/post pillar with backfilling method in the porphyry deposit and results in approximately 75% recovery of the resource. Mining of the near surface breccia deposits is by cut and fill or blasthole stoping and fill with very high recovery of the resource. A small open pit may be used to mine the Old Reliable breccia, but is not considered in the current PEA. Milling is by standard flotation and produces a copper concentrate and a molybdenum concentrate with 92% copper recovery and 30% copper concentrate grades. All dollar figures are in $US. The resource used in the PEA is the NI 43-101 compliant resource reported December 20, 2012.
 

R. Joe Sandberg, President and CEO of Redhawk, commented; "The results of the 2013 PEA confirm the economic potential of the Copper Creek Project and a successful growth in project scale from a 10,000 tpd operation in the 2009-2010 NI 43-101 Scoping Study to the 25,000 tpd operation in the current NI 43-101 PEA. Management believes there are several aspects of the PEA that can be further optimized based upon additional work. In addition, the drilling in 2010-2012 and the ongoing geologic work in the district suggests the potential for significant expansion of the existing resources and identification of several very large untested porphyry targets on the Redhawk controlled lands. The Company will announce these resource expansion plans and further development plans in separate news releases."

 
The Company has two wholly-owned subsidiaries, Redhawk Copper Inc. and Redhawk Resources (USA), Inc.  Redhawk Copper Inc. holds title to the Copper Creek Project and Redhawk Resources (USA), Inc. holds no assets. RDK's Copper Creek Project consists of approximately thirty-five square miles of 100% controlled, contiguous patented and unpatented mining claims, state prospecting permits and ASLD Mineral Exploration Permits located approximately 70 miles northeast of Tucson, Arizona and 15 miles east of San Manuel. All of the mineral titles are held by the Company's wholly-owned subsidiary, Redhawk Copper, Inc. ("Redhawk Copper").
 

Arizona based Copper Creek has been intermittently explored since the early 1880's and small-scale production occurred on site from 1913-1919. The property has been held and explored by a handful of companies since its discovery, including Calumet & Arizona Mining Company, Phelps Dodge, Arizona Molybdenum, Bear Creek Mining, Newmont Exploration Ltd, Occidental Minerals, and Magma. Redhawk purchased the property out of receivership in 2005 and began collecting and aggregating all available historical data and drill core at the property. The Company also worked to consolidate property holdings in the district to build its initial seven square mile project zone. Over the past two years, Redhawk has purchased more land rights to an additional 28 sq. miles to the northwest and southwest of the main zone. From 2007-2010, the Company engaged in extensive exploration drilling through the property to define a select group of breccia and porphyry structures.


To date, over 675,000 feet of drilling has been completed on the property. Results of new and historic drilling were the basis of the 2010 resource and scoping study. After the initial study, Redhawk continued to drill out the property and has since identified additional resources, particularly in the porphyry zones. The Copper Creek Project hosts multiple breccia and porphyry copper deposits. Both deposit types include historical copper resources.  Molybdenum is present in varying amounts in both the breccia and porphyry copper deposits and is expected to provide substantial credits to both deposit types.  Gold and silver are also present in both deposit types and are expected to provide credits during mining.
 
On July 9th, the Company announced that Jack H. L. Miller has agreed to join the Company's Technical Advisory Board. Mr. Miller holds a B.A.Sc. and a M.A.Sc. in geological engineering and is a registered professional engineer. Mr. Miller has held various site operating and head office leadership roles in multiple base and precious metal operating companies. In these roles, Mr. Miller has been responsible for the entire mine development cycle; starting from exploration, through development and finally to operations. His most recent role, prior to retirement in 2010, was Chief Operating Officer for Quadra FNX Mining Ltd.
