Welcome To Opawica Explorations Inc.

Opawica Explorations Inc. (TSX.V: OPW) is a junior exploration company actively engaged in the acquisition, exploration and development of mineral resource properties. 

The Company’s current exploration efforts are concentrated on its 100% owned Dingman Gold Project near Madoc, Ontario, which is situated about one and a half hour drive east-northeast from the Greater Toronto Area, and its 100% owned Maybrun-Atikwa Lake Copper–Gold Project located about 120 kilometres southeast of Kenora, Ontario.  The Company commissioned Golder Associates Ltd. (“Golder”) to prepare NI 43-101 reports on the Dingman and Atikwa Lake properties that include modeling of the mineralization associated with the deposits as well as independent resource calculations, which reports were completed in March 2009. On August 31, 2009, the Company filed new updated NI 43-101 reports by Robert Laakso, P.Eng, including new resource estimates on both properties. All NI 43-101 reports have been filed on SEDAR and can be found be clicking the links below.

Atikwa Lake

    As at July 16, 2009, Opawica announced updated resources were derived from a database containing a further 3,617 m of drilling which is in addition to the 18,895m of drilling from 105 past holes used in resource estimates outlined in the SEDAR filed March 25, 2009 Atikwa Lake NI 43-101 report completed by Golder Associates Ltd. as so commissioned by the Company.

    A total of 16 holes were recently drilled focusing on connecting the Maybrun Main Zone (“MMZ”) to the Maybrun Footwall Zone (“MFW”) as well as testing portions of the 600m gap that separates the Maybrun Main zones from the Maybrun North Zone (“MNZ”).

    The updated resources are part of an open pit resource model extending from surface to up to 200m in vertical depth and using a 2:1 stripping ratio for the model. Mineralization remains primarily open to depth. Other exploration targets also exist on the property separate from the Maybrun gold-copper zones.

    The current resource estimates at Atikwa Lake in the recently SEDAR filed August 31, 2009 Atikwa Lake NI 43-101 report by Robert Laakso, P.Eng ("QP") are updated as follows:

    Note: Tonnes, pounds and ounces are rounded to the nearest 1,000.

    The result of the updated mineral resources is an increase in the Inferred resource category only. The Indicated resources as detailed above have not changed from previous resource estimates. Compared to previous NI 43-101 resource estimates of March 25, 2009, total contained gold has increased by 26% and contained copper has increased by 28%.

Dingman

    As at July 16, 2009, Opawica announced updated resources at Dingman were derived from a database containing a further 3,926m of drilling which is in addition to the past 72 holes that make up the resource estimates outlined in the SEDAR filed March 25, 2009 Dingman NI 43-101 report completed by Golder Associates Ltd. and Robert (Bob) Laakso, P.Eng. as commissioned by the Company.

    A total of 16 holes were drilled subsequent to original independent resource calculations detailed in the Company’s February 10, 2009 news release.

    The current resource estimates at Dingman in the recently SEDAR filed August 31, 2009 Dingman NI 43-101 report by Robert Laakso, P.Eng ("QP") are updated as follows:


Classification Cut-off Grade Au (g/t) Tonnes Au (g/t) Au (oz)

Note: Tonnes and ounces are rounded to the nearest 1,000.

The result of the above updated mineral resources is an increase in the Inferred resource category only. The Indicated resources as detailed above have not changed from previous resource estimates. Compared to previous NI 43-101 resource estimate of March 25, 2009, total contained gold has increased by 52%.

All assaying for the Dingman and Atikwa Lake properties was carried out by Swastika Laboratories of Kirkland Lake, Ontario.
