Vancouver, B.C. – November 8th, 2022 – Opawica Explorations Inc. (TSXV: OPW) (FSE: A2PEAD) (OTC: OPWEF) (the “Company” or “Opawica”) is pleased to announce it has completed a 3D induced Polarization Survey over the eastern site of the Bazooka Property in the Abitibi in Quebec.
The Company had Abitibi Geophysics undertake a DasVision 3D Induced Polarization (“IP”) over an area of 400x400m of the Bazooka property. The IP survey covered the main zone alteration where mineralization was up to 15m wide in quartz carbonate stock work. The objective of the IP survey was to identify the lateral and vertical extension of known hydrothermal and mineralization zones. The follow up program also consisted of downhole geophysics (to better define upcoming drill targets) in and around known current and historical gold mineralization in the vicinity of the Bazooka.
The survey was conducted with 40 Full-Waver dual dipole receivers distributed over an approximate 50 m x 75 m mesh. A dipole length of 25m was used and two blocks of 40 receivers were required to cover the area of interest. Current was injected within and around each mesh of the receivers, and in several of the 2022 diamond drill holes. Current was also injected in two long dipoles (about 2km in length), diagonally across each block of receivers. The depth of investigation is estimated to be about 300 metres.
Of the forty-eight drill targets identified to date, only eighteen have been tested. The forty-eight drill targets were developed in conjunction with Goldspot. Goldspot used integrated and reinterpreted data sets (geochemical, geophysical, geological). Drill targets that were drilled in 2022 were derived from an understanding gained from Goldspot based on their analysis. Structural interpretations and 3-D modelling were provided by Goldspot and led to the development of an updated geological model which includes but is not limited to fold events, numerous lithostratigraphic units, as well as faults.
Blake Morgan, President of Opawica stated, “The implementation of the new 3D IP will redefine our drill targets. The remaining thirty drill targets, developed by GoldSpot, have yet to be evaluated and could represent significant upside for our shareholders. The team at Opawica are thrilled to be narrowing in on our high priority drill targets, ready for a phase two drill program.
