Vancouver, B.C. – November 30th, 2021 – Opawica Explorations Inc. (TSXV: OPW) (FSE: A2PEAD) (OTCQB: OPWEF) (the “Company” or “Opawica”) announces that further to the Company’s news release of November 24th, 2021, the Company has engaged the services of a Forage DCB Drilling of Rouyn-Noranda to undertake a minimum of 3,000 meters of drilling on the Bazooka Property.
Blake Morgan, Chief Executive Officer of Opawica stated, “The team at Opawica is thrilled to begin drilling on the Bazooka Property. Historically the Bazooka Property has hosted some exciting gold grades and we are looking forward to expanding on that.”
Significant gold mineralization has been established on the Bazooka property from near surface to approximately 250 metres vertical depth during past drill programs completed on the property by previous owners. In 1944, Siscoe intersected an interval of 5.79 metres of 77.18 g/t Au (true width unknown); with historical drill intercepts ranging from narrow and intermittent anomalous gold. In 1981, Soquem reported values of up to 7.50 metres of 25.77 g/t Au; and in 2003 Lake Shore Gold Corp. intercepted 1.25 metres of 94.11 g/t Au; and RT Minerals Corp. intersected values of up to 17 metres of core length at 7.86 g/t Au, including 7.20 metres of 16.77 g/t Au. These recent intervals are estimated at approximately 85% to 93% true widths. This gold mineralization is known to exist within 50 metres on strike to the gold mineralization on the Yorbeau property and for a current strike length on Opawica’s Bazooka property and optioned Bazooka property for approximately seven kilometres.
Opawica’s drill program is designed to test the depth extension of the mineralized zone of the underground works. In 1951-52, Eldona Gold Mine sank a shaft of 125 m and at level -114 m and 634 m of drifts were developed and reached the fold nose feature of the Cadillac Larder Lake Break (“CLLB”). Four mineralized gold zones were outlined as follows: “Average of back panel samples grading 0.31 oz over 15.0 feet, average of back panel samples grading 0.55 oz over 3.5 feet by 69 feet long, average of back panel samples grading 0.06 oz over 5.3 feet by 60 feet long and channel samples grading 0.21 oz (over a drift section of 10 feet)”, (extract from technical report filed on Sedar on April 28, 2016).
