Vancouver, B.C. – September 7, 2021 – Opawica Explorations Inc. (TSX:OPW) (FSE:A2PEAD) (OTC:OPWEF) (the “Company” or “Opawica”) is pleased to announce it is mobilizing a crew to undertake a Gold Grain In Till Sampling program on all its Newfoundland projects; Chapel Island, Density, Eclipse, Mass, and Lil d’Espoir Lake claims.
Blake Morgan, chief executive officer of Opawica stated, “I am very pleased to be providing this update on our Newfoundland gold projects. We anticipate an extremely busy next few months for our Opawica exploration team and are excited to continue this momentum through to our drill campaign and beyond”.
The Company’s inaugural gold grain in till sampling program is an important step to determine the number of gold grains in the glacial till in order to help locate the potential source of gold on the properties. Previous work has identified areas where gold grains in till are associated with the Valentine Lake Sear Zone and the Red Indian Line shear zones which are projected to cross Opawica’s claims.
The Opawica 100% owned project areas cover more than 217 square kilometres along and between the Red Indian Line and the Valentine Lake shear zone in the Central gold belt of Newfoundland. The Company’s prospective holdings extend for more than 50 km along the Central gold belt, a northeast-trending structural zone extending across Newfoundland.
Newfoundland has long been known to have many gold occurrences with relatively little modern exploration. Historical production from the Hope Brook, Nugget Pond and Point Rousse projects have been typical of the province’s mines with relatively modest production from high-grade deposits.
