Orefinders announces 5000M Phase 2 Drilling Program at its Knight Gold Project

Sep 23, 2021

Orefinders Resources Inc. has announced the start of the 5,000 metre Phase 2 drilling program at its Knight Gold Project, located within the Shining Tree district of the southern Abitibi Greenstone belt, about 100 kilometres southwest of Kirkland Lake. Drilling is expected to begin during the first week of October, 2021.

Phase 2 drilling will be focused on two exploration target zones, the Tyranite Zone which includes the past producing Tyranite gold mine and the Duggan Zone, both of which returned promising results from the Phase 1 drilling program. Drill targets for Phase 2 are identified using a combination of geological and assay data generated during Phase 1 drilling; geostatistical analysis of gold distribution in the drill hole database for the Tyranite and Duggan zones; and structural interpretations based on constrained 3-D inversion modeling of high-resolution aeromagnetic data (see News Release dated August 31, 2021).

Phase 2 will kick off at the Tyranite Zone where drilling will be focused on testing an interpreted moderately plunging trend to mineralization along the Tyranite shear structure, below and to the south of historical mine workings. The definition of drill targets at the Duggan Zone is ongoing and is expected to include step out drilling along strike of known mineralization.

Phase 1 Drilling : Details and Results 

The Phase 1 drilling program at the Knight Gold Project included 26 drill holes representing 11,204 metres, that were completed between September, 2020 and April, 2021. Details of the Phase 1 program and results are reported in News Releases dated November 5, 2020; and January 29, February 11, May 10 and July 26 in 2021.
