Orefinders welcomes Columbian neighbours in Gowganda play

Jun 1, 2020

Orefinders Resources Inc. is providing an update on its Knight Project's pending exploration and drill program. In addition to the exploration update, the company would like to update shareholders on the recent and significant acquisition of the Juby project by Caldas Gold Corporation, which is contiguous to the Knight property. Caldas Gold Corporation is 74% owned by Gran Colombia Gold.

"We are pleased to welcome Caldas as our new neighbours to the district and congratulate them on a fantastic strategic acquisition of Juby. We are especially pleased to have Juby owned by a group who appears intent on investing in it and in the Shining Tree district, much like Orefinders is. The Juby is a large gold resource on the highway in Ontario , which has not seen much investment over the last 5 years given its owners were silver focused South American operators," said Stephen Stewart , CEO of Orefinders, who continued, "If it were not for Covid-19, it is likely that Orefinders would be drilling on the Knight project as we speak. However, given the current environment we have chosen to be pragmatic and cautious while remaining eager to begin our fully funded drill program on Knight."

Knight Project Drill Program
Orefinders has outlined three distinct targets on its Knight Gold Project which it plans to drill in 2020. Each target has a distinct geological style and have not been previously drill tested.

The untested drill targets include:

1.    Porphyry Lake IP Anomaly Target

  • Well developed high chargeability, low resistivity anomaly, 250m wide and 300m long and confirmed on 2 additional lines to south. 
  • Possible mineralized porphyry core of gold-rich alteration system. 
  • Large near-surface Induced Polarization (IP) anomaly delineating potential source of mineralization at Porphyry Lake. 
  • Two holes totalling 400m has been earmarked to test this target from shore drilling.

2.    Tyranite Mine

  • Brand new 3D modelling of gold mineralization along the North-South trending Tyranite fault. Tyranite's best intersected grades and widths occur where the fault intersects the East-West trending ultramafic units, and more specifically at the contacts of the ultramafics with other lithologies. 
  • This interpretation of this geologic model has never been drill tested. 
  • Drilling will focus on confirming the geological model and in-filling between historical holes to attain appropriate hole spacings for inferred mineral resource modelling. Depending on level of financing up to 13 holes totalling 3,000 metres may be allocated for this purpose.

3.    More Minto Pipe -like Targets

  • New targets with geophysical and geochemical characteristics similar to the Minto mineralized breccia pipe. The Minto breccia shows up very prominently on the high resolution heliborne magnetic survey reprocessed by Orefinders and we visited three dozen similar targets located within the same stratigraphic unit. Ten targets have been selected for follow up geophysics with induced polarization method. 
  • Up to 3 holes totalling 450m has been reserved subject to favourable results from IP survey.
