Orefinders Updates on Power Ore’s Drill Results in Chibougamau: 1.41% Copper Eq. over 58.1 Metres in Shallow Mineralization

June 17, 2019

Toronto, Ontario – June 17, 2019 – Orefinders Resources Inc. (“Orefinders” or the “Company”) (TSX.V: ORX) is please to announce that Power Ore (TSX.V:PORE), of which  Orefinders owns 5,059,752 shares, intersected 1.41% copper equivalent over 58.1 metres confirming shallow high grade disseminated copper mineralization at Opemiska Copper Mine Complex in the Chibougamau District of Quebec.

Notable intersections include:

  • 1.41% copper equivalent over 58.1 metres starting at 49.9 metres down hole including 5.9% copper equivalent over 8.5 metres in hole OPM-19-02
  • 0.72% copper equivalent over 23.6 metres starting at 51 metres down hole including 1.47% copper equivalent over 7.1 metres in hole OPM-19-01 (Twinned Hole of Historical Falconbridge Hole S-807)
  • 0.24% copper equivalent over 79 metres starting at 33 metres down hole including 0.51% copper equivalent over 25.7 metres in hole OPM-19-03 (at the rhyolite contact, previously thought to be unmineralized)

*Copper Equivalent (“Cu Eq.”) grade including copper, gold, silver, cobalt and zinc based on 100% recoveries is calculated using the following equation: Cu Eq. = [(Cu % x 20 x Cu price) + (Au grade / 34.2857 x Au price) + (Ag grade / 34.2857 x Ag price) + (Co % x 20 x Co price) + (Zn % x 20 x Zn price)] / (20 x Cu price). We used Cu, Au, Ag, Co and Zn price of US$2.65, US$1,325 and US$14.75, US$15.00 and US$1.15 respectively. 

Full details are available in Power Ore’s June 14, 2019 news release. 

“This first batch of assay results from Opemiska’s Spring 2019 Drill Program highlights the potential of the project to host a near surface resource based on a combination of remaining high grade vein type mineralization and the surrounding disseminated mineralization above a nominal cut-off grade of 0.5% Cu-Eq”, said Stephen Stewart, CEO and Director of both companies. “This shows that we were justified in pursuing this opportunity for Power Ore and we are happy that Orefinders, which is focused on gold in Kirkland Lake, has a participation in Power Ore, a Chibougamau copper-focused company.  We look forward to the remaining results from the drill program in the coming weeks,” added Mr. Stewart.
