Opawica Completes Gold Grains in Till Sampling on Newfoundland Projects
Vancouver, B.C. - TheNewswire – October 19th, 2021 - Opawica Explorations Inc. (TSXV:OPW) (FSE:A2PEAD) (OTC:OPWEF) (the “Company” or “Opawica”) is pleased to announce its crew has completed Gold Grains in Till Sampling and prospecting program on all its Newfoundland projects; Chapel Island, Density, Eclipse, Mass, and Little d’Espoir Lake Property
Blake Morgan, chief executive officer of Opawica stated, “I like what our team has done by chasing up gold grains in remote untested areas. When the results come in, I am confident that the team will have discovered new areas with gold grains in till.”
The Company collected a total of 121 regional gold in grain till samples on all its Newfoundland Properties. The program was designed by Opawica to sample untested areas and augment the understanding of gold grain distribution in the region. The Company engaged the services of a helicopter to access areas of the properties which were previously inaccessible and permitted field crews to sample difficult to reach areas.
At each sample site, one 2-5 kg till sample was collected for gold grain analysis. At the same location soil samples were also taken. During the program, 12 rocks samples were also collected and submitted for assay.
The 121 till samples have been submitted for gold grain analysis at Overburden Drilling Management (“ODM”) in Ottawa. ODM specializes in heavy minerals extraction and gold grain analysis. All soil and rock samples were shipped to Activation Laboratories Ltd. in Ancaster, Ontario for analysis. Activation Laboratories Ltd. is ISO/IEC 17025 accredited by the Standards Council of Canada.
The wholly owned Opawica 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, which is a northeast-trending structural zone extending across Newfoundland.
