TORONTO, April 8, 2021 /CNW/ – Orford Mining Company (“Orford”) (TSXV: ORM) is happy to offer an replace on actions at its Qiqavik property. The Qiqavik property is an rising camp positioned within the Northern Group of the Cape smith belt in Northern Quebec. Qiqavik covers over 390km2 of Proterozoic greenstone belt and hosts a number of giant constructions. Lower than 5 months of area work on the bottom to-date has resulted within the discovery of a large number of high-grade seize samples as much as 648 g/t Au (Determine 1). In 2019 drilling, Orford was profitable in intersecting gold mineralization in all six drill holes concentrating on three totally different geological constructions on the property separated by as much as 18 km (see Orford information launch of October 16, 2019, Determine 2)
David Christie, President and CEO of Orford, commented, “The strike-extensive and thick IP Lake Shear Hall seems to be the supply for 3 excessive grade gold boulder trains and gold-in-till dispersion trains. We’re excited to get again on the bottom at Qiqavik in July and start our 2021 exploration program, targeted on the potential IP Lake Shear Hall”.
A key discovery of the final area program in 2019 was the definition of the IP lake shear hall (IPLS) within the south-central portion of the property (Determine 2,3). The IPLS has been traced at floor for over 7 km (open to the East and West) and varies in its floor thickness expression from 125 to 375m. The shear is hosted by volcanic and volcanic metasedimentary rocks and is flanked to the south in a number of the extra westerly parts by an iron formation, or probably a number of iron formations which themselves are variably gold mineralized and silicified. Three excessive grade boulder trains happen north of the IPLS (Determine 3). In 2019,153 until samples had been collected across the IPLS to assist in figuring out the potential supply of the excessive grade boulder trains. Until samples had been despatched to IOS Geoscientific for gold grain counting (ARTGoldTM).
Normalized gold grain depend (to 10kg) outcomes present clusters of until samples with greater than 100 grains (Determine 3). These outcomes embody the very best counts acquired up to now on the Qiqavik property and are par with what’s noticed down ice from different producing districts1 the place related until counting strategies has aided in discovering gold mines. Given the ice transport course towards the north-northeast, the shut affiliation of those anomalies with the IPLS and secondary cross-structures present compelling vectors for concentrating on additional exploration on the southern finish of IPLS.

Exploration area work in early July might be targeted on defining a cut-off to the southern finish of the high-count gold-in-till dispersion trains recognized simply north of the IPLS. An extra 200 until samples are deliberate alongside and to the south of the 7 km IPLS hall and a further 150 until samples might be collected alongside the westerly and easterly extension of the IPLS. Until knowledge might be used at the side of a deliberate airborne electromagnetic and magnetic survey of the IPLS together with prospecting and mapping to outline drill targets for 1,500 metres of drilling in August 2021.
About Orford Mining Company
Orford Mining is a gold explorer targeted on extremely potential and underexplored areas of Northern Quebec.
Orford’s belongings within the Nunavik area of Northern Quebec embody the Qiqavik and West Raglan initiatives comprising a land bundle totaling over 105,000 hectares within the Cape Smith Belt of Northern Quebec. The Qiqavik Venture hosts a number of new high-grade gold discoveries alongside a mineralized pattern in extra of 40 km. The West Raglan mission hosts a lot of high-grade Raglan-style nickel/copper/platinum group steel discoveries alongside a 55 km mineralized pattern. In January 2021, Orford entered into an earn-in settlement whereby Wyloo Metals can earn as much as 80% of the West Raglan Venture for whole expenditures of $25.0 million over 7 years.
In 2020, Orford acquired three new property positions (Over 20,000ha) within the Joutel area of the Abitibi district of northern Quebec, which hosts historic deposits such because the Eagle/Telbel, Joutel Copper, Poirier Copper, and Vezza deposits. This info from neighbouring properties just isn’t essentially indicative of the mineralization on Orford Mining’s properties.
Orford frequently seeks new gold exploration alternatives in North America.
