TheNewswire November 16 th 2021 - Opawica Explorations Inc. (TSXV:OPW) (FSE:A2PEAD) (OTC:OPWEF) (the "Company" or "Opawica") is pleased to announce crews are being mobilized for the Multi-Parameter Airborne Survey System (M-PASS) over its Bazooka, McWatters, Arrowhead Properties in Rouyn Noranda camp of the Abitibi in Quebec.

Blake Morgan, Chief Executive Officer of Opawica stated, "Perfect timing has enabled Opawica to undertake an airborne survey on all three core Quebec Properties at once. I am looking forward to the results as we move towards our drill program this year."

Bazooka Property

The Bazooka project is contiguous to the southwestern border of Yamana Gold's Wasamac Gold Property which hosts existing proven and probable mineral reserves of 1.8 million ounces of gold at 2.56 grams per tonne. Wasamac has proven 1,028,000 tonnes at 2.66 g/t Au and probable of 20,427,000 tonnes at 2.56 g/t Au (Yamana Gold press release Jan. 21, 2021). *

The Bazooka Property occurs along one of the most prolific auriferous structures in the world, the Cadillac-Larder Lake Break/Fault. The Cadillac-Larder Lake Break/Fault, in part, marks the boundary between the Archean Abitibi sub-province in the north and the predominantly metasedimentary Pontiac sub-province south of the fault.

In 2003, Lake Shore Gold Corporation drilled 1m with 316.13 g/t Au on the Property followed by 2m at 12 g/t Au and 4.5m at 7.9 g/t Au in 2005. A few highlights of the most recent historical drilling on the Property in 2011 by RT Minerals Corp. returned 17m at 7.8 g/t Au and 1.86m at 29.43g/t Au.

Gold mineralization on the Property occurs within mixed, up to 60m wide (estimated true width), strong quartz-carbonate-sericite and talc-chlorite schists of sedimentary and ultramafic to mafic volcanic protoliths, respectively, and is referred to as the Main Zone. The alteration and mineralization are spatially associated with the Cadillac-Larder Lake

Break/Fault zone, which is at the base characterized by up to 2.0m wide (estimated true width), strongly graphitic fault. The graphitic fault generally marks the contact between the sedimentary and ultramafic metavolcanic rocks.

The Main Zone is characterized by strong to intense quartz-carbonate-sericite and talc-chlorite-carbonate+/-quartz alteration, is generally mineralized with trace to 3% pyrite+arsenopyrite+/-chalcopyrite+/- pyrrhotite and locally contains fine specks of free gold in narrow quartz veins/stringers and highly silicified rocks. Patchy to locally pervasive fuchsite alteration (weak to strong) often accompanies the quartz-sericite-carbonate alteration. Quartz-tourmaline veins occur locally both within and adjacent to the Main Zone.

Arrowhead  Property

The Arrowhead property is fully surrounded by Agnico Eagle Mines Ltd., a major gold producer in the Abitibi region.  Previous drill holes on the property intercepted 40 gold-copper mineralized zones enhance the property's potential for four types of mineralization: gold-rich volcanogenic massive sulphide deposits, like at the Bousquet No. 2 and LaRonde mines; VMS deposits, like at the Louvicourt mine; gold-rich polymetallic veins, like at the Doyon and Mouska gold mines; and quartz-carbonate auriferous veins associated with regional east-west-trending faults and shear zones, like at the O'Brien, Kewagama, Central-Cadillac, Wood-Cadillac and Lapa mines.*

Mcwatters Property

The McWatters and Bazooka properties are continuous to the Long Bars zone break, the Yorbeau Rouyn property with a total resource of 705,020 ounces of gold from the Augmitto deposit that has measured and indicated resources of 247,000 tonnes grading 6.08 g/t Au and inferred resources of 633,000 tonnes at 7.79 g/t Au*. The Yorbeau Astoria deposit has measured and indicated resources of 1,429,564 tonnes grading 5.18 g/t Au and inferred resources of 302,597 tonnes at 5.4 g/t Au.*

Copper had a stellar first half of 2021, with prices rallying to their all-time highest level during Q2.

Unlike the first half of 2020, the trend in copper prices was upward for most of the first half of this year, with the red metal hitting an all-time high in May.

Heading into the home stretch of 2021, the market is still robust, and there is plenty of optimism that copper remains in bullish territory. Many analysts and companies expect a boom in the coming years as electrification and electric vehicles grow in popularity and subsequently increase the world’s appetite for the vital base metal.
