 Orefinders Resources Inc. (“Orefinders” or the “Company”) (TSXV: ORX) is pleased report the successful completion of its drill program at the Knight Project, in the Shining Tree district of the southern Abitibi Greenstone Belt, Ontario .  Approximately 1,700 assay results remain pending from this drill program which represents 27% of the total number of samples submitted to the assay lab.

Orefinders is also pleased to report DGN21-004 initial results from drill holes designed to validate down-dip continuity of mineralization at the Duggan Target Zone. These newly received results from a limited number of samples from drill hole DGN21-004 include the following mineralized intervals (Table 1; Figure 1). Assay results for all other samples from drill hole DGN21-004 are pending .

  • 4.82 g/t gold over 5.1 m between 192.5 m and 197.6 m downhole.
  • This result includes a higher-grade interval of 9.55 g/t gold over 2.0 m from 195.6 m to 197.6 m .
  • The interval is hosted by sheared intrusive rocks of gabbro and diorite compositions that represent part of the large Milly Creek pluton.
  • The mineralized rocks are characterized by the presence of quartz-carbonate veins, pyrite and pervasive silicification and carbonatization that resulted from hydrothermal alteration that accompanied gold deposition.
  • 2.66 g/t gold over 3.6 m between 316.8 m and 320.4 m downhole.
  • Two of the samples from the mineralized interval include quartz-carbonate veins containing visible gold; Orefinders has requested the two samples be re-assayed using the screen metallic method to ensure that the coarse fraction of gold would be captured in the analysis.
  • The intersection is hosted by sheared intrusive rocks of diorite composition.
  • The mineralized rocks are characterized by the presence of quartz-carbonate veins, pyrite and pervasive carbonatization that resulted from hydrothermal alteration that accompanied gold deposition.

Further Technical Detail

These new results indicate continuity of mineralization to 60 metres down dip of previous results on the section that was sampled by drill hole DGN21-004 (Figure 1).

Mineralized intervals reported here are grade composites calculated using the Leapfrog Geo 3-D modeling software platform and applying cut-off grades that Orefinders considers to be appropriate for shallow mineralization at the Duggan Target Zone.
