Opawica Explorations Inc. (TSXV: OPW) (FSE: A2PEAD) (OTCQB: OPWEF) (the "Company" or "Opawica") is pleased to provide an update on the Arrowhead Property in Rouyn Noranda camp of the Abitibi in Quebec.

Highlights include:

  • Discovery of a possible new extension on the eastern portion of the Arrowhead Property
  • Visible gold seen in the drill core of the new eastern zone is known as the Yvan Zone
  • Eastern zone hosts new geological information which is not represented at surface

Company president and chief executive officer, Blake Morgan, commented, "Drilling is progressing extremely well on our Arrowhead Property. With several visually exciting holes drilled, the team is looking forward to receiving the assay results. This new Yvan Zone has been a high priority to the Opawica geologists, and we are thrilled to not only have drilled a small portion of it, but to have hit visible gold, adding to our new potential extension theory."

In 2016, the Company collected a total of 36 rock outcrop samples over the entire property to cover the outcropping felsic volcanics. These samples were analysed for multi elements, whole rock oxides and rare earth elements to determine the geochemical alteration and element content. The objective of the rock outcrop geochemistry survey was to delineate favourable zones for gold-rich volcanogenic massive sulphide deposits.

Several type geological geochemistry indexes of the chemistry were generated, these included, PER-GH index, Ishikawa index, Sericite index, Chlorite index Spitz-Darling index, Alkali index, and CCPI (Chlorite Carbonate Pyrite Index). A summary of these indexes is present in Figure 1. Figure 1 visually illustrates four areas of interest. There are three areas on the western part of the property, where the much of the historical drill and current drill program is currently being undertaken, and one the area on the eastern side representing a new exploration target.

As a direct result of the 2016 rock analyses, the Company permitted and drilled two holes into the alteration index anomalies on the east side of the property. Holes AR-22-11 and AR-22-12 both have dip of 50⁰ at 175⁰ Az and depth of 447m and 468m respectively.

A preliminary review of the hole AR22-12 at 375m indicates the presence of a quartz vein structure ~ 3x2cm thick with a bleb of chalcopyrite and trace visible gold (Figure 2 below - the Yvan Zone). The gold occurs in Rhyolite- Felsic volcanic rock which is massive in appearance with weak/discrete foliation 70⁰ core access. The mineralization recognized in the core may represent an unknown extension for the known mineralization on the western part of the Arrowhead property.

The Arrowhead project is mainly covered by the metavolcanites of the Blake River Group. Strata are oriented east-west and present a subvertical dip. Volcanic and sedimentary rocks form a series of east-west-trending, steeply dipping monoclinal panels. The sequences are separated by longitudinal contacts parallel to the lithologies. In the southern part of Joannes township, the Cadillac Fault runs along an east-west axis over a lateral distance of about 150 kilometres. In the province of Quebec, more than 40 gold deposits that have produced over 60 million ounces of gold in the past hundred years and are associated with this major structure and its subsidiary faults. *

Canada Nickel Company Initiates Federal Permitting Process for Crawford Nickel Project

Canada Nickel Company Initiates Federal Permitting Process for Crawford Nickel Project

Canada Nickel Company Inc. ("Canada Nickel" or the "Company ") (TSXV: CNC) (OTCQX: CNIKF) announced today that the federal Impact Assessment permitting process for the Company's Crawford Nickel Project has been initiated following the acceptance by the Impact Assessment Agency of Canada (the "Agency") of the Company's Initial Project Description (the "IPD"). The Agency has determined the IPD conforms to the regulations and it has been posted to the Agency's public website for an official comment period.

Canada-Nickel-Company-Logo (CNW Group/Canada Nickel Company Inc.)

"We would like to thank all who have taken the time to provide feedback, and to reiterate the significant role each individual can play in the careful and informed design, development, and operation of the Crawford Nickel Project," said Mark Selby , Chair and CEO of Canada Nickel.  "The relationships we have built since the earliest days of the project have been crucial in facilitating these conversations, and by continuing to collect, reflect upon, and integrate the comments, concerns, questions, and suggestions we receive, Canada Nickel hopes to build a project that maximizes benefits to all communities in the region."

Engagement Period
Following the submission of an IPD draft to the Agency in May 2022 (see news release Canada Nickel Takes Important Step in Crawford Nickel Project Permitting Process, 12/05/2022 ), Canada Nickel initiated an extensive round of engagement on the IPD, hosting more than 20 meetings with Indigenous communities, project stakeholders, and the general public to present key content from the IPD and enable follow up Q&As. The intention of these meetings was to gather crucial feedback from as many interested individuals as possible – all of which was carefully logged and integrated into the final IPD submission.

Next Steps
The Agency's filing of the IPD to its website signals the beginning of a 180-day comment period for the document. With the IPD now publicly available, the Agency will conduct its own series of engagement activities, which will assist the Agency in developing a Summary of Issues relating to the project, to then be provided to Canada Nickel. Subsequent to this and over the coming months, Canada Nickel will complete a Response to the Summary of Issues and a Detailed Project Description, both of which will be submitted to the Agency for further review.

For more information regarding the IPD or the Impact Assessment process, please visit the Agency's website at https://www.canada.ca/en/impact-assessment-agency.html .
