Opawica Identifies High Priority Drill Targets on Arrowhead

Opawica Identifies High Priority Drill Targets on Arrowhead

Opawica Explorations Inc. (TSXV: OPW) (FSE: A2PEAD) (OTCQB: OPWEF) (the "Company" or "Opawica") using the services of GoldSpot Discovery Corp. (TSXV: SPOT) (OTCQX: SPOFF) ('GoldSpot') in applying its proprietary machine learning techniques within a strong geoscientific framework is helping to identify and rank drill targets at the Arrowhead Property of the Abitibi Gold Camp.

GoldSpot has been working closely with Opawica's technical team to analyze all available geological data and create high quality multivariate ranked drill targets in the Arrowhead Property.

Methodology and Input Data

GoldSpot has compiled and integrated various drillhole legacy datasets, including geological, structural, alteration, mineralogical and geochemical information which have provided an unprecedented insight into Arrowhead's geology. The interpretation of this updated drillhole database led to a cohesive 3D model - geological model, fault network, and ore body model which has provided the foundation for a drilling exploration strategy at Arrowhead Property.

Key Exploration features & Gold Targeting

GoldSpot and Opawica interpreted a series of east-trending, mainly subvertical, mineralized panels, crosscut and displaced by a late northeast-trending brittle fault. The western and eastern panels extend over a distance of 500m and 200m respectively, while depth remains open. Quantitative assessment of gold favourability relative to the geological units, using conditional probabilities, highlighted a primary interest of the felsic tuff and intermediate volcanic rocks. These units are commonly spatially distributed in the vicinity of the mineralized panels.

GoldSpot and Opawica generated gold targets using a "Smart Targeting" approach of knowledge- and AI data-driven methods. The AI data analysis trains machine learning algorithms to predict the presence of gold, using both numeric and interpreted layers on a 5m x 5m x 5m grid cell stack of layers. The integrated results have outlined 20 zones of high priority drill ready targets and additional targets for general exploration drilling.

Blake Morgan, Chief Executive Officer of Opawica stated, "The team at Opawica is thrilled to have developed these new targets. Opawica's maiden drill program on the Arrowhead is scheduled to commence in the near future."
