Orefinders Announces Knight Project Drill Program and Financing
Toronto, Ontario – February 04, 2020 – Orefinders Resources Inc. (“Orefinders” or the “Company”) (TSX.V: ORX) is pleased to announce the commencement of a $500,000 non-brokered financing. The net proceeds of this financing will be used for a drill program on its 100% owned Knight Gold Project and for general working capital.
The terms of the financing are as follows:
- Hard Dollar Units are 5 cents and include a common share plus one half warrant exercisable at 8 cents for 2 years.
- Flow Through Units are 6 cents and include a common share plus one half warrant exercisable at 10 cents for 2 years.
Details of the Drill Program
Orefinders has outlined three distinct targets on its Knight Gold Project which it plans to drill in 2020. Each of the three targets has distinct geological styles and have never been previously drill tested. Orefinders views the Knight Project as having highly prospective geology within a large mineralized system, with gold having been deposited over a protracted period. The geology of the Knight Project is complex and has similar features to those found in the Kirkland Lake-Larder Lake camp 110 km to the northeast. Orefinders Knight Project is permitted to drill.
The untested drill targets include:
- Porphyry Lake IP Anomaly Target
- Well developed high chargeability, low resistivity anomaly, 250m wide and 300m long and confirmed on 2 additional lines to south.
- Possible mineralized porphyry core of gold-rich alteration system.
- Large near-surface Induced Polarization (IP) anomaly delineating potential source of mineralization at Porphyry Lake.
- Two holes totalling 400m has been earmarked to test this target from shore drilling.
- Tyranite Mine
- Brand new 3D modelling of gold mineralization along the North-South trending Tyranite fault. Tyranite’s best intersected grades and widths occur where the fault intersects the East-West trending ultramafic units, and more specifically at the contacts of the ultramafics with other lithologies.
- This interpretation of this geologic model has never been drill tested.
- Drilling will focus on confirming the geological model and in-filling between historical holes to attain appropriate hole spacings for inferred mineral resource modelling. Depending on level of financing up to 13 holes totalling 3,000 metres may be allocated for this purpose.
- More Minto Pipe-like Targets
- New targets with geophysical and geochemical characteristics similar to the Minto mineralized breccia pipe. Ten targets have been selected for follow up geophysics with induced polarization method.
- Up to 3 holes totalling 450m has been reserved subject to favourable results from IP survey.
