Mr. Blake Morgan reports


Further to the company’s news release of Nov. 24, 2021, Opawica Explorations Inc. has engaged the services of Forage DCB Drilling of Rouyn-Noranda to undertake a minimum of 3,000 metres of drilling on the Bazooka property.

Blake Morgan, chief executive officer of Opawica, stated: “The team at Opawica is thrilled to begin drilling on the Bazooka property. Historically, the Bazooka property has hosted some exciting gold grades and we are looking forward to expanding on that.”

Significant gold mineralization has been established on the Bazooka property from near surface to approximately 250 metres vertical depth during past drill programs completed on the property by previous owners. In 1944, Siscoe intersected an interval of 5.79 metres of 77.18 grams per tonne gold (true width unknown), with historical drill intercepts ranging from narrow and intermittent anomalous gold. In 1981, Soquem reported values of up to 7.50 metres of 25.77 g/t Au; in 2003 Lake Shore Gold Corp. intercepted 1.25 metres of 94.11 g/t Au; and RT Minerals Corp. intersected values of up to 17 metres of core length at 7.86 g/t Au, including 7.20 metres of 16.77 g/t Au. These recent intervals are estimated at approximately 85 per cent to 93 per cent true widths. This gold mineralization is known to exist within 50 metres on strike to the gold mineralization on the Yorbeau property, and for a current strike length on Opawica’s Bazooka property and optioned Bazooka property for approximately seven kilometres.

Opawica’s drill program is designed to test the depth extension of the mineralized zone of the underground works. In 1951 and 1952, Eldona Gold Mine sank a shaft of 125 metres and at level minus 114 metres, and 634 metres of drifts were developed and reached the fold nose feature of the Cadillac Larder Lake Break (CLLB). Four mineralized gold zones were outlined as follows: “Average of back panel samples grading 0.31 oz over 15 feet, average of back panel samples grading 0.55 oz over 3.5 feet by 69 feet long, average of back panel samples grading 0.06 oz over 5.3 feet by 60 feet long and channel samples grading 0.21 oz (over a drift section of 10 feet),” (extract from technical report filed on SEDAR on April 28, 2016).

The qualified person has not verified the information on the Abitibi greenstone belt, Yamana and Wasamac gold resources.
