TORONTO, Nov. 5, 2020 /CNW/ - Orefinders Resources Inc. ("Orefinders" or the "Company") (TSX.V: ORX) is pleased to announce assay results from its first completed diamond drill hole of the 9,000m drilling program on its 100% owned Knight Gold Project, in the Shining Tree Greenstone Belt 110km southwest of Kirkland Lake, Ontario.
This hole, TYR20-001, was targeted at the Tyranite Mine and its purpose was to test the continuity of mineralization at about 200 metres below the deepest levels that had previously been mined.
TYR20-001 Returned Two Distinct and Significant Intersections of Gold Mineralization:
4.18 g/t gold over 14.28m (true thickness is estimated to be 11 metres) between 615.72m and 630m downhole.
2.03 g/t gold over 9.0m (true thickness is estimated to be 8 metres) between 719m and 728m downhole.
Further Technical Detail on Drill Hole TYR20-001
The first three drill holes at the Knight Gold Project are designed to validate the continuity, at depth, of the mineralized Tyranite Shear structure, beneath the historical workings at the Tyranite Mine that represents one of several drilling target areas at the Knight Gold Project. Drill hole TYR20-001 was completed on October 8, and the bulk of assays have now been returned. The second drill hole, TYR20-002, has been completed, and assays are pending. TYR20-001 and TYR20-002 are shown in a section in Figure 1. Drilling of the third hole, TYR20-003, is ongoing. All drill holes at the Knight Gold Project are oriented to allow measurements of structural features in the core.
Assay Results from TYR20-001
Positive assays results were returned from two mineralized intersections in TYR20-001. The cut-off grade used to calculate grade composites for both intersections is 1.0 g/t.
