Opawica Explorations (OPW) has completed its maiden drill program on the Arrowhead Property in the Rouyn Noranda camp.

The company drilled 13 holes on the Arrowhead Property, comprising 4,305.7 metres.

It has sent 1,577 rock samples, amounting to 1,844.75 linear metres for assay.

The drill program targeted the Cadillac shear zone, and visible gold was encountered in a quartz vein shear zone in hole AR-22-13 at a depth of around 375.945 metres.

Opawica’s President and CEO,  Blake Morgan, was thrilled about completing its maiden drill program, “With visible gold and numerous intersections of up to nearly 17 metres.”

The only thing left for Opawica to do is to wait on results, “Phase two will take place later this year once all data has been received,” added Morgan.

Surveys completed by the company were done to help identify mineralization that does not have a surface expression.

A 3D Borehole Pulse EM system is used in which an axial component (Z) probe and a cross-component (XY) probe measure the three components of the induced secondary field.

The first pass with the ‘Z’ probe detects any in-hole or off-hole anomalies and gives information on size, conductivity, and distances to the edge of conductors.

While the second pass with the ‘XY’ probe measures two orthogonal components of the EM field in a plane oriented at right angles to the borehole.

Such results can give directional information about the center of the conductive body.

The Arrowhead Project is mainly covered by the metavolcanites of the Blake River Group. Volcanic and sedimentary rocks form a series of east-west-trending, steeply dipping monoclinal panels.

In the province of Quebec, over 40 gold deposits have produced over 60 million ounces of gold in the past hundred years and have been linked with this significant structure.

Opawica Explorations Inc. is a junior Canadian exploration company with a portfolio of precious and base metal properties.

Opawica Explorations Inc. (OPW) is up 4 per cent, trading at C$0.13 at 12:51 pm EST.
