Orford Launches Drill Program on the Joutel Eagle South Gold Zone

Canada NewsWire

TORONTO, Jan. 23, 2023 /CNW/ – Orford Mining Corporation (“Orford“) (TSXV: ORM) is pleased to report the mobilization of a diamond drill to the Joutel Eagle Gold Property to begin a 2,000 metre drill program focused around the South Gold Zone. The 2023 program will test 400 metres of strike along the South Gold Zone (Figure 1 & 2).  Historical drilling results, confirmed by Orford’s 2022 drill program, with grades of up to 14.7 g/t gold over 0.64 metres reported within a larger mineralized interval grading 1.11 g/t over 20.64 metres in hole 22-JE-003. In addition another interval of 1.24 g/t gold over 28.10 metres1 (Figure 1 & 2) was reported in hole 22-JE-002 as well as 2.0 g/t over 20.65 metres in hole 22-JE-001 confirming the location of the historical mineralized system.

David Christie, President and CEO of Orford, commented, “We look forward to the results of our second diamond drill program on the Joutel Eagle property.  We believe the wide near-surface gold mineralization at the South Gold Zone shows some continuity vertically and along strike.  It is our view that there is considerable value in Orford’s reassessment and exploration of this historic gold camp and we look forward to the next phase of drilling at Joutel Eagle. Success showing continuity along strike at the South Gold Zone will allow us to move towards establishing a resource quickly.”

The most developed mineralized zone on the Joutel Eagle property is the “South Gold Zone”, which has been tested historically along a strike length of approximately 700 meters and is partially tested to a depth of 500 meters below surface (Figures 1 & 2). Orford’s goal is to show continuity along strike and at depth, while also testing multiple conductive horizons to the north observed in the recently completed airborne electromagnetic survey2.

About the Joutel Eagle Property

The property is situated just to the northwest of Agnico Eagle’s past producing Eagle-Telbel operation which produced more than 1.1 Moz of gold3 from 1974 to 1993. The Joutel Eagle property covers 11 km of the Casa Berardi structural zone south splay (CBSZ) which is associated with several gold deposits and, together with our McClure East property, gives Orford over 17 km coverage on the prolific CBSZ (Figure 1). The Joutel Eagle Property sits to the north of Orford’s 100% owned Joutel South Property and to the west of Orford’s 100% owned McClure East property. Information from neighbouring properties is not necessarily indicative of the mineralization on Orford Mining’s properties. On November 30, 2021 Orford announced that it had entered an option to acquire 100% of the 50 square kilometer Joutel Eagle Project from Globex Mining Enterprises Inc. (TSX: GMX) (OTCQX International: GLBXF) (Frankfurt: G1MM).
