Orford Reports Encouraging Preliminary Drill Results from Joutel Eagle Gold Property

Canada NewsWire

TORONTO, May 12, 2022 /CNW/ – Orford Mining Corporation (TSXV: ORM) (Orford) is pleased to report positive partial drill hole assays from its’ first two hole(s) at the Joutel Eagle Property (“Joutel Eagle”) located along the historical Eagle-Telbel Mine Trend in the Abitibi Greenstone belt.  

Highlights Include:
  • Confirmation of the location of the Historical “South Gold” mineralization system on the Joutel Eagle Property (Table 1)
  • Grades of up to 10.8 g/t Au over 0.84 metres included in a wider interval were intersected in drill hole 22-JE-002 (Table 1). This is higher than those reported historically from the system in nearby hole 82-02 which reported up to 5.5g/t Au over 1.43 metres from 170.32 to 171.75 metres1.
  • Higher grade sections are associated with quartz veining occur within broader lower grade intervals with abundant disseminated sulphides. Such intervals include 9.35 metres grading 2.20 g/t, and 7.13 metres grading 1.70 g/t in hole 22-JE-002 (Table 1) .

Table 1: Highlight of Joutel Eagle Drill hole assays received to date. All drilling intervals are down-hole lengths. True thicknesses cannot be estimated with available information. Intervals were reported with a cut-off of 0.5g/t Au and a maximum of 2 metres internal dilution .

David Christie, President and CEO of Orford, commented, “The Joutel Eagle property’s South Gold Zone has proven that it is more auriferous than historically reported.  We are very encouraged by both the high grades intersected but also by the thick lower grades intersections at such shallow depths. We anticipate a follow up drilling program once all the analytical results back.

The locations of historical holes used for 2022 drill targeting was estimated based on historical georeferenced maps, historical aerial imagery and the location of 3 historical casings found on the property. As a result, the first hole 22-JE-001 was drilled too far to the south and did not reach the desired target/stratigraphy at the estimated depth. Holes 22-JE-002 and 22-JE-003 did intersect the desired stratigraphy reported in historical hole 82-02 and 80-192 respectively. Note that historical hole 80-19 contained many intervals of redacted assay results. Orford awaits results for the remaining outstanding assays in holes 22-JE-002 and 22-JE-003 (Table 2) before deciding on next steps and remains encouraged by the widespread mineralization associated with sulfides and quartz veining.

Assays

Sample shipments were sealed and shipped to AGAT Laboratories, Val-d’Or, Québec. All gold assays reported were obtained by standard fire-assaying on 50-gram nominal weight with an atomic absorption spectroscopy finish or by gravimetric finish in the case of overlimit and on request (methods 202551 and 202564) at AGAT Laboratories, Mississauga, Ontario. All samples were also analyzed for multi-elements, including copper and silver, using a four-acid method with an ICP-OES finish (method 201070) at AGAT Laboratories, Mississauga, Ontario. 

Drill program design, Quality Assurance/Quality Control (“QA/QC”) and interpretation of results are performed by qualified persons employing a QA/QC program consistent with NI 43-101 and industry best practices. Standards and blanks are inserted at a minimum of 10% for QA/QC purposes in addition to those inserted by the lab. A subset of samples has not yet been sent for a verification assay at another lab. AGAT Laboratories are accredited by the Standards Council of Canada and found to comply with the requirements of ISO/IEC 17025:2017.

About the Joutel Eagle Property

The property is situated just to the northwest of Agnico Eagle’s past producing Eagle -Telbel operation which produced in excess of 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 kilometre Joutel Eagle Project from Globex Mining Enterprises Inc. (TSX: GMX) (OTCQX International: GLBXF) (Frankfurt: G1MM).
