  • New outcrop mineralization discovered east of road, near centre of ~20km Victoria structure, highest grab sample result 0.71% Ni in albitized ultramafic with sulfides 

  • Discovery of second band of mineralization north of previous drilling at Victoria 

  • Lalonde delivered consistent elevated values including 0.33% Ni in grab samples from mineralized horizon currently being stripped 

September 26, 2022 – TheNewswire – Pickering, Ontario – Renforth Resources Inc. (CSE:RFR) (OTC:RFHRF) (FSE:9RR) (“Renforth” or the “Company”) is pleased to deliver to shareholders results from prospecting targeting the polymetallic intrusive mineralization at Surimeau during May-July 2022.  These results include 0.71% Ni in a grab sample from a previously unexplored area of central Victoria (east of the Rapide 7 road) and two assay results of 0.32% Ni in two separate grab samples obtained within the current stripping area at Lalonde west (west of the Rapide 7 road).

 

Grab samples are preferentially selected and not representative of the entirety of a structure. In the case of Lalonde west follow up work consisting of stripping a wide band perpendicular (north/south) to the mineralized Lalonde structure (which runs east/west), followed by channel sampling, is ongoing as previously announced. In the case of central Victoria additional prospecting will be undertaken this fall.

 

“These initial results validate the extent of surface mineralization on our Surimeau District Property. Our current interpretation is two separate polymetallic mineralized systems essentially running east/west, outcropping on surface, with lengths of ~20kms at Victoria and currently ~9km at Lalonde, the latter is still open on strike and unexplored. West of the Rapide 7 road the two horizons are separated north/south by ~3.7km. Copper and Zinc mineralization is hosted in a thick sequence of greywacke with graphitic mudstone interlayers while Nickel and Cobalt mineralization is hosted within ultramafic flows. The best mineralization is often found within and around sheared, albite altered, and calc-silicate altered ultramafics the sedimentary contact. We continue to learn more about this property with ongoing exploration to determine the extent and surface grade of the mineralization. We intend to drill at Victoria west this winter, building on the drilled mineralized package as deep as 180m with an ~125m package width over the ~2.2km we have drilled. We will also likely drill Lalonde west of the road for the first time. Our grab samples reflect the consistent presence of polymetallic mineralization with a wide range of grades, clearly there is with more work required, which we will do” states Nicole Brewster, President and CEO of Renforth.

 

2022 Prospecting Results Summarized

This press release reports on prospecting results obtained from the Victoria and Lalonde trends during the 2022 season, prior to trenching. Work to date leads Renforth to conclude that the Victoria and Lalonde are of similar mineralization environments, interpreting the geological setting as being a type of hybrid volcanogenic massive sulfide (VMS) and mono-sulfide solid solution (MMS) system where there was interaction between intruding Nickel enriched ultramafic magmas and sulfide-enriched sedimentary material leading to the formation of nickel mineralization alongside anomalous zinc and copper from any assimilated VMS systems. Following this prospecting work, a channel cutting program was carried out (results pending). Currently, the property has been chipped and stripped with channel cutting ongoing at Lalonde. Renforth’s geologists will map and sample the newly stripped areas subsequent to a field break allowing the local community uninterrupted access for hunting. The results of the prospecting work highlighted below demonstrated to Renforth the consistent presence of some amount of polymetallic (Nickel, Cobalt, Copper and Zinc) mineralization throughout each system and support the continued exploration of the property in order to determine the size and extent of the occurrences.

About Renforth

Renforth is focused on Quebec’s newest battery metals district, our wholly owned ~330 km2 Surimeau District Property, which hosts several known areas of polymetallic “battery metals” mineralization, each with various levels of exploration, as well as a significant amount of unexplored ground. Victoria West has been drilled over a strike length of 2.2km, within a 5km long mineralized structure, proving nickel, copper, zinc and cobalt mineralization, in the western end of a 20km magnetic anomaly. The Huston target, during initial reconnaissance, resulted in a grab sample grading 1.9% Ni, 1.38% Cu, 1170 ppm Co and 4 g/t Ag. Additionally, the Lalonde, Surimeau and Colonie Targets are all polymetallic mineralized occurrences which, along with various gold showings, comprise the areas of potential of this NSR free property.

 

In addition to the Surimeau District battery metals property Renforth wholly owns the Parbec Gold deposit, a surface gold deposit contiguous to the Canadian Malartic Mine property in Malartic, Quebec. In 2020/21 Renforth completed 15,569m of drilling which successfully twinned certain historic holes, filled in gaps in the resource model with newly discovered gold mineralization and extended mineralization deeper. Based upon the success of this significant drill program the Company considers the spring 2020 MRE, with a resource estimate of 104,000 indicated ounces of gold at a grade of 1.78 g/t Au and 177,000 inferred ounces of gold at a grade of 1.78 g/t Au to be out of date. With the new data gained Renforth will undertake to complete the first ever structural study of the mineralization at Parbec, as well as additional total metallic assay work in order to better contextualize the nugget effect on the gold mineralization.

 

Renforth also holds the Nixon-Bartleman property, west of Timmins Ontario, with gold present on surface over a strike length of ~500m.
