Toronto, Ontario – May 25, 2022 – Orefinders Resources Inc. ("Orefinders" or the "Company") (TSX.V: ORX) is pleased to update shareholders on its now complete drill program at its McGarry Project. The drill program completed 5,433 metres of diamond drilling over 11 holes. Samples have been sent to the laboratory for assaying and the Company expects to receive the results in early June. Orefinders cautions the timing of lab results has been unpredictable.
The Company is now planning its next drill program on its Knight Project in the Shining Tree Distring of Ontario.
Details of McGarry Phase 1 Drill Program
Orefinders’ McGarry project is immediately adjacent to the Kerr-Addison Mine. Drill targets for the Phase 1 program were defined based on the results of advanced 3-D constrained inversion modeling performed by Mira Geoscience of new geophysical data sets generated by an ORION SWATH survey performed for the Company by Quantec Geoscience (NR dated March 1, 2021). The new geophysical data sets include both IP (induced polarization) and MT (magnetotelluric) data that together provide high resolution coverage of the Project to depths of around 2,500 meters, which allows for more detailed modeling of the geology and structures at the Project than was previously possible, and for the identification of high priority drill targets.
The Phase 1 drill program and the geological, structural and geophysical context of the high priority drill targets are presented at the following link:
