Toronto, Ontario – January 29, 2021 – Orefinders Resources Inc. ("Orefinders" or the "Company") (TSX.V: ORX) is pleased report its latest results including a high-grade intercept in drill hole TYR20-004 of 15.6 g/t gold over 3.6m on its 100% owned Knight Project in the Shining Tree Greenstone Belt, 110km southwest of Kirkland Lake, Ontario.
Newly received results from drill hole TYR20-004 define two mineralized intervals (Table 1).
Assay Laboratory Delays
Orefinders would like to update shareholders that it has faced significant delays in the receipt of its assays results. The Company has kept in close communications with the laboratory which has communicated that the previous backlog of results is expected to improve substantially.
Drilling of TYR20-004 was completed on November 20, 2020; the samples for which the results are reported here were received by the assay laboratory on November 27, 2020 and the results were returned from the assay laboratory on January 27, 2021.
Further Technical Detail on TYR20-004 and Ongoing Drilling at the Knight Gold Project
TYR20-004 was designed primarily to validate the continuity, at depth, of the mineralized Tyranite Shear structure beneath the historical workings at the Tyranite Mine, which represents one of several drill target zones at the Knight Gold Project.
The mineralized intervals reported here are grade composites calculated using the Leapfrog Geo 3-D modeling software platform and applying a 2.0 g/t cut-off grade for composited intervals.
The drilling program at Knight is focused on three target zones described in a news release dated October 15, 2020. They include the Tyranite mine zone, the Porphyry Lake zone (including several Minto-style targets) and the Duggan West zone. The thirteen drill holes planned for the Tyranite target zone have now been completed and drilling commenced on the Porphyry Lake target zone on January 26, 2021. Orefinders looks forward to reporting further results for Tyranite as assays are returned from the assay laboratory.
