MONTREAL, Feb. 27, 2019 – OPUS ONE Resources Inc. (the “Company” or “OPUS ONE”) – (TSX Venture Exchange: OOR), is pleased to announce that the till Survey carried out in the summer and fall of 2018 returned three gold targets, including two that are located in portions of the property that were not known to hosts gold showings. Overall, the survey indicates that the entire southern portion of the property host anomalous gold in the till. Nevertheless, three anomalous areas stand out from assay results as well as gold counts. The westernmost anomaly is found in an area previously known to host gold showings in trenches and drilling. The Survey confirms the importance of this sector as a potential target for gold mineralization.
Two anomalous areas were also discovered in the southeastern portion of the property where no gold was ever reported. This is a very exciting development on our Fecteau property. These anomalies are of the same level (in ppb’s Au) as anomalies found down ice at Monster Lake or Eleonore, according to Rémi Charbonneau, Ph.D., P. Geo, who carried out the survey and interpreted the results. The best till result returned 1920 ppb Au which is a very high value for this type of sample treatment. Anomalies are defined by areas exhibiting multiple results above 150 ppb Au. Typically, in this sector of the Abitibi, sources of gold anomalies are located up ice a few kilometres to the northeast of the anomalies. The property is large enough to host these potential gold bearing structures.
The company intends to extend its till sampling coverage on the property as well as complete a program of boulder tracing in order to define the sources of these anomalies and propose trenching and eventually drilling programs. Orogenic gold is known to occur in the district, including on the Fecteau property, in the form of gold bearing quartz veins. The most promising project of this very prospective district is Windfall where a significant gold deposit is being outlined by Osisko Mining.
For the management of the company, results of the till sampling program were very satisfying and justify additional field work for the coming summer. The objective of Opus One is to be able to define drill targets for the winter of 2019-20.
In other news, the company has decided to abandon two of its options in the Abitibi, the WinWin and Grizzly projects. After two years of exploration, it was decided that results and market conditions did not justify paying for coming commitments on these projects. The company intends to continue its effort to find quality acquisitions in Quebec as well as in Latin America where its team possesses extensive experience.
Mr. Louis Morin, CEO, states: “Opus One remained active through the course of 2018, although it was a challenging year for mining exploration companies. We took a very careful approach in order to maximize the efficiency of the company’s resources while avoiding dilution in a difficult market. On a cost-reward basis, we took decisions not to continue our work commitment for two properties we had optioned as results obtained did not justify spending more of our money. Results generated by till Survey program on our Fecteau Property took a while to obtain as this is a painstaking sampling / assay / compilation work plan. Nevertheless, it was worth the wait as 3 totally new and significant gold targets have been outlined. The Fecteau Property is well located within Urban-Barry gold camp, one of the busiest mining districts in Canada. Opus One is actually reviewing different projects located in Latin America countries that are mining friendly and where geo-political risk is minimal.”
OPUS ONE RESOURCES will exhibit in Toronto at Booth 2125 during PDAC 2019 convention from March 3rd till March 6th in Toronto Convention Center. You are welcome to visit our booth and meet with our team for an update about the ongoing and upcoming activities.
