Renforth Resources Inc. (CSE – RFR) (OTCQB– RFHRF) (FSE-9RR) (“Renforth” or the “Company”) is pleased to update shareholders on our ongoing drill program on the Victoria West target area of our Surimeau District Property, located south of Malartic Quebec and contiguous to the Canadian Malartic Mine.
As of the end of day March 29th Renforth has completed four holes SUR-21-04, SUR-21-05 and SUR-21-06, SUR-21-07, in two fences and 813m of drilling, to the west of SUR-20-01 through 03, the 194m of drilling completed in Fall 2020. The visual results obtained in SUR-21-04 through SUR-21-07 reveal the presence of nickel, copper, and zinc sulphide mineralization hosted primarily in bands of graphitic siltstones and quartzites within thick bands of ultramafics, as also observed in the holes drilled in the fall of 2020. Pyrrhotite seems to be the most common sulphide at this point in the program. Pentlandite, chalcopyrite and sphalerite are seen within or adjacent to the pyrrhotite. Chalcopyrite is also often seen within silica rich veinlets and stringers. The graphitic siltstones and quartzites are often silicified, while being low in carbonate minerals. Overall, the units appear to be lead deficient evidenced by a lack of galena and nil to low XRF values of lead indicating an Archean genesis of the system. The first fence, SUR-21-04 and SUR-21-05 were a ~1350m step out to the west from SUR-20-103. The mineralized package of lithologies seen to date are approximately 200m in thickness (measured north/south) with sediments to the north and south. The Victoria West system strikes approximately 5km east to west, as evidenced by geophysics, historic work, Renforth’s surface work and drilling.
Drilling has revealed that the mineralized bodies are generally dipping north at an angle of about 50 degrees, indicating a potential relationship between the Victoria West target area and the LaLonde target area approximately 3 km to the north. The mineralized material intersected by the drill is visually identical to the material observed on surface at LaLonde. This observation will require follow up work.
The Victoria West Target drill program continues, planned to be 16 holes in 3500m. Samples have been selected from the four holes completed to date, split and delivered to the lab for assaying. Results will be released once available.
