Renforth Resources Inc. (CSE – RFR) (OTC US– RFHRF) (WKN – A2H9TN) (“Renforth” or the “Company”) is pleased to inform shareholders that our Surimeau district scale Nickel/VMS prospect drill program has provided;
- 156% Ni over 13m, including 0.483% Ni over 1m in SUR-20-003,
- 126% Ni over 20.5m, including 0.209% over 2.4m from hole SUR-20-002.
- SUR-20-001 returned 1.16% Zn and 0.132% Cu over 4.03m from the bedrock surface down to 4.0m, followed by 0.147% Ni over 7.9m
The polymetallic mineralization is associated with a sulphide assemblage composed of nickel bearing pyrrhotite, sphalerite and chalcopyrite.
This program has tested historical information from trenching and drilling known as the “Victoria West” target. Renforth’s preliminary surface sampling and these 3 drillholes, combined with historic information, create an area of interest that has the most data available on the property. Overall, the prospective horizons tested herein include approximately 5kms. of strike in the western end of the ~20km central anomaly at Surimeau. (refer to the Surimeau property map, available in the Surimeau section, under Projects, at www.renforthresources.com)
Renforth interprets the Surimeau central anomaly to be a nickel bearing ultramafic body occurring alongside, and intermingled with, a sediment-and volcanic hosted copper/zinc volcanogenic massive sulfide style occurrence. This is considered by Renforth to be an “Outokumpu-like” occurrence, a reference to a district in eastern Finland known for several unconventional sulphide deposits variously hosting economic grades of Cu, Zn, Ni, Co, Ag and Au. Like Surimeau, the Outokumpu district is located in a deformed high grade metamorphosed terrain where volcanic and ultramafic units form intercalated lenses in a sediment dominated environment.
Hole SUR-20-001 and SUR-20-003, along strike and approximately 200m apart , were both collared in mineralization. SUR-20-002 was collared over 60m south of SUR-20-003 and intersected the northern contact between the volcanic complex and sediments of the Pontiac Group. Hole SUR-20-003 ended abruptly due to equipment breakdown, at a length of 32m, still in mineralization, which ended the program.
