Opawica Applies for Drill Permits on 14 High Priority Targets at Bazooka

Vancouver, B.C. – November 24 th , 2021 - Opawica Explorations Inc. (TSXV: OPW)

(FSE: A2PEAD) (OTCQB: OPWEF) (the “Company” or “Opawica”) has commenced the

drill permitting process on its recently identified 14 high property gold targets at the

Bazooka Property of the Abitibi Gold Camp.

The 14 highly favourable drill targets were done in collaboration with Opawica and Gold

Spot. The team has integrated and reinterpreted various datasets (geochemical,

geophysical, geological) to provide a cohesive and informed geoscientific interpretation

which has facilitated drill targeting for the upcoming drill program at Bazooka Property.

Structural interpretations and 3D modeling by GoldSpot have led to the development of

a refined geological model including fold events, lithostratigraphic differentiation, and

the identification of faults.

Bazooka Property

The Bazooka project is contiguous to the southwestern border of Yamana Gold's

Wasamac Gold Property which hosts existing proven and probable mineral reserves of

1.8 million ounces of gold at 2.56 grams per tonne. Wasamac has proven 1,028,000

tonnes at 2.66 g/t Au and probable of 20,427,000 tonnes at 2.56 g/t Au (Yamana Gold

press release Jan. 21, 2021). *

The Bazooka Property occurs along one of the most prolific auriferous structures in the

world, the Cadillac-Larder Lake Break/Fault. The Cadillac-Larder Lake Break/Fault, in

part, marks the boundary between the Archean Abitibi sub-province in the north and the

predominantly metasedimentary Pontiac sub-province south of the fault.

In 2003, Lake Shore Gold Corporation drilled 1m with 316.13 g/t Au on the Property

followed by 2m at 12 g/t Au and 4.5m at 7.9 g/t Au in 2005. A few highlights of the most

recent historical drilling on the Property in 2011 by RT Minerals Corp. returned 17m at

7.8 g/t Au and 1.86m at 29.43g/t Au.

Gold mineralization on the Property occurs within mixed, up to 60m wide (estimated true

width), strong quartz-carbonate-sericite and talc-chlorite schists of sedimentary and

ultramafic to mafic volcanic protoliths, respectively, and is referred to as the Main Zone.

The alteration and mineralization are spatially associated with the Cadillac-Larder Lake

Break/Fault zone, which is at the base characterized by up to 2.0m wide (estimated true

width), strongly graphitic fault. The graphitic fault generally marks the contact between

the sedimentary and ultramafic metavolcanic rocks.

The Main Zone is characterized by strong to intense quartz-carbonate-sericite and talc-

chlorite-carbonate+/-quartz alteration, is generally mineralized with trace to 3%

pyrite+arsenopyrite+/-chalcopyrite+/- pyrrhotite and locally contains fine specks of free

gold in narrow quartz veins/stringers and highly silicified rocks. Patchy to locally

pervasive fuchsite alteration (weak to strong) often accompanies the quartz-sericite-

carbonate alteration. Quartz-tourmaline veins occur locally both within and adjacent to

the Main Zone.
