Vancouver, B.C. – November 18th, 2021 – Opawica Explorations Inc. (TSXV: OPW) (FSE: A2PEAD) (OTCQB: OPWEF) (the “Company” or “Opawica”) engaged the services of GoldSpot Discovery Corp. (TSXV: SPOT) (‘GoldSpot’) as per the news release dated June 16, 2021, to apply proprietary machine learning techniques within a strong geoscientific framework to help identify and rank drill targets at the Bazooka Property located in the Abitibi Gold Camp.
GoldSpot has been working closely with the Opawica technical team to analyze all available geological data and create high quality multivariate ranked drill targets on the Bazooka Property.
Blake Morgan, Chief Executive Officer of Opawica stated, “The work done by GoldSpot and our Opawica team has exceeded expectations. It has revealed a large collection of High Priority targets and we plan to drill all of them!”
In collaboration with Opawica, GoldSpot 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 the Bazooka Property. These targets were evaluated and underpinned by new understanding gained from GoldSpot. Structural interpretations and 3D modeling provided by GoldSpot have led to the development of an updated geological model that includes fold events, numerous lithostratigraphic units, as well as faults.
The 14 highly favourable geological drill targets identified by GoldSpot in conjunction with the Opawica technical team, were assigned individual target scores which were normalized and weighted, and then ranked in order of priority for follow up. The combination of these multiple datasets and products, as well as new interpretations outlined above, have helped GoldSpot and the Opawica technical team to arrive at an enhanced geological understanding of the area.
