Renforth Resources Inc. (CSE: RFR | OTCQB: RFHRF | FSE-9RR) has announced the start of its fall 2023 drill programme on its wholly owned Surimeau property, focused on about 2km of mineralized strike in the central portion of the near 20km long Victoria mineralized structure.
Renforth interprets Victoria to be an Outokumpu style mineralized occurrence, commencing on surface to the deepest pierce point drilled to date, approximately 160m vertical depth.
Outokumpu refers to a mining district in eastern Finland where several similar deposits have been mined since the early 1900’s. Outokumpu-type deposits occur in close association with ultramafic rocks where mineralization occurs because of structural juxtaposition between magmatic Ni-Cu-PGM and stratabound, syngenetic Zn-Cu VMS-type sulfides.
The assemblage found at Surimeau generally consists of carbonate rock, calc-silicates, and serpentinite in close contact with bands of graphitic mudstones that are generally less than 5m in thickness. Structural repetition is evident in drill core where there are multiple repeated sequences.
Mineralization at Surimeau consists primarily of disseminated sulfides, hosted in carbonatized, albitized and silicified rocks at the sheared contacts between serpentinite and graphitic mudstones, and within the mudstones themselves, consisting of varying levels of Ni, Cu, Co, Zn, and anomalous PGE’s.
With this drill programme Renforth plans to drill approximately 4,000m in a series of drillholes designed to undercut previous mineralization, to infill the spacing along the 2.2km of strike currently defined in the main Victoria area to approximately 100m between drillholes in order to support a maiden 43-101 MRE calculation, and to collar additional holes in the north (drilled south as the mineralization dips north) in order to intersect the three mineralized repetitions identified to date.
Renforth has a dominant brownfield land position south of the world class Cadillac-Larder Lake Fault in the prolific Cadillac and Malartic mining camps of Quebec’s Abitibi. Offering exposure to gold, zinc, nickel, copper, cobalt, lithium, and more, Renforth’s land position encompasses several areas of interest.
