PowerOre Inc announced that its ongoing compilation of historical drill results and 3D modelling of the Springer and Perry mine geology is highlighting a large number of wide disseminated mineralized drill intersections on the Springer mine. The locations of the significant composite intervals and grade obtained in the drilling on the Springer Mine, the composite intervals for the Explorateurs et Innovateurs de Quebec inc and Falconbridge mine data.

Charles Beaudry, MSc, PGeo and geo, Director and VP Exploration for Power Ore, said that "In our February 4 news release, we showed that sampling in the early decades of the mine focused on high grade veins and that much of the low grade, disseminated copper mineralization in surface and underground drilling was left unsampled. We are keen to evaluate this aspect of the historical drilling as it pertains to our attempts at estimating an open-pitable resource on the Springer mine."

Implication for Resource Modelling on the Historical Springer Mine
These results are being used for planning purposes in designing Opemiska's upcoming drill program. This drill program will be divided between identifying additional areas of broadly disseminated mineralization which could be included in an eventual open pit-based mineral resource estimation and a twin hole drill program to validate the mine assays. The automatically calculated composites will not be used for any other purpose.

The results confirm that there is abundant disseminated mineralization on the edges of the glory hole on #3 Vein and that wide disseminated mineralization has been confirmed in the vicinity of #0 Vein to the north and near #4 Vein in the south. Elsewhere the Ex-In drilling intersected narrower zones but often with very high grades in the crown pillars of the principal named veins. Our current 3D modelling is striving to exactly define the veins and the mined out stopes in order to domain the veins for interpolation purposes. The 3D modelling is being done using scanned 2D plans and sections from the old mine and work is ongoing with Veins #1, #2 and #3 completed and the other veins expected to be completed in the coming week.
