ONTARIO – Toronto-based Orefinders Resources
is sharing its exploration plans, 3D models and geologic interpretations for the McGarry gold project at Virginiatown. The former producer lies between the old Kerr-Addition and Cheminis gold mines.
The McGarry mine was active as recently as 2013. Orefinders acquired it from Kerr Mines for 8 million shares in August 2018. The recent work has already highlighted several targets on the property. The 325N zone on the 2250 level will be examined in detail in the next few weeks.
Orefinders says that it has not yet made any plans to dewater the mine. Therefore planned drilling will be done from surface.
The McGarry site has a headframe, shaft, hoist, offices, and functional core shack all of which were refurbished in the last 10 years. The historical resource calculated in 2011 include 447,000 indicated tonnes grading 7.89 g/t gold and157,000 inferred tonnes at 5.83 g/t, both with a cut-off of 51.4 g/t gold.
