25 Mar Renforth Commences Drilling the Victoria Nickel Target on Surimeau District Property
March 25 2021
Renforth Resources Inc. (CSE – RFR) (OTCQB– RFHRF) (FSE-9RR) (“Renforth” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the start of a 3,500m drill program on the Victoria Nickel Target which strikes over ~5km on Renforth’s wholly owned 215 km2 Surimeau District Property, where Renforth has previously obtained sulphide nickel values on surface and sub-surface, confirming the presence of mineralization as indicated by historic exploration information.
Renforth’s Surimeau District Property is located south of the towns of Cadillac and Malartic Quebec, with road access to the west and the centre of the property via well maintained gravel roads which service the hydro-electric generating stations south of the property, whose power lines also run through the property. The eastern end of the property is accessible via municipal roads. Road access makes the movement of the drill from Renforth’s Parbec property, where the drill program concluded with 5,925m drilled in 22 holes, a straightforward operation. This finishes the drill program started in September 2020 at a total of 15,569m drilled, all of which will be incorporated in a rebuilding of the geological model and a resource restatement, upon receipt of all the assays. Presently there is a total of 42 holes with unreported assays for Parbec.
The Surimeau District Property hosts several target areas, both for critical and strategic metals, as well as for gold. The target areas have been identified on the basis of prior work carried out on the property, including verification of the presence of mineralization by Renforth.
The drill program which has just commenced at Surimeau is focused on the Victoria target area, with drilling planned of ~3km of the ~5km of strike in that target area. This is a follow up program to Renforth’s confirmation surface and sub-surface sampling programs which demonstrate the presence of mineralization including sulphide nickel, zinc, copper and silver, the testing for platinum group elements is ongoing.
“The zinc-nickel occurrences at Surimeau bear a striking geological similarity to the Outokumpu, Finland deposits, which have a similar, and unusual, association of these two elements in what appears to be a tectonically juxtaposed magmatic nickel and zinc-rich volcanogenic massive sulfide-type settings. This geological setting is an almost unique association in Canada (there is at least one other occurrence), but a substantial and productive resource in Finland.” states Dr. James Franklin PhD FRSC, P.Geo, Renforth’s Principal Technical Advisor on the Surimeau District Property.

Renforth holds the Parbec open pit constrained gold deposit in Malartic Quebec, contiguous to the Canadian Malartic mine, with 104,000 indicated ounces of gold at a grade of 1.78 g/t Au and 177,000 inferred ounces of gold at a grade of 1.78 g/t Au. A 15,569m drill program has been recently completed, this program was planned to twin, infill and undercut existing drill holes at Parbec, to support a rebuild of the geological model and a resource estimate restatement. In addition to this Renforth has discovered a nickel bearing ultramafic, coincident with a copper/zinc VMS, over ~5km of strike in the western end of the 20km central anomaly at Renforth’s wholly owned 215 km2Surimeau property. This prospect was discovered on surface and the subject of a very short, shallow drill program, a more robust drill program is planned for Spring 2021. Renforth also holds the Malartic West property, the site of a copper/silver discovery, and Nixon-Bartleman, west of Timmins Ontario, with gold present on surface over a strike length of ~500m. Renforth is well funded, with ~$6 million in cash and securities on hand (*as at 03/15/21), in addition to the gold contained in our gold deposit.
