ORFORD MOBILIZES 2022 EXPLORATION PROGRAM ON HIGH-GRADE NICKEL-COPPER-PGE RAGLAN WEST PROPERTY

David ChristiPresident and CEO of Orford commented “We believe the fieldwork completed in 2021 at West Raglan has laid the foundation for what should be a very exciting summer drilling program in 2022. We look forward to drilling at the West Raglan Nickel project for the first time since 2015. »

Historical work on the West Raglan Property has been concentrated around the Frontier Zone where several high-grade nickel-copper PGE lenses have been intercepted (Table 1). The Frontier Zone covers an approximately 2 km long segment of the largest property-wide trend of ultramafic bodies that extends 50 km along the regional Raglan Mine trend. There is a large volume of ultramafics outside the Frontier zone with similar potential to host high-grade nickel-copper-PGE deposits. Drilling in 2022 will focus on testing high conductance anomalies consistent with possible nickel sulphide sources outside of Frontier at Beverly and Boomerang (Figure 2).

About the West Raglan Project

The West Raglan property (Figure 1) is a large stretch of 839 km2 property located in the Cape Smith belt in the Nunavik region Northern Quebec. West Raglan Ni, Cu, PGE, Co mineralization is hosted in ultramafic units of the Lac Esker Suite (1.89-1.87 Ga). These ultramafic units contain all known nickel sulphide mineralization in the Cape Smith belt, including Glencore’s Raglan mine (North Trend) and the Canadian Royalties, Nunavik Nickel mine hosted on the South Trend. The West Raglan property covers a 50 km extension of the “North” trend, which contains Raglan-style deposits, and the “South” trend, which contains Canadian Royalties-style deposits. Raglan is a first quartile cash cost nickel producer with one of the richest reserves among the world’s major nickel deposits (proven and probable reserves as of December 2019 10.39 million tonnes at 2.81% Ni, 0.77% Cu, 0.83 g/t Pt, 2.03 g/t Pd and 0.06% Co[1]). Information from neighboring properties is not necessarily indicative of mineralization on Orford Mining properties.

About Orford Mining Corporation
Orford Mining is a gold explorer focused on highly prospective and under-explored areas of Northern Quebec. Orford’s main assets are located in two sectors: the Cape Smith belt in the Nunavik region and the Joutel region in the Abitibi district. The Qiqavik and West Raglan projects comprise a land package totaling over 105,000 hectares in the Cape Smith belt of Northern Quebec. The Qiqavik project hosts several new high-grade gold discoveries along a mineralized trend of more than 40 km. The West Raglan project contains a number of Raglan-style high-grade nickel/copper/platinum group metal discoveries along a 50 km mineralized trend. Orford acquired four real estate positions (Joutel – Eagle, East McClureJoutel – Sud and Joutel – Omega) totaling 26,815 hectares in the Joutel region of the Abitibi district of Northern Quebecwhich houses historical deposits such as Eagle/Telbel, Joutel Copper, Pear Tree Copper, and Vezza deposits. Orford is continually looking for new gold exploration opportunities in North America. Orford’s common shares trade on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol ORM.
