Toronto, Ontario – April 10, 2019 – PowerOre Inc. (“Power Ore” or the “Company”) (TSX.V: PORE) is pleased to announce that it has received its drill permit for the Opemiska Copper Complex Project (“Opemiska” or the “Project”). The Company expects drilling to begin in May.

 

“Our initial drill program on the Opemiska will serve two purposes. The first is to validate the massive amount of existing drill hole data that was completed by Falconbridge. This data will underpin our maiden NI 43-101 resource estimate. The second part of this drill program is aimed at expanding our understanding of the zones with disseminated mineralization which we have identified in earlier news releases. These zones are particularly of interest to us as their definition can add significant resources to what we already know about the mineralization at Opemiska,” said Stephen Stewart, CEO.
