Renforth Resumes Drill Program on Wholly Owned Parbec Open Pit Constrained Gold Deposit Contiguous to Canadian Malartic Mine in Malartic Quebec
PICKERING, ON / ACCESSWIRE / February 10, 2021 / Renforth Resources Inc. (CSE:RFR)(OTC PINK:RFHRF) (WKN - A2H9TN) ("Renforth" or the "Company") is pleased to inform shareholders that drilling has resumed on our wholly owned Parbec Gold Deposit in Malartic Quebec, contiguous to the Canadian Malartic Mine, Canada's largest open pit gold mine, straddling ~1.8kms of the Cadillac-Larder Lake Deformation Zone ("Cadillac Break").
This Winter 2021 phase of the 15,000m drill program at Parbec is planned to consist of 5070m of drilling, with 7 drill holes twinning holes drilled in the 1980s and 1990s, and 12 holes infill drilling and undercutting previous holes, with a focus on the Camp Zone and the northwestern part of Parbec.
At the same time as drilling has resumed at Parbec we still await the results of the 22 holes drilled in the latter part of 2020 for which we have not received results. The splitting of the final 7 holes not split prior to Christmas has been completed, with the samples submitted to the lab. These 7 holes are included within the 22 holes.
Upon completion of this program, anticipated in late March, Renforth will rebuild the geological model for Parbec with the data generated by the drill program and then move to update the NI 43-101 resource estimate for Parbec.
During the Parbec program Renforth's field crew will split the core from Surimeau which was not split and submit it for assay.
Technical disclosure in this press release has been reviewed and approved by Brian H. Newton P.Geo a "qualified person" pursuant to the guidelines of NI 43-101.

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 15,000m drill program is ongoing, this program is planned to twin, infill and undercut existing drill holes at Parbec, the aim of this program is to rebuild the geological model and increase the resource estimate upon 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 km2 Surimeau 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 ~$6.7 million in cash and securities on hand (*as at 02/08/21), in addition to the gold contained in our gold deposit.
