Orefinders Commences Field Exploration at Mirado Gold Project, Kirkland Lake

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/18/14 -- Orefinders Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE: ORX) has commenced summer field exploration at its wholly-owned Mirado gold project in Kirkland Lake, Ontario. A detailed mapping, sampling and trenching program has commenced with field crews currently exploring high priority gold targets. During the past six months, Orefinders has expanded its land position at Mirado by staking an additional 1,120 hectares along strike from the Mirado gold deposit where a NI 43-101 compliant inferred resource of 442,000 ounces at an average grade of 1.29 g/t Au was identified during the first year of drilling on the property.

More than a dozen gold occurrences are located along a strike length of 9 km from the Mirado gold deposit and will be evaluated during the current field program. Two styles of mineralization are recognized on the recently acquired ground:


--  Gold targets located along strike from the Mirado South Zone that will
    be evaluated for potential to host bulk tonnage gold mineralization
    within flat lying intercalated mafic/felsic volcanic stratigraphy.

--  The second style of gold mineralization on the property includes
    polymetallic volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) occurrences hosted
    within vertically dipping intercalated felsic and mafic volcanic
    stratigraphy. The current exploration program will test the potential
    for Au-Ag-Cu-Zn mineralization on the property.

Environmental base line studies are ongoing and road infrastructure development will commence during the third week of June. It is anticipated that all road construction will be completed within 4-6 weeks, allowing for excellent year round access for heavy equipment.
