Opawica Mobilizes Teck Property Trenching and Diamond Drill Program

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 09/02/14 -- Opawica Explorations Inc. ("Opawica" / the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:OPW) announces that the Company has mobilized a trenching and diamond drill program on two separate parts of its 100% optioned Teck Kirkland ("TKL") property located five kilometers northwest of the Town of Kirkland Lake, Ontario.

Several untested drill targets are outlined on the TKL property from past Induced Polarization Surveys carried out in 2004-2005 by the property optionor Hinterland Metals Inc. In addition, approximately 300 meters east of the TKL property, a 1991 Humus Geochemical Survey also outlined several gold and base metal anomalies.

Other past work on the property includes a historic drill hole by Kerr-Addison Mines Ltd. in 1965 (DDH 65-2) on the east boundary of the TKL property, which intersected highly anomalous gold, copper and zinc values over a core length interval of 32 feet within the basement volcanic package (Ontario Department of Mines, Kirkland Lake, Ontario, Office Assessment Files).

The basement volcanic package in this area consists of mafic-ultra mafic volcanics, with gabbro units, syenites and conglomerates.

The field program will consist of trenching and the drilling of initially three holes of approximately 200m per hole.
