VANCOUVER, Canada (euro adhoc) - Opawica Explorations Inc. (TSX.V: OPW/OTC: OPWEF/Frankfurt: OE5A) ("Opawica"/the "Company") announces the following assay results from the fourth hole of the six hole drill program from the Company's 100% owned Atikwa Lake gold and copper project near Kenora, Ontario.

using US $800 per oz for Au and $2.00 per lb for Cu. Metallurgical
recoveries and net smelter royalties have not been included in the
AuEq calculations.         As part of the current phase of drilling,
hole AT-10-04 is located about 300m on strike to the northwest and at
approximately the same depth as AT-10-03 which, among other
mineralized sections, returned a principal intercept of 10m of 2.61
g/t AuEq. Hole AT-10-04 is also drilled 300m on strike and about 400m
down dip from the intercept in hole AT-10-02 which encountered 3
mineralized sections of which the core zone of 19m at 2.0 g/t AuEq is
believed to be the same 35m wide zone as that encountered in hole
AT-10-04 above. Along with hole AT10-01 which had multiple Au and Cu
intercepts, including a core zone of 36m at 0.93 g/t AuEq, this
single overall mineralized core zone of the entire Footwall Corridor
is now interpreted to be at least 400m long by 500m down-dip and
between 10m (2.61 g/t AuEq) and up to 36m (0.93 g/t AuEq) wide. The
Footwall Zone ("FWZ") is wide open to depth and on-strike in both
directions. In addition, the gold and copper mineralization found
within the FWZ is not restricted to the one core 10m to 36m wide
portion of the overall 200m wide Footwall corridor.         A minimum of
three more holes will be drilled under the current phase of drilling.
In the event that positive results continue to be encountered at the
Atikwa Lake project the Company will expand the current drill
program.

@@start.t4@@Substantially all of the above current drilling on the Footwall Zone has been completed outside of the near surface NI 43-101 compliant resources which have been previously reported by the Company. The current drill results are@@end@@

expected to increase the Footwall Zone Inferred resources associated
with the Maybrun Main zones.         Finally, the Company expects the
Preliminary Scoping Study on the historic 500 tpd Atikwa-Maybrun mine
footprint and infrastructure will be completed within the next 30
days. As part of this study the Company has collected several grab
samples from the existing tailings ponds and an initial sulphide
bearing (chalcopyrite, pyrrhotite) grab sample from the open pit
which assayed 2.67 g/t Au. Grab samples from the tailings ponds have
returned anomalous gold, copper and silver values with no significant
platinum group elements. More detailed sampling is planned in these
areas.         All Assaying of the above drill core and grab samples
from the Company's Atikwa Lake property was completed by Swastika
Laboratories of Kirkland Lake, Ontario.         Mr. Robert Laakso,
P.Eng., is the Qualified Person for the Atikwa Lake property and he
