(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. << (Assay results for hole AT-10-04 ; Atikwa Lake Property, Ontario - Maybrun Footwall Zone) ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hole From To Width Au Cu AuEQ No. Section Zone (m) (m) (m) g/t % g/t ------------------------------------------------------------------------- AT-10-04 1200N Maybrun FW 538.0 573.0 35.0 0.46 0.141 0.70 ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Including 567.0 577.0 10.0 1.17 0.147 1.42 ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Including 567.0 572.0 5.0 2.13 0.265 2.58 ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Including 569.0 572.0 3.0 3.13 0.282 3.61 ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Including 570.0 572.0 2.0 3.94 0.356 4.55 ------------------------------------------------------------------------- 592.0 610.0 18.0 0.25 0.117 0.45 ------------------------------------------------------------------------- 640.0 652.0 12.0 0.45 0.026 0.49 ------------------------------------------------------------------------- (Intercepts in hole AT-10-04 are estimated to be 90% true widths) >> Hole AT-10-04 is drilled outside of all reported resources and on the same line as, and approximately 500m down dip from, hole AT-08-01 drilled in January 2008. Hole AT-08-01 is included in open pit Maybrun Main Zone Indicated resource estimates published by the Company in August 2009 and this hole yielded the following assay results in 2008. << (Assay results for hole AT-08-01 ; Atikwa Lake Property, Ontario - Maybrun Main Zone) ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hole From To Width Au Cu AuEQ No. Section Zone (m) (m) (m) g/t % g/t ------------------------------------------------------------------------- AT-08-01 1200N Maybrun Main 39.0 222.0 183.0 1.54 .389 2.21 ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Including 41.25 157.0 115.75 2.4 .511 3.28 ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Including 41.25 88.0 46.75 4.02 .866 5.50 ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Including 60.0 87.0 27.0 6.43 1.317 8.69 ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Including 65.0 74.0 9.0 10.24 2.396 14.35 ------------------------------------------------------------------------- And 94.4 108.0 13.6 4.71 .737 5.97 ------------------------------------------------------------------------- (Intercepts in hole AT-08-01 are estimated at ~20% true widths resulting in the overall 183m section representing a true width of approximately 35m) >> All of the above AuEq (Au Equivalent) tables are head grades calculated 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. 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 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.
