Renforth Resources Inc. (CSE – RFR) has received results for the July/August 2018 drill program at Parbec where 6 holes were completed in a total of 1,443.9m of drilling, each of these holes were outside of the 2016 resource envelope and were step-outs from previous drilling. This brings the total meters drilled at Parbec in the last 10 months by Renforth to 5,607.8m in 25 drillholes, each hole encountering gold grades. Management is pleased to deliver to shareholders again a successful exploration program adding value to the asset and would like to acknowledge that our success in the field comes from the expertise of our contractor team, our geologists, drill company and assay lab who all play valuable roles. A resource recalculation has been commenced for Parbec.

Each of the holes drilled in this program had a specific technical target, these included undercutting previous successful holes in order to extend the mineralization deeper, exploration holes targeting strike (east to west) extensions of previously intersected mineralization and undercutting surface exploration results, described for each hole as follows;
Unlike almost all other drilling at Parbec, this exploratory drillhole was aimed southwestwards. The target was the “Felsite” zone seen in historic drilling close to the Pontiac Group sedimentary contact (PAR-87-21: 5.79m @ 2.23g/t Au).
This DDH was drilled to further delineate the “Magnetic Diorite” target discovered in March 2018 (PAR-18-78: 19.3m @ 3.64g/t Au) as well as to explore the strike extension of the porphyry-hosted “Discovery Zone” in the east-centre of the property.
This DDH undercuts PAR-17-69 in the “Partridge Zone” western extension area which has been progressively built up throughout the 2017/18 Renforth drilling.
This DDH is also in the “Partridge Zone” and undercuts PAR-18-70 which passed through several diorite-hosted zones including 14.1m @ 1.26g/t Au, 3.7m @ 3.16g/t Au and 5.0m @ 1.48g/t Au
This DDH is aimed southwestwards in a similar fashion to PAR-18-82. The target in this case was a series of veins which follow the southern Pontiac sedimentary contact in the west of the property (PAR-08-02: 4.5m @ 2.75g/t Au; PAR-08-03: 3.3m @ 2.35g/t Au)
This DDH is midway between PAR-18-83 and the historic “Discovery Zone” area and was drilled to test both that zone as well as the well-mineralized “Magnetic Diorite” in the Cadillac Break schists. Nearby intervals in the Discovery Zone include 22.86m @ 2.25g/t Au (PAR-87-28) and 19.81m @ 1.79g/t Au (DDH H-4)
Interpretation of Results
The ongoing success of drill programs at Parbec is, in management’s opinion, important, as we are extending the mineralization beyond what was included in the NI 43-101 resource which was defined at Parbec in 2016. The intersection of gold in each drillhole, outside of the resource, warrants the recalculation of the resource, management expects the resource at Parbec to increase. Parbec is located in Malartic, Quebec, adjacent to the Canadian Malartic gold mine, with road access and industry support for exploration readily available. To date drilling at Parbec has been relatively shallow, as the mineralization starts on surface, and has yet to cover the entire NE-SW extent of the main mineralized structure on the property, the Cadillac Break. Upon completion and release of the resource update for Parbec, Renforth will again raise funds in order to continue our drilling.
