Renforth Resources Inc. (CNSX:RFR.CN) (OTC:RFHRF) (FSE:9RR) (“Renforth” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce additional positive assay results from the 2021 portion of the >15,000m drilled into the wholly owned Parbec surface gold deposit in Malartic, Quebec, contiguous to the Canadian Malartic Mine. Highlights for an additional four holes are presented below, including 9.95m of 1.75 g/t gold obtained in drill hole PAR-21-142. This drill program, which consisted of 49 drill holes, was designed to infill gaps within the mineralized model, as well as test several historic holes in order to validate >13,000m of drill data excluded from the May 2020 Mineral Resource Estimate for Parbec and to begin to test the deposit at depth, greater than 75% of the mineralization in the model sits above a depth of 300m. With today’s release there are assay results from 6 drill holes remaining to be received and released once complete.
Parbec Assay Results Highlights
*Assays presented above are as measured in the core box and not true width
In drill hole PAR-21-146 the mineralized intervals between 72.3-73.65m down the hole and 88.7-89.7m down the hole are considered unconstrained due to a lack of sampling.
Surimeau District Battery Metals Project Update
Renforth has received the permit required to commence the previously announced stripping program. While assays are still outstanding for the bulk of the 2021 drilling at Surimeau, Renforth will commence the chipping/stripping program in order to expose on surface a portion of the Victoria West mineralized system. It is anticipated that chipping will commence within a week and stripping shortly thereafter. Renforth will use compressed air to clean the newly exposed bedrock once stripping has been completed in order to not stress local water resources after what has been an unusually dry summer. Renforth is happy to say that stripping will be completed prior to the opening of the high-powered rifle hunting season, not unduly inconveniencing local hunters or putting field crew at risk. Our field crew will be able to map and sample the exposed system, as well as prospect ground which has likely not been prospected before with the completion of chipping and stripping.
Victoria West Chipping/Stripping Location with Drill Holes
The gap in the stripping area, indicated in solid yellow, is caused as there is already large-scale outcrop in this area which does not require stripping.
Samples referred to in this press release were selected, split, bagged and tagged in the field and delivers to the facilities of AGAT Laboratories in Val d’Or Quebec where they were assayed for gold using “202-051 – Au by Fire Assay, AAS Finish” and “202-064 – Au by Fire Assay, Gravimetric Finish” for overlimit (>10 g/t Au) values.
Technical disclosure in this press release has been reviewed and approved by Francis R. Newton P.Geo (OGQ#2129), a “qualified person” pursuant to NI 43-101

Renforth holds the Parbec open pit constrained gold deposit in Malartic Quebec, contiguous to the Canadian Malartic mine, with a 2020 resource estimate of 104,000 indicated ounces of gold at a grade of 1.78 g/t Au and 177,000 inferred ounces of gold at a grade of 1.78 g/t Au. This resource estimate is now considered by Renforth to be out of date due to the results received in a 15,569m drill program which has been recently completed. This program was planned to twin, infill and undercut existing drill holes at Parbec, to support a rebuild of the geological model and a resource estimate restatement. In addition to this, Renforth has discovered a nickel bearing polymetallic system, over ~5km of strike in the western end of the 20km central anomaly at Renforth’s wholly owned 260 km2 Surimeau District Property. Renforth also holds the Malartic West property, the site of a copper/silver discovery, and Nixon-Bartleman, west of Timmins Ontario, with gold present on surface over a strike length of ~500m. Renforth is well funded, with ~$5 million in cash and securities on hand (*as at 05/14/21), in addition to the gold contained in our gold deposit.
