Orford Mining (ORM) has completed a review of geochemical data on both its Qiqavik Gold property and West Raglan Nickel Copper PGM property.

President & CEO David Christie met with Simon Druker to discuss the news.

“We believe the world’s need for critical minerals has become a priority and is only going to grow as we move away from fossil fuels and countries strive to secure local access to critical minerals. Minerals like lithium, nickel, cobalt and copper, which Orford is exploring, are used in net-zero technologies such as batteries for electric cars and for storage of solar and wind power. We believe the potential of our properties for lithium is significant and is totally unexplored in the Nunavik Region of Northern Quebec. We believe that being close to tidewater at the deep all-season port facility at Deception Bay gives the Nunavik Region an advantage over other districts exploring for lithium.”

The Qiqavik gold exploration property is a camp scale property covering an area of 40,180 ha hosted in the paleoproterozoic Cape Smith Belt (CSB) in Nunavik, Quebec. 

Orford Mining is a gold explorer focused on highly prospective and underexplored areas of Northern Quebec. Orford’s principal assets are located in two areas, the Cape Smith Belt in the Nunavik region and the Joutel region of the Abitibi district.

Orford Mining Corp. (ORM) opened trading at C$0.135.
