Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - May 9, 2023) - Orestone Mining Corp. (TSXV: ORS) (OTC Pink: ORESF) (FSE: O2R1) (WKN: O2R1) has reevaluated the presence of porphyry dykes intersected within thick sections of gold-copper mineralized altered volcanics in three drill holes C20-03, C21-01 and C21-02 on the Captain Porphyry Project. These highly altered quartz Monzonite porphyry dykes measure from 4 to 110 metres thick grading up to 0.84 g/t gold and up to 1700 ppm copper.

On section line L1220 four porphyry dykes are mapped from 4 to 82 metres thick grading from 0.28 to 0.84 g/t gold and 540-1700 ppm copper. These dykes dip at 45 degrees and lie in close proximity to the outlined MT conductor/porphyry anomaly, to view maps please click here to visit Orestone's website. The closest dyke to the anomaly grades 0.84 g/t gold and 1700 ppm copper over 14 metres with values up to 1.8 g/t gold and 0.22 % copper.

On section line L1320 the drill holes are located 300 metres north of the section line with two dykes mapped in the hanging wall of the MT conductor/porphyry anomaly. The dykes are from 10 to 110 metres thick and grade from 0.18 to 0.70 g/t gold and 200 ppm copper.

The presence of these altered and mineralized dykes both in the hanging wall and dipping into the observed MT conductor/potential porphyry intrusive implies that they are related and it is thought highly probable that the planned drill holes will intersect a gold-copper porphyry intrusive system with values similar to the adjacent dykes.
