Orford Mining Corporation is a mining company focused on precious metal mineralization. The company is engaged in the discovery, acquisition, evaluation, exploration and development of mineral projects, primarily gold and base metal properties in Quebec. The company was incorporated in May 2010 according to the Business Corporation Act of Ontario, Canada.
The Toronto-based miner owns a 100 per cent stake in the Qiqavik Gold Project situated within the Cape Smith Belt, Nunavik, northern Quebec. The project is host to multiple newly-identified high-grade gold occurrences and encompasses a total land area of about 390 square kilometers. It extends over 40 kilometers inclined east to west.
Orford, in November 2020, acquired a 100 per cent ownership stake in the Joutel-Omega Gold Property which encompasses nearly 17,000 hectares of the less explored Archean Belt in the prolific Abitibi District, Quebec. The company operates a total land package of about 21 square kilometers, including the McClure East and Joutel South Properties in the region.
Both properties are at the exploration stage located within the Joutel Volcanic Complex along the Harricana-Turgeon volcano-sedimentary belt. The gold explorer also has a 100 per cent stake in the West Raglan Project, sitting within the Cape Smith Belt, Nunavik, and close to the Qiqavik Property.
The project is at an advanced stage and hosts polymetallic mineralization, including nickel, copper and platinum group elements (PGE). It is a camp scale project spanning a total land area of 663 square kilometers.
In addition, the company also holds two royalty earning projects:
• The Santa Ana Royalty with two per cent net smelter royalty from Outcrop Gold Corporation.
• The Falan Royalty with 3.5 per cent net smelter royalty from Malabar Gold Corp.
Orford Mining Corporation is focused on the exploration and drilling programs to identify, evaluate and exploit new prospective targets to enhance mineral potential in order to increase its production capabilities. The company mainly targets gold projects with significant mineralization and land position in the new emerging gold district of the Abitibi region. The company also has a 100 per cent owned subsidiary named Condor Precious Metals Inc.
Orford Mining is a public corporation listed on the TSX Venture Exchange, where its ordinary shares are traded under the ticker symbol ORM.
