Targa Explores New Till Anomalies at Opinaca Gold Project

**Targa Exploration Corp. (CSE: TEX) (FRA: V6Y) (OTCQB: TRGEF)** has announced the completion of the next phase of exploration at the Opinaca Gold and Lithium project in Quebec.

Targa Identifies Two Large Till Anomalies

Targa has successfully completed another fieldwork phase. The company took 2,588 regional and in-fill till samples, along with 72 Heavy Mineral Concentrate samples and over 130 rock samples from boulders and outcrops. Results are expected in August, with plans for further exploration in September.

Opinaca Exploration Program

The main goal was to pinpoint the heads of the two gold-in-till anomalies from 2023. Using a portable XRF machine, arsenic values were tested to estimate gold presence. The team identified two distinct till train heads 1 to 4km up-ice from the 2023 anomalies, as well as a third area of interest.

Boulder and Outcrop Prospecting

Targa’s geology crew led by Adrian Lupascu P.Geo, conducted extensive mapping and took over 130 samples from outcrops and boulders. Several outcrops and boulders with disseminated arsenopyrite were found.

HMC Samples

72 heavy mineral concentrate samples were collected in areas of gold and lithium anomalies from 2023. These samples will be analyzed under a microscope to count gold grains. Preliminary results are expected in 3-4 weeks.

Next Phase of Work

The geology team will return to Opinaca in September for further exploration based on upcoming results. More details will be shared in August.
