LAS VEGAS, NV, July 29, 2013 /CNW/ - Orofino Gold Corp. (PINK OTC: ORFG)
("Orofino Gold" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that in the
Colombian mining districts of Sur de Bolivar, nearer to Rio Viejo where
the Company has rediscovered a potential hidden porphyry system as
reported by the Company's consulting Geologist Michael James, CPG.
The southern Bolivar region has become one of the principal gold
producing areas of Colombia since the 1980's and new deposits are being
discovered and worked down to 50 m of depth, by small miners using
inefficient methods of mineral extraction and processing. Initial
indications suggest that this property might contain a hidden porphyry.
There are important mesothermal vein deposits being worked on the SW
corner of the Batholith and very rich alluvial deposits in the same
area have sustained industrial mining for close to a hundred years
(Segovia, Remedios, Zaragoza and El Bagre).
The Bolivar region of Colombia and particularly Sur de Bolivar has grown
to be the principal production area of precious metals in the country
over the last 25 years, almost completely through small and medium
sized mines working in up to 170 different sites. These sites
demonstrate the potential richness of veins formed in these structures
(OROFINO has assay sample results at over 140 g Au/t, 1011 g Ag/t and
5% Cu, from these various sites). In contrast the most recent work
holds an interesting possibility that the 54X area shows a structural
signature that may be a hidden porphyry. Further detailed technical
work is planned and will be outlined in subsequent releases.
These statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve
certain risks and uncertainties that are difficult to predict. Actual
results could vary materially from the description contained herein due
