Aurion Resources Ltd. (TSXV:AU) – Phase I Drilling Reveals New Zones and Extended Mineralization

Aurion Resources announced Phase I drilling results (12 holes, 2,921m) at the Aamurusko deposit at its 100%-owned Risti property in the Central Lapland Greenstone Belt in northern Finland. Aamurusko is a high-grade discovery along a district scale structural break in a good jurisdiction. Focus returns to Aamurusko after a couple of years and results from the main zone continue to deliver. To date, 80% of all holes drilled at Aamurusko have intersected gold exceeding 1.0 g/t Au, with 51% of drill holes over 3.0 g/t Au, and 31% over 10.0 g/t Au. While some assays aren’t as strong as previous, many are well located such that they extend strike, dip or provide new understanding of mineralization. VG is found in most holes, the zone is being extended, gaps are shrinking, and new structures are being identified. Management is thinking outside the box. New geological concepts are also being successfully tested. Significant gold may not just be found in typical quartz veins in sediments, but in rock types like gabbro and conglomerates as well. This opens up considerable potential to test areas not considered in the past. We are also pleased that base-of-till (BoT) sampling continues. This exploration method has been successful at finding mineralization below glacial overburden that covers much of the property. One key area is an interpreted mafic-ultramafic contact that trends for kilometers, like the one that hosts the nearby, potentially multi-million oz, Ikarri discovery.
