Aurora Gold Corporation Announces Initial Drilling Results From the Attacadau Gold Occurrence on the Sao Domingos Gold Propertyadmin
Aurora Gold Corporation (the “Company,” “Aurora Gold”) (OTCBB: ARXG) (FRANKFURT: A4G) (XETRA: A4G) (BERLIN: A4G), a mineral exploration company focusing on exploration and development in the Tapajos Gold Province, State of Parã¡, Brazil, is pleased to announce the initial drilling results from the first drill hole at the Attacadau gold occurrence on the Sao Domingos gold property, and significant soil anomaly from the Santa Isabel property.
Current drilling on the Sao Domingos property targeting an extensive soil and rock chip anomaly has intersected gold mineralisation in the first hole. Results are tabulated below.
6m @ 1.31 g/t Gold from 29m 2m @ 1.09 g/t Gold from 57m
8m @ 1.19 g/t Gold from 73m
The gold mineralisation in the first hole confirms the potential for the Attacadau occurrence and Aurora Gold is now in a position to continue testing the anomaly further along strike. Reassessment of the anomaly shows it to strengthen to the North West and Aurora Gold has prepared the area for drill testing in the coming days. The drilling will now target an extension of the mineralisation form the first hole along strike. Based on the soil sampling results it appears the mineralised halo increases in grade and width as it is traced NE from the current intersections.
Gold mineralisation has been intersected in several zones through the first drill hole and has now given the geologists a much better understanding of the subsurface geometry of the mineralised portion of this structure. The geologists feel this is the weakest part of the mineralised structure based on the geochem results and anticipate it to strengthen to the NW. The Company will now look to extend the drilling campaign and target this structure along strike.
The company is also pleased to outline the results of soil geochemistry at the Santa Isabel Property. Results show a very high-grade 400m anomaly grading +2g/t in soils with other assays at +1 g/t in soils over a strike length of several hundred meters. Aurora Gold is planning to mobilise drilling equipment to the area to test the depth and strike potential of the anomaly. Aurora Gold is also confident that drilling will reveal high-grade mineralisation over several hundred meters.
