Orofino Gold Corp. (ORFG.PK) is a US (Nevada) company established for the purpose of creating a significant exploration and mining group operating in Colombia.

Orofino has acquired a database comprised of exploration and mining results from previous operators who left when the global mining sector experienced a major downturn in the 1997-2000 time frame.

The second part of the Company’s strategy to become a recognized player in the Colombia mining sector was the acquisition of an interest in an operating mine. The Company has acquired a 55% interest in the La Azul/La Estrella property with the rights to acquire up to 80%.

La Azul is one producing artesanal mine in the Senderos de Oro area controlled by Orofino, it is a mixed sequence of predominantly volcanic rocks with the vien systems comprised of high grade chalcopyrite, galena and sphalerite with pyrite in quartz viens.

It has been interpreted (by Shaw 1993) that the metallogenic zonation around the La Azul workings evokes a very viable “hidden porphyry” exploration model. This interpretation and the prospectivity of the area have been confirmed by the Orofino “qualified person” as per the 43-101 rules.
