ORFG, Orofino Gold Corp., ORFG.PK

Although primarily used as a store of value, gold has many modern industrial uses including dentistry and electronics. Gold has traditionally found use because of its good resistance to oxidative corrosion and excellent quality as a conductor of electricity.

A total of 165,000 tonnes of gold have been mined in human history, as of 2009. This is roughly equivalent to 5.3 billion troy ounces or, in terms of volume, about 8,500 m³, or a cube 20.4 m on a side. The world consumption of new gold produced is about 50% in jewelry, 40% in investments, and 10% in industry.

Colombia is Latin America’s fifth largest producer of gold.

ORFG has several Gold development properties in Colombia, a current hot spot of gold production in the world markets.

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

The major criteria for selection of properties will include:

- Significant historical production

- Favorable geology for hosting major ore bodies

- Significant property area for large target exploration

- Recent results available

- Favorable infrastructure and access to allow mine development

- Receptive local government and populace.

In addition ORFG 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.

All properties meet the above criteria outlined above.

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. ORFG 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 ORFG, 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.

According to the company, ORFG will move ahead aggressively to persue the current interpretations, work programs and drilling will begin soon.
