La Azul - Senderos de Oro Area

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.

ORFG will move ahead aggressively in the last quarter of 2010 to persue the current interpretations, work programs and drilling will begin soon.
