Orofino Gold Corp. (ORFG.PK) has several Gold properties in Colombia, a current hot spot of gold production in the world markets. Geologically it looks the same and local well informed geologists say it’s model is bigger, broader widths and longer strike.

La Azul (formerly La Estrella) is an artisanal gold production mine in the Senderos de Oro area controlled by Orofino. La Azul is composed of a mixed sequence of predominantly volcanic rocks featuring vein systems comprised of high grade chalcopyrite, galena and sphalerite with pyrite in quartz viens.

It has been interpreted that the metallogenic zonation around the La Azul workings evokes a very viable “hidden porphyry” exploration model (Shaw, 1995). This interpretation and the prospectivity of the area have been confirmed by the Orofino “qualified person” as per the 43-101 rules.

As an already-producing mine, Orofino has begun moving aggressively to confirm the current mineralogical interpretations, fast-tracking analysis work with a goal of beginning drilling within the year. La Azul features numerous geological similarities to Greystar’s Angostura project and Ventana’s La Bodega project, but La Azul is suspected to be of a higher grade and more easily accessible.

Current infrastructure in the area is reasonably developed and includes electric power, road accessibility, and readily available water. In addition, the region is home to a skilled workforce.

The nearest major city is Bucaramanga, a city with a population of approximately 1.2 million people, making it the sixth largest city (by population) in the country. Travel time from Bucaramanga is approximately two hours utilizing an established road system.

In addition, the property contains an air strip in need of reclamation. The strip is suitable for moderate-sized aircraft (DC-3, Twin otter), and flights from Medellin would take an estimated 50 minutes.

The elevation of the property ranges from 75 to 375 meters, enabling year-round work.
