orfg_logo203x87 Orofino Gold Corp. (ORFG.PK)

Orofino Gold Corp. engages in acquisition, exploration, and development of gold properties in Mexico and Colombia. Orofino Gold has an option to acquire properties in the Sur de Bolivar Department of Colombia South America.

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 vein systems comprised of high grade chalcopyrite, galena and sphalerite with pyrite in quartz veins.

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.

Exploration Potential – La Azul and San Carlos Programs
Senderos de Oro Area

Geologically similar to Angostura and Ventana but higher grade, open at depth and to the west toward La Azul.

The observed metallogenic zonation around Senderos de Oro evokes a very viable "hidden porphyry" exploration model. Based upon exploration carried out to date, it is clear that the area hosts significant resources of gold, copper and silver, which, facilitated by the current database and favorable topography, has generated excellent "fast-trackable" bulk-tonnage or high-grade underground Au-Ag-Cu exploration targets.

La (Mina) Azul/La Estrella

Assays of copper-gold samples ran in excess of 40g/t gold, and contain up to 8% copper, bornite and cholcopyrite.

The interpretation and the prospectivity of this concession has been confirmed by an ORFG Qualified Person (as described by the 43-101 compliant standard).

The area is the site of economic mining activity and it is unlikely that the true grade of gold mineralization has been determined by the crude benefication methods employed by the resident miners.

The existing process of using mercury amalgamation to collect the free gold after grinding, followed by cyanide leach of the crushed material would not, for example, liberate gold tied up in the sulphides.

San Carlos - Senderos de Oro Area

Geologically similar to Angostura and Ventana but higher grade, open at depth and to the west toward La Azul.

The observed metallogenic zonation around Senderos de Oro evokes a very viable "hidden porphyry" exploration model. Based upon exploration carried out to date, it is clear that the area hosts significant resources of gold, copper and silver, which, facilitated by the current database and favorable topography, has generated excellent "fast-trackable" bulk-tonnage or high-grade underground Au-Ag-Cu exploration targets.

Gold's Usefulness as a safe haven:

The geo-political and world economic structure is currently undergoing major change-some have even called the situation an "upheaval." This means that the investment outlook, particularly for certain parts of the world, is more unpredictable than usual. Under these circumstances, it is logical to conclude that certain investment portfolios should include real (non-paper) assets such as commodities for protection against a potential decline in the paper markets.

Orofino Gold Corp. is an International gold company focused on the acquisition, exploration and development of gold properties in Mexico and Colombia. ORFG has reviewed several bulk minable properties and has signed an option to acquire properties in the Sur de Bolivar Department of Colombia South America.

American Video Teleconferencing Corp. (OTCPK:AVOT)

American Video Teleconferencing Corp. recently announced that it has signed an option agreement to acquire two claim blocks in townships of Mekinac and Lajuene, Province of Quebec. These claim blocks are approximately 3600 acres in total and are located 120 miles east of Montreal P.Q. and 50 miles north of Three Rivers P.Q. They are accessible year round with infrastructure in the immediate vicinity. The claims adjoin a property that had one of the highest readings of Rare Earths in North America. Sampling in the 1950s gave readings of 48% combined Cerium, Lanthanum, Neoymium and Yttrium. That property has remained dormant for over 50 years but the new owners plan an extensive exploration program this fall.

AVOT, after a lengthy search and after careful due diligence, believes this is going to be one of the most active areas for Rare Earths exploration and our holdings are in the same geological setting as the 48% Rare Earths showing. Rare Earths are in huge demand especially in the United States as China is closing off its exports of these strategic metals to less than 5% of its production.

AVOT will aggressively continue to search world wide for opportunities in Precious, Base and Rare Earths metal projects.
