Orofino Gold Corp. (ORFG.PK) is a China-based gold producer that focuses on discovery, acquisition, and expansion of mineral-rich resource deposits primarily in the Americas. Orofino currently operates producing mines in the Senderos de Oro area of Colombia, making it a neighbor of nearby Ventana Gold Corp’s proven La Bodega asset and Greystar Resources Ltd’s Angostura project. In addition, Orofino has rights to other lands in the gold-producing region totaling approximately 4,300 hectares as well as an option on a strong portfolio of other small producers and development/exploration assets in the region.

The rich history of gold in Colombia dates back to pre-Columbian times. Explorers from Europe traveled across the ocean in search of legendary South American riches, much of which were believed to be in the land that comprises what is modern-day Colombia. However, until recently, geographic and political conditions have prevented people and companies from fully leveraging the extent of the region’s rich mineralogical resources.

In the past decade, substantial investment by a pro-business, pro-mining government has enabled foreign investment in local lands. Orofino intends to responsibly leverage this change in local attitude by investing heavily in the local community and infrastructure. Future plans for the area include new commerce and housing infrastructure, as well as investments in education and public health.

Orofino Gold was founded as a private company in 2009 by former executives and management with over 50 years of combined mining exploration, finance, and development experience. Orofino’s corporate objective is to increase shareholder value through the continued development of existing projects and additional acquisitions of high-value mineral assets.


NATIONAL HEALTH PARTNERS, INC. (OTC:NHPR) is a leading national healthcare savings organization that provides unique discount healthcare membership programs to uninsured and underinsured people through a national healthcare savings network called “CARExpress.”

The uninsured pay more for care—and get less—than those with insurance. But when the uninsured cannot pay, health care providers shift those costs to those who can pay—those who have insurance coverage. This leads to higher premiums for those who buy their insurance on the individual market, as well as workers who get insurance for themselves and their families through their job.

The cost of health insurance depends on your age, the condition of your body (how healthy or unhealthy you are), where in the country you reside, your money earned, and what kind of job you have.

The need for affordable healthcare alternatives has never been more important.

National Health Partners offers its programs through a national healthcare savings network called CARExpress. NHPR provides its members with access to over 1,000,000 healthcare providers through its agreements with CareMark, Aetna Dental Access NetworkSM, Optum, Integrated Health, Three Rivers and International Med-Care, which are some of the largest and most prestigious national healthcare networks in the country. These providers represent more than 70% of all practicing doctors and surgeons, 65% of all acute care hospitals and 95% of all pharmacies in the United States.
