orfg_logo1_200x72 Orofino Gold Corp. (ORFG)

Orofino Gold Corp. has been working with Colombian utilities supplier Electricaribe to establish power to the villages of the local populations within Orofino's concessions. Buena Sena was supplied with electricity in July of 2010. And by mid May, Orofino expects to have complete electrical service established at La Azul.
La Azul's connection is coming from an intermediate station operating at 13,200 cycles/second located in the town of Rio Viejo. Once operational, La Azul's infrastructure is expected to initially be tied into a 50 kva transformer.

"When the power connection was established in Buena Sena last year, it was a very important date for that community," explains Orofino President and CEO, Mr. Ary F. Pernett Marquez. "Imagine what it would be like to have publicly supplied electricity for the first time in your life. We're excited that the residents and miners of La Azul will also be getting the benefits of such a vital piece of infrastructure."

In addition to providing a critical piece of infrastructure to promote growth of La Azul village, Orofino expects the connection to the region's power grid to significantly improve production capabilities of mine workers. As current production is being performed with outdated equipment powered only by generators, connecting La Azul to the region's power grid will enable Orofino to introduce modern mining equipment and technology.

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.

Gold conducts electricity, does not tarnish, is very easy to work, can be drawn into wire, can be hammered into thin sheets, alloys with many other metals, can be melted and cast into highly detailed shapes, has a wonderful color and a brilliant luster.

Orofino Gold Corp. has several Gold development properties in Colombia, a current hot spot of gold production in the world markets. Orofino Gold Corp. is a Colombia based gold producer founded as a private company in 2009 by former executives with over 50 cumulative years in mining exploration, finance, and development expertise. Orofino's corporate objective is to continue to build shareholder value through the exploration and development of Senderos de Oro and additional accretive acquisitions, capitalizing on the extensive experience and relationships that management has developed over the past 25 years.
