orfg_logo203x87 Orofino Gold Corp. (ORFG)

Orofino Gold Corp. is a Colombia-based gold producer with primary projects in the mineral-rich Senderos de Oro region of northern Colombia. Orofino's directors operate the company's two parallel growth strategies: continue development of existing properties and acquire additional mining assets.

Gold is a good reflector of both infrared and visible light, gold is used for the protective coatings on many artificial satellites. Gold flake is used on and in some gourmet sweets and drinks. Having no reactivity, gold adds no taste but is taken as a delicacy. Gold is used as a coating enabling biological material to be viewed under a scanning electron microscope.

Orofino Gold Corp. has begun opening various exploration adits and vertical shafts in the Culo Alzado mining area. These exploration shafts are within the same boundary area where geochemical anomalies were noted in the report by Robert P. Shaw, P.Geo, prepared in 1995 and recently released by Orofino, as well as the recently released technical report by Thomas H. Carpenter, P.Geo, prepared on behalf of Orofino Gold Corp.

The shafts are being developed along vertical veins roughly oriented on a northeast trajectory. They are in close proximity to nearby excavation projects artisanal miners have been successfully developing for more than 30 years. Initial work on these still-shallow areas has revealed vertical, mineralized veins of gold deposits. Early results from samples taken from the adits have shown in excess of 10 grams of gold per ton in veins up to one meter in width and open at depth. These promising shallow-depth results indicate the potential for higher grades of mineralization at deeper depths along the same axis. Orofino expects to provide further information from these early-stage explorations as information becomes available.

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.
