********************* Orofino Gold Corp. (ORFG)

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 Gold'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.

Orofino Gold Corp. President Ary Pernett and Vice President of Development Alfonso Calderon of Orofino Gold Corp. (ORFG) hosted investors interested in a firsthand look at the company's Senderos de Oro projects. These visits come as investors consider the financial commitments necessary to fund exploration and provide modern mining techniques and equipment to the area.

The group spent four days in Colombia during which they had an opportunity to tour Orofino's active mine sites at La Azul, Culo Alzado, and Buena Sena. The visit offered investors an opportunity to observe current artisanal gold production, and an in-person view of Colombia's revitalized foreign investment opportunities and stability. Following this site visit, Orofino's directors and investors are expected to prepare for the company's future funding and development needs as it continues to expand exploration at Senderos de Oro.

Special properties of gold make it perfect for manufacturing jewelry. These include: very high luster; desirable yellow color; tarnish resistance; ability to be drawn into wires, hammered into sheets or cast into shapes. These are all properties of an attractive metal that is easily worked into beautiful objects.

Orofino's strategy to become a recognized player in the Colombia mining sector began with the acquisition of the La Azul/La Estrella property in the Senderos de Oro region of Colombia; a Northern extension of South America's highly mineralized Andes Mountain Range. Development of this property has included acquisition of concessions for the surrounding lands, including adding the San Carlos and Culo Alzado properties, detailed analysis of historic geological and cultural records of the area, and regular mineral analysis of newly obtained resource samples. In addition, Orofino has acquired a database comprised of exploration and mining results from previous operators who left as a result of pre-21st century regional civil and economic instability.

Biomass is a renewable form of energy. Renewable simply means the rate of consumption and resource replacements are equal. Fossil fuels for example are a form of non renewable energy, as our rate of consumption far outweighs the rate of resource replacement. With an increasing global population, and efforts to improve the standard of living for many developing countries, our energy requirements will easily double over the next ten to twenty years. Building our energy future on fossil fuels, is a non-sustainable activity and can only support our energy demands in the short term. Biomass and other renewable energy technologies such as wind, solar and wave are needed to power our future.
