Auryn trenches 53m at 1.75g/t Au at the Sombrero Project, Peru
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Feb. 24, 2017) -Auryn Resources Inc. (TSX:AUG)(OTCQX:GGTCF) ("Auryn" or the "Company") is pleased to provide an exploration update from its Sombrero skarn-porhyry gold-copper oxide project located in southern Peru. Trenching results include 53 meters of 1.75g/t Au (including 14 meters of 5.23g/t Au) of oxide mineralization at the margin of a newly discovered 2.3 kilometer by 500 meter gold in soils anomaly (see Figure 1). True widths of these intervals have not yet been determined. In addition, the mineralized footprint of the Sombrero project was significantly expanded with selective grab samples returning up to 7.54g/t gold and 16.0 % copper in areas that have not been sampled historically (see Figure 2 and 3).
Chief Geologist and COO, Michael Henrichsen commented, "The results of our brief two week sampling campaign has expanded the known footprint of gold-copper mineralization to 4.5 kilometers by 4.2 kilometers which has increased the potential scalability of the mineralized system at Sombrero considerably. The discovery of high grade trench intercepts, cohesive gold in soil anomalies and newly identified mineralized skarn bodies within a limited area in the southern part of the project is an excellent start to our property wide exploration program planned for Q2, 2017."
