Orosur Mining provides La Esfinge prospect sampling update

Global Mining Review,

Orosur Mining Inc. has announced the results from its first reconnaissance geochemical soil sampling programme at the La Esfinge prospect at El Pantano, Argentina.

The programme has returned highly anomalous results in gold and several other pathfinder elements, over a 3.3 km strike length of the target, with moderate level anomalism over an additional 3.4 km of the target.

Gold anomalism in soil samples have returned results in excess of 100 ppb Au across the western half of the La Esfinge target, with highly significant anomalies from other elements such as Arsenic (As), Silver (Ag), Bismuth (Bi), Indium (In) and Copper (Cu), across the entire length of the target of almost 7 km.

Brad George, Orosur CEO, comments:

“While preliminary and reconnaissance in nature, these positive results are highly encouraging from a first pass programme on a virgin prospect. We targeted La Esfinge not only because of its positive geological indicators, but also its very large size. To now see geochemical anomalism along almost the entire 8 km strike gives us much to work with moving forward.”
