AuRo Discovers New Target at Arboledas In the
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 22, 2012)
- AuRo Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:ARU)(FRANKFURT:NXP3)
(the "Company" or "AuRo") is pleased to
announce that it has discovered a new target at its
Arboledas Gold Project. This new target covers an area of
approximately 2kms x 1km and will be the focus of detailed
mapping and soil sampling to define drilling targets. The
remainder of the property continues to be evaluated and
will be subject to geologic mapping, rock and stream
sediment sampling to define targets for detailed follow-up.
All of the areas within the Arboledas project are below the
3200 metres "Paramo" limit for exploration.
The Company's field crews have mobilized and begun
detailed mapping and sampling on its Arboledas project
located 15 kms north of the California-Vetas district, host
of EBX Groups La Bodega multi-million ounce underground
gold discovery, and EcoOros Angostura underground gold
deposits as well as new discoveries reported by Galway
Resources, CB Gold and Calvista Resources.
The Arboledas gold property consists of four concession
areas that total approximately 14,077 hectares. The area of
the project is located within the Santander massif and is
underlain by late Proterozoic gneisses and schists overlain
by weakly deformed Jurassic sediments and minor volcanics.
Cretaceous to Tertiary age intrusives also occur and may be
related to gold mineralization. A series of north
north-east trending faults cross the property. This
structural orientation is also known to control the gold
mineralization in the California-Vetas district.
Previous mapping and reconnaissance by the company was
focused on the western part of the property. An area of
artesinal mining consisting of a number of adits on
north-south trending quartz-pyrite veins was located at the
headwaters of Ventanas creek and eight adits were located.
During subsequent visits the presence of silicified and
pyrite-bearing leucogranite to monzonite was observed.
Anomalous gold values between 0.3 and 0.46 grams/tonne
(g/t) Au were identified in quartz veins hosted by these
intrusive rocks. Gold values as high as 8.43 g/t Au and
silver values up to 14.5 g/t were reported previously. In
addition, a large area of quartz stock-work in leucocratic
float was located in the north area of the concession.
