MANITOBA – There may be over oz of contained gold in all categories at the Maverick gold project, that includes the former Puffy Lake mine and the adjacent Nokomis property. The property, located 50 km northeast of Flin Flon, is owned by Auriga Gold of Toronto.

Auriga divides the resource into pit and underground material. In the pit, using a 0.06 g/t cut-off, indicated resources are 242,000 tonnes at 4.16 g/t Au and the inferred portion is 78,000 tonnes at 3.81 g/t. Mineralized material that could be recovered using underground methods totals 944,000 tonnes grading 5.73 g/t Au in the indicated category and an additional 3.0 million tonnes at 5.61 g/t in the inferred category.

The company is updating and expanding the resources at the Marverick project with the intention of bringing the Puffy Lake gold mine back into production. Follow the project at www.AurigaGold.ca.
