VANCOUVER — Prospect generator Aurion Resources
(TSXV: AU) has uncovered gold-rich subcrop within a 700 by 1,100 metre (1.1 km) wide area at its Risti project in northern Finland’s Central Lapland Greenstone Belt (CLGB), a region that is geologically similar to the gold-prolific belts of Ontario and Quebec.
Out of the 133 rock samples collected from quartz-tourmaline blocks at surface, 36 assayed greater than 31 g/t gold. Many of the blocks reported were larger than 1 metre, locally reaching up to 3.5 km by 3 km by 1 metre.
“There’s spectacular visible gold though the whole trend, and that’s what makes it so exciting. The abundance, size and coarse angularity gives us a pretty good confidence there’s a substantial system laying underneath, we just have to prove it with drilling,” Mike Basha, Aurion’s president and CEO, tells The Northern Miner
by phone from his home in St. John’s, Newfoundland.
