Auryn Samples High-Grade Silver and Gold over 4.5 km(2) at Curibaya

VANCOUVER, BC /  October 28, 2019 / Auryn Resources Inc. (TSX:AUG)(NYSE American:AUG) ("Auryn" or the "Company") is pleased to announce initial rock sampling results from the newly acquired Sambalay and Salvador concessions at the Company's 11,000 hectare Curibaya project located in the Tacna province in Southern Peru. High-grade mineralization was sampled throughout a 1.5 kilometer by 3 kilometer quartz - sericite - pyrite alteration system with more than 20 samples above 200 g/t silver and multiple results over 1,500 g/t silver and up to 7.67 g/t gold (Figures 1 & 2). The project is situated in a copper porphyry belt that hosts some of Peru's largest porphyry deposits, including Freeport McMoRan's Cerro Verde deposit, Southern Copper's Cuajone and Toquepala deposits and Anglo American's Quellaveco deposit.
 
A Message from Michael Henrichsen, C.O.O & Chief Geologist:
 
"The Curibaya project sits in the world-class Southern Peru copper porphyry belt and is adjacent to the Incapuquio fault zone that is a control on the copper porphyry and epithermal deposits in the region. The observed high-grade precious metal mineralization makes for a compelling intermediate sulphidation epithermal target in addition to the strong potential for porphyry and skarn mineralization at shallow depths.
 
"We look forward to rapidly advancing the project to drill-stage through geophysical surveys and continued mapping as well as receiving additional surface results."
