Auryn discovers over 1.8km strike length of new gold-in-soil anomalies at Huilacollo
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Jan. 31, 2017) -Auryn Resources Inc. (TSX:AUG)(OTCQX:GGTCF) ("Auryn" or the "Company") is pleased to provide an exploration update from it's Huilacollo epithermal gold oxide project in the Tacna province of Peru. Two new gold-in-soil anomalies were defined in the southern half of the project area that are 1300 meters by 250 meters and 550 meters by 150 meters, respectively (see figure 1). These anomalies are in addition to the existing known mineralization located in the northwest portion of the project.
Chief Geologist and COO Michael Henrichsen commented, "The discovery of the new gold-in-soil anomalies in the southern half of the project supports our initial impressions as to the potential for a significant oxide gold discovery on the project. Our highly experienced technical team believes that together, the northern and southern gold systems share some of the characteristics of productive oxide gold systems similar to deposits that they have observed globally."
