AURYN CONFIRMS AGE OF MINERALIZING INTRUSIVES AT SOMBRERO DISTRICT EQUIVALENT TO MAJOR DEPOSITS IN THE ANDAHUAYLAS-YAURI BELT
Auryn Resources Inc. has identified the age of the intrusives directly associated with mineralization at the Sombero copper-gold skarn project in Peru. Based on results from five uranium-lead samples obtained from diorite sills at the Ccascabamba and Nioc targets, ages range from 38.85 million to 40.47 million years. This places the mineralization within the same Eocene-aged metallogenic event that produced several world-class deposits in the Andahuaylas-Yauri belt, such as Las Bambas. It also establishes that the belt extends over 100 kilometres to the west, where the Sombrero project is located.
