Auryn Resources commences trenching and submits drilling application on the Huilacollo Project, Peru

Here is the latest news out of Auryn today. While not market moving the Company continues to move forward with its significant exploration program this year. Starting the trenching at Huilacollo and submitting drill applications are all part of the process of exploration. I continue to believe that this project in Peru is being given very little value by the market but through my conversations with the team at Auryn they are very excited about what could come from upcoming drilling.

Make sure you read the Canada update as that is the next news I am expecting out of Auryn. There is a lot of assay results from Committee Bay that should be released as soon as they are received from the labs plus 7,000 meters of drilling at Homestake. If any of these holes hit the stock could get a nice bump.

… Here’s the news…

Vancouver, British Columbia – September 12th, 2017 – Auryn Resources Inc. (TSX: AUG, NYSE American: AUG “Auryn” or the “Company”)is pleased to announce that it has initiated extensive surface work at its Huilacollo Project located in Southern Peru in advance of an initial drill program excepted to commence in Q4, 2017.

The surface targeting work, which includes an aggressive trenching and soil survey program, commenced in the northern half of the Huilacollo project (see Figure 1). The goal of this program is to further define significant extensions to the existing gold mineralization in advance of drilling. This work commenced on the back of recently completed revised surface agreements with the local communities which provide long-term access to the project.

The Company has also submitted the required drill permit applications for the program. Once approved, the drill permit will allow for up to 20 drill pads and is designed to target resistivity highs and chargeability lows coincident with oxide gold mineralization (see Figure 1).

Michael Henrichsen C.O.O. and Chief Geologist commented, “We are very pleased that we were able to achieve long-term agreements with the two communities within the Huilacollo project area which will allow us to rapidly advance the project. We strongly believe there is excellent potential for additional oxide gold discoveries across the project area and are excited to be conducting our own systematic work programs as we move toward drilling.”

Other Peru updates:

Auryn is actively pursuing long-term surface rights agreements on the balance of its Peruvian Portfolio including the Sombrero and Baños del Indio properties. Once completed, extensive surface work will commence and in some properties resume, which will be followed by initial drill programs.

Canada update:

In Nunavut, the Company is expecting its second batch of Committee Bay results shortly followed by the geochemical surface results from its Gibson MacQuoid project (located approximately 100km northwest of Agnico Eagles’ Meliadine deposit).

At Homestake Ridge, Auryn has drilled at total of 7,000 meters to date in 15 drill holes along target structural corridors. The first batch of results is expected in the month of October.

Shawn Wallace, President and CEO, commented, “It’s a very exciting time for Auryn shareholders with drill results pending from two projects in Canada and soon from Peru. We believe the opportunity for discovery in Peru represents an exceptional opportunity for value creation and is a strong complement to our high-grade Committee Bay and Homestake projects.”

The Company has approximately $15 million in cash less immediate payables and is financed through the planned programs in 2017.

Michael Henrichsen, P.Geo, COO of Auryn, is the Qualified Person who assumes responsibility for the technical disclosures in this press release.

    Auryn sure has an exciting year ahead. On another note, Mexus Gold has finally started production. Looking to have better average grade than first thought too. A nice bonus.

      Ulf – Yes, I’m very constructive on how things are going now that Mexus is FINALLY in production. Their costs are going to blow away most of their competitors as they are lean & mean and have virtually no debt.

      The marketplace just doesn’t understand their strategy at this point, but that will change…

    Excelsior, one question. The low costs. Is there any reason to believe they will have changed much due to the delays we have seen? (I sound paranoid, I know). I suspect very soon Mexus will declare they are debt free. That should boost us. I do not know how their drill plans are once cash flow is big enough, but imagine the impact if they sink a few holes into the surface Julio vein and announce 5 oz of gold !!!
    Also very much looking forward to an update on the next mine San Felix. Next year, two mines producing. I will kick myself for not buying more, but there is a little thing called risk management of a portfolio, he he.
