Aurion Resources Ltd. ("Aurion") (TSX VENTURE: "AU") is pleased to report that prospecting and reconnaissance mapping has resulted in the discovery of new, bonanza grade gold mineralization on its 100% owned Risti Project in Northern Finland.
An 1150 m long by 700m wide area ("Aurora Zone") of gold mineralization with an apparent NE-SW trend was discovered in late 2016. Here, 133 rock grab samples collected from predominantly large and angular sub-cropping quartz-tourmaline blocks assayed from nil to 1563.5 g/t Au, including 36 samples which assayed greater than 31 g/t Au (1 ounce per tonne). The average grade of all 133 samples is 74.3 g/t Au. Many of these samples contain abundant coarse visible gold. Numerous quartz blocks within this trend are > 1 m in at least one dimension and locally reach up to 3.5 m by 3 m by 1 m in size.
