AUN: Central Sandstone Exploration Update

Aurumin’s Reverse Circulation (RC) and Diamond Drilling (DD) program’s first hole at its 100% owned Central Sandstone Gold Project has returned assay results.

The first hole was drilled as a pre-collar to a depth of 109.5m, and AUN used the diamond drilling tail to expand the hole to a depth of 582.5m. Tonalite intrusion was documented for 313 metres, with multiple evident gold deposits identified. After the main tonalite body was drilled, a mineralized basalt and tonalite hanging wall zone were also discovered.

The test findings indicated 344m @ 1.29g/t. Typically, grades exceeding 5g/t are considered high grades. However, there were some high-grade highlights at 16.1m @ 2.9g/t, but note that this was a large intersection.

AUN: Managing Director’s Remarks

According to Aurumin’s Managing Director Brad Valiukas, the company is pleased with the development of Sandstone. Discoveries are being made, and the 500koz Au Two Mile Hill underground deposit is being advanced with deep drills as they increase its tenement footprint.

From its first shot at Two Mile, they have got a fantastic score. After completing the 4th diamond drill hole and programme, they are eager to see what the future holds.

This subsurface deposit is still a significant portion of the project and has the potential to support future production.

AUN: What Next?

Aurumin intends to extend the exploration process. At Two Mile Hill, drilling is being done to expand and better define the current inferred underground Mineral Resource Estimate (MRE) of 14.2Mt @ 1.1g/t Au for 500koz Au. It seems like the company will be able to achieve significant findings as they acquired their exploration license a few weeks ago.
