Aurion Resources Ltd announced that it has received assays from an additional 9 holes drilled at the Aamurusko Northwest prospect on its wholly owned Risti Project in northern Finland. These holes are follow-up to drill results reported on September 5th and June 26th, 2019, which included 13.31 grams per tonne Au over 19.54 metres in drill hole AMI 9095 and 10.60 g/t Au over 3.40 m in drill hole AMI 9097. Mr Mike Basha, President and CEO, said "We are very pleased with our continued success at Aamurusko NW. Drilling has demonstrated continuity of the high-grade mineralized zones and intersecting quartz veins in excess of 5 m wide speaks to the robust nature and potential of this gold bearing system. We have only scratched the surface of this target but believe we have defined a significant zone of mineralization. We have since moved the drill rig to Aamurusko Main, where we expect to have similar success."


Drill hole AM19106 intersected 23.41 g/t Au over 11.10m
including 51.95 g/t over 4.15 m, which includes 202.00 g/t Au over 0.50 m

Drill hole AM19109 intersected 6.84 g/t Au over 19.00 m
including 76.03 g/t Au over 1.50 m

Drill hole AM19105 intersected 16.17 g/t Au over 4.00 m
including 109.00 g/t Au over 0.58 m

Wide zones of disseminated and stringer mineralization accompany auriferous quartz veins up to 5.45 m wide

To date, at Aamurusko N W, twenty-four of twenty-seven drill holes (89%) intersected gold mineralization and twelve of twenty-four intersected 15 g/t Au or higher

Mineralization remains open along strike and to depth at Aamurusko NW

Aurion's exploration program is fully funded through 2020
