Aurion Resources Ltd announced that a new zone of gold mineralization has been discovered in bedrock at Risti. The "YNot" Prospect is located approximately 3.6 km Northwest of Aamurusko and comprises an east-west trending zone of quartz veins and associated extensional/stockwork veining hosted by siliceous sandstone. Mechanical trenching has exposed a zone of quartz vein hosted gold mineralization in bedrock up to 10 m wide over a distance of 260 m, open in both directions. Individual quartz veins are up to 1.0 m wide and numerous 1 cm to 10 cm wide extensional quartz veins occur peripherally to the larger shear veins. They are variably mineralized with pyrite, chalcopyrite, iron oxides and locally coarse visible gold.

A total of 39 surface rock chip or grab samples collected from angular boulders assayed from nil to 705.0 g/t Au including 10 samples that assayed greater than 5.0 g/t Au. The average grade of all samples was 30.77 g/t Au and the median grade was 0.68 g/t Au (i.e., half the samples assayed higher and half assayed lower than the median grade). Grab samples of angular boulders assaying 23.9 and 23.5 g/t Au were also discovered approximately 180 and 750 m Southwest and East of YNot trenches, respectively. Note that grab samples are selective and thus are not necessarily representative of the mineralization hosted elsewhere on the property.
