Auryn Resources Inc announced that it has gained access to drill core from 8 historical drill holes totaling 988 meters of drilling from the Fierrazo target at its Sombrero Project in Southern Peru. The historical drilling was conducted in 2013 by a supplier of concession-holder Corporacion Aceros Arequipa SA, an established Peruvian steel company, that was focusing on iron skarn mineralization. The drilling ranged in depths from 51 meters to 217 meters, and is in the area where Auryn recently sampled 232 meters of 0.55% of copper equivalent (0.47% copper and 0.13 g/t gold) on surface.

A Message from Michael Henrichsen, COO & Chief Geologist: “We are looking forward to receiving the assay results of the historical drill core as it is from the well-mineralized area of Fierrazo where Auryn recently completed surface channel sampling. The results from this core will provide a critical first look at the third dimension of mineralization at the Sombrero project and will rapidly advance our technical teams understanding of the controls of copper - gold mineralization within the project."
