Aurora Gold Corporate Update (March 2014)


Published on

Aurora Gold Corporation (OTCQB: ARXG) is an American listed mineral exploration company focusing on exploration and development in the Tapajos Gold Province, State of Para, Brazil.
Aurora holds tenements in a strategic land package of 4 exploration licenses and 2 applications covering approximately 16,500 hectares. The tenements are grouped together and referred to as the Săo Domingos project.
The two applications are strategically located around the Săo Domingos and the adjoining Atacadau projects to unify the whole area and create a strategic land package. In February 2012 a new occurrence, named Toucano, located in the same vicinity as the Fofoca area containing an inferred JORC compliant resource of 130,000 ounces @ 2 g/t, contains a series of areas delineated as having potential to host significant mineralisation.
