Orofino Gold Corp. (ORFG.PK)
Orofino Gold Corp. is a Colombian based gold producer, founded as a private company in 2009 by former executives with over 50 cumulative years in mining exploration, finance, and development expertise.
The company has several viable gold development properties in Colombia, Latin America's fifth largest producer of gold.
ORFG has projects such as La Azul, San Carlos and Culo Alzado.
The company's La Azul is one producing artesanal mine in the Senderos de Oro area controlled by Orofino, it is a mixed sequence of predominantly volcanic rocks with the vien systems comprised of high grade chalcopyrite, galena and sphalerite with pyrite in quartz viens.
*Chalcopyrite is a copper iron sulfide mineral that crystallizes in the tetragonal system. Chalcopyrite is the most important copper ore.
*Galena is the natural mineral form of lead(II) sulfide. It is the most important lead ore mineral. Galena is also an important ore mineral in the silver mining regions of Colorado, Idaho, Utah and Montana.
*Sphalerite is a mineral that is the chief ore of zinc. It consists largely of zinc sulfide in crystalline form but almost always contains variable iron. In the crystal structure, zinc and sulfur atoms are tetrahedrally coordinated. The structure is closely related to the structure of diamond. Crystals of suitable size and transparency have been fashioned into gemstones.
Gold is found in ores made up of rock with very small or microscopic particles of gold.
This gold ore is often found together with quartz or sulfide minerals such as Fool's Gold, which is a pyrite. These are called lode deposits.
Native gold is also found in the form of free flakes, grains or larger nuggets that have been eroded from rocks and end up in alluvial deposits (called placer deposits).
Such free gold is always richer at the surface of gold-bearing veins owing to the oxidation of accompanying minerals followed by weathering, and washing of the dust into streams and rivers, where it collects and can be welded by water action to form nuggets.
In late 2009, gold markets experienced renewed momentum upwards due to increased demand and a weakening US dollar.
On December 2, 2009, Gold passed the important barrier of US$1200 per ounce to close at $1215.
Gold further rallied hitting new highs in May 2010 after the European Union debt crisis prompted further purchase of gold as a safe asset.
On March 1, 2011, gold hit $1432.57, based on investor concerns regarding ongoing unrest in North Africa as well as in the Middle East.
Since April 2001 the gold price has more than tripled in value against the US dollar, prompting speculation that this long secular bear market has ended and a bull market has returned.
The Senderos de Oro Project is comprised of more than 3000 hectares of Gold and other mineral concessions in the minera mining area of central Sur de Bolivar.
The Project resembles the La Bodega and Vetas California Projects, currently being explored and developed by Canadian Exploration Company Ventana Gold, for which EBX recently extended an unsolicited tender offer of $1.3 Billion.
Orofino's corporate objective is to continue to build shareholder value through the exploration and development of The Senderos de Oro Gold Camp and additional accretive acquisitions, capitalizing on the extensive experience and relationships that management has developed over the past 25 years.
