Prospect generator Aurion Resources has uncovered gold-rich subcrop within a 700 by 1,100 metre (1.1 km) wide area at its Risti project in northern Finland’s Central Lapland Greenstone Belt a region that is geologically similar to the gold-prolific belts of Ontario and Quebec.

Out of the 133 rock samples collected from quartz-tourmaline blocks at surface, 36 assayed greater than 31 g/t gold. Many of the blocks reported were larger than 1 metre, locally reaching up to 3.5 km by 3 km by 1 metre.

“There’s spectacular visible gold though the whole trend, and that’s what makes it so exciting. The abundance, size and coarse angularity gives us a pretty good confidence there’s a substantial system laying underneath, we just have to prove it with drilling,” Mike Basha, Aurion’s president and CEO, tells The Northern Miner.
