ALORO MINING CORP. (the 'Company or Aloro') is pleased to announce that Alamos Gold Inc. ('Alamos') has informed Aloro that after a short break and evaluation it has resumed its reconnaissance drill exploration program on the Los Venados claims, Mulatos District, Sonora Mexico.
Alamos' current drill program is focusing on the low sulfidation epithermal gold mineralized area to the north where gold mineralization at surface has been identified. The drilling will be following up on the regional mapping and new sampling programs performed by the Alamos geologists, as well as initial exploration programs and data collected by Aloro. The Alamos geological team continues with detailed mapping and sampling of the Los Venados #1 and #2 concessions. Alamos has already exceeded its first year exploration expenditure commitment.
Alamos has the option to acquire a 70% interest from Aloro by incurring an aggregate of USD$5,000,000 in exploration expenditures and making certain cash payments over the course of three years in two mining concessions, commonly known as the Los Venados Project located in the Municipality Sahuaripa, in the State of Sonora, Mexico.
As the operator, Alamos will be conducting the exploration on the Los Venados Project until a participation level is attained.
Thomas A. Doyle, President, CEO, stated 'We are very pleased with Alamos' thorough exploration program to date on the Los Venados Project.
