To that end, a large IP survey is currently being planned along various sections of the Aragon Fault that have thus far been shown to be prospective from preliminary field observations. Planning and ground clearance is now underway, and it is hoped that work may commence in early August 2021.
Drilling Status and Planning
The Company is now nearing the end of its planned 9,500m drilling program that commenced in November 2020. At times up to five rigs were on site, however as the final hole of this program is currently underway, only one rig is now operating.
Once the final hole of this early program is complete, that remaining rig will remain on site and continue to drill at APTA to gradually expand this zone of mineralisation.
The primary objective of the Company's exploration program is to determine the potential of the Anzá land package to host a large gold mineralisation system. The first phase of drilling has successfully defined significant high grade gold mineralisation at APTA, and this will be gradually expanded with one rig. The next major phase of drilling will be targeted at identifying additional centres of mineralisation along the 20km strike of the Aragon Fault, and other anomalous zones.
Social and community clearance has been underway for some months in these new areas as part of the mapping and sampling programs. A component of which has been the assessment of access conditions and the likely need for improvement. Once targets have been finalised in the coming weeks, the required logistical work will commence to open up these areas for drilling activities.
Orosur CEO Brad George commented:
'While a long time coming, these drill results are spectacular and give us great comfort that Anzá has the potential to be a major gold system.
Further assays are expected in due course. We are now directing our teams to identifying the next drill targets - work that has so far shown great promise.'

About the Anzá Project
Anzá is a gold exploration project, comprising three exploration licences, four exploration licence applications, and several small exploitation permits, totalling 207.5km2 in the prolific Mid-Cauca belt of Colombia.
The Anzá Project is currently wholly owned by Orosur via its subsidiary, Minera Anzá S.A.
The project is located 50km west of Medellin and is easily accessible by all-weather roads and boasts excellent infrastructure including water, power, communications and large exploration camp.
The Anzá Project is subject to an Exploration Agreement with Venture Option dated September 7th, 2018, as announced on September 10th, 2018, (the 'Agreement') between Orosur's 100% subsidiary Minera Anzá S.A ('Minera Anzá') and Minera Monte Águila SAS ('Monte Águila'), a 50/50 joint venture between Newmont Corporation ('Newmont') /zigman2/quotes/205356474/composite NEM +1.00% /zigman2/quotes/211552405/delayed CA:NGT +0.13% , and Agnico Eagle Mines Limited ('Agnico') /zigman2/quotes/200957337/composite AEM +0.71% /zigman2/quotes/205100210/delayed CA:AEM -0.19% .
Qualified Persons Statement
The information in this news release was compiled, reviewed and verified by Mr. Brad George, BSc hons (Geology and Geophysics), MBA, Member of the Australian Institute of Geoscientists (MAIG), CEO of Orosur Mining Ltd and a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.
Orosur Mining staff follow standard operating and quality assurance procedures to ensure that sampling techniques and sample results meet international reporting standards.
Drill core is split in half over widths that vary between 0.3m and 2m, depending upon the geological domain. One half is kept on site in the Minera Anzá core storage facility, with the other sent for assay.
Industry standard QAQC protocols are put in place with approximately 20% of total submitted samples being blanks, repeats or Certified Reference Materials (CRMs).
Samples are sent to the Medellin preparation facility of ALS Colombia Ltd, and then to the ISO 9001 certified ALS Global laboratory in Lima, Peru.
30 gram nominal weight samples are then subject to fire assay and AAS analysis for gold with gravimetric re-finish for overlimit assays of >10g/t. ICP-MS Ultra-Trace level multi-element four-acid digest analyses is also undertaken for such elements as silver, copper, lead and zinc, etc.
Gold intersections are reported using a lower cut off of 0.3g/t Au over 3m.
