Auryn Mining Chile SpA (Auryn) is pleased to host Dr. Richard Sillitoe at the Alto de Lipangue from March 15, 2017 through March 19, 2017. Dr. Sillitoe is an independent international consultant and one of the world’s leading experts on epithermal gold systems and porphyry copper systems.
Auryn CEO, Maurizio Cordova, and consulting geologist, Dr. Raymond Jannas, will accompany Dr. Sillitoe as he reviews Auryn’s exploration data and tours the property. Dr. Sillitoe will produce an evaluation report of the Altos de Lipangue Mining District at Auryn’s request. This report is for internal purposes. It will provide Auryn’s team with a fuller understanding of the diverse geological structures found at the Altos de Lipangue and help place them within an historical regional context.
