Auryn Samples up to 31.6 g/t Gold and 5.25% Copper in the Ferrobamba limestone at Sombrero

[Translate to Englisch:] Veranschaulicht die 650 und 200 Meter langen Trends der Gold- und Kupfermineralisierung in Jaspisadern innerhalb der Ferrobamba-Kalksteinformation. Die mineralisierten Jaspisadern werden als Leckagenstrukturen aus der interpretierten zugrunde liegenden Mineralisierung entlang des Zielgebiets betrachtet.

[Translate to Englisch:] Veranschaulicht die neu erworbenen 11.000 Hektar im Osten und angrenzend an das Sombrero-Projekt, basierend auf positiven geochemischen Signaturen aus Stromsedimenten im Kupfer-Zink-Molybdän-Porphyr-Stil.

Vancouver, British Columbia – October 15, 2018 – Auryn Resources Inc. (TSX: AUG, NYSE AMERICAN: AUG, “Auryn” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce more favorable results from its Sombrero project in southern Peru following a rock sampling program focused on the Ferrobamba limestone. The Company has also staked an additional 11,000 hectares to the east and contiguous to its Sombrero North claims as a result of prospective sampling.

A Message from Michael Henrichsen, C.O.O. and Chief Geologist:

“The presence of significant zones of gold-copper bearing jasperoid veins within the Ferrobamba limestone shows that there is mineralization on both sides of the contact zone. This is an important line of evidence that validates our premise that a significant copper-gold skarn body could exist within the 3.5-km-long target zone.”

Rock sampling has defined two separate mineralized jasperoid zones that are 650 meters and 200 meters in length respectively (Figure 1). These rock samples are taken from a series of 1 – 2 meter-wide jasperoid veins that collectively define the two areas of gold and copper mineralization within the limestone. The mineralized jasperoid veins are considered as leakage structures from interpreted underlying mineralization situated along the target zone.

The additional 11,000 hectares the Company staked are based on positive stream sediment results that have defined a series of anomalous drainage basins. Collectively, these drainage basins illustrate two separate porphyry-style anomalies that are defined by copper – molybdenum – zinc geochemical signatures (Figure 2).

Results from the rock samples are presented in Table 1.

* Approximately 2-3kg of material was collected for analysis and sent to ALS Lab in Lima, Peru for preparation and analysis. All samples are assayed using 30g nominal weight fire assay with ICP finish (Au-ICP21) and multi-element four acid digest ICP-AES/ICP-MS method (ME-MS61). Where ICP21 results were > 3 g/t Au the assay were repeated with 30g nominal weight fire assay with gravimetric finish (Au-GRA21). Where MS61 results were greater or near 10000 ppm Cu, 10000ppm Pb or  100ppm Ag the assay were repeated with ore grade four acid digest method (Cu-OG62). QA/QC programs for 2018 rock samples using lab duplicates, standards and blanks indicate good accuracy and precision in a large majority of standards assayed.

About Auryn
Auryn Resources is a technically driven junior mining exploration company focused on delivering shareholder value through project acquisition and development. The Company’s management team is highly experienced with an impressive track record of success and has assembled an extensive technical team as well as a premier gold exploration portfolio. Auryn is focused on scalable high-grade gold deposits in established mining jurisdictions, which include the Committee Bay and Gibson MacQuoid gold projects located in Nunavut, the Homestake Ridge gold project in British Columbia and a portfolio of gold projects in southern Peru, through Corisur Peru SAC.

About Sombrero

This project consists of the North Sombrero and South Sombrero properties, comprising approximately 100,000 mineral claims owned or optioned by Auryn Resources. The copper-gold Sombrero mining concessions are located 340 kilometers SE of Lima in southern Peru and are hosted in the Andahuaylas-Yauri belt. This belt is interpreted to be on the north-western margins of this Eocene-Oligocene aged copper-gold porphyry and skarn belt that hosts the Las Bambas, Haquira, Los Chancas, Cotambambas, Constancia, Antapaccay and Tintaya deposits. The project is characterized by a strong structural control and significant copper and gold values from historical surface samples. The principle targets at Sombrero are copper-gold skarn and porphyry systems and precious metal epithermal deposits.
