Oromin Explorations Ltd TSX:OLE announced assays from its OJVG Gold Project in eastern Senegal, West Africa. Results include 10.03 g/t gold over 2 metres, 8.06 g/t over 14 metres, 43.76 g/t over 1 metre, 6.77 g/t over 7 metres, 4.91 g/t over 37 metres (including 11.43 g/t over 9 metres), 6.94 g/t over 4 metres, 8.91 g/t over 5 metres, 4.01 g/t over 12 metres, 3.79 g/t over 18 metres, 3.15 g/t over 11 metres and 2.91 g/t over 25 metres.
President/CEO Chet Idziszek commented, “The first three months of 2011 have proven to be extremely busy and exciting for our company. Although we are nearing completion of mineral resource updates on nine deposits, our ongoing resource expansion drill program is continuing with great success. New results from the Golouma South and Kerekounda deposits have confirmed down dip depth continuity of mineralization from surface to 450 and 550 metres respectively, which remains open to further expansion. Drilling has also confirmed three new discoveries at Saboraya, Kourouloulou South and Golouma West Extension, all of which are in close proximity to the main Golouma Deposits. Furthermore, results from column leach test-work being conducted for the heap leach preliminary economic assessment have provided favourable recoveries which should enhance this new opportunity. We are also pleased that the government of Senegal has recently granted OJVG an additional year of tax holiday increasing the period from seven years to eight.”
