London, November 10th, 2020 . Orosur Mining Inc. ("Orosur" or the "Company") (TSX/AIM:OMI) , , announces that it has received the sum of US$582,170, from Minera Monte Águila S.A.S. ("Monte Águila") a Colombian company that is a 50:50 JV between Newmont Corporation ("Newmont") (NYSE:NEM, TSX:NEM) and Agnico Eagle Mines Limited ("Agnico") (NYSE:AEM, TSX:AEM), in connection with maintaining its earn-in rights pursuant to the Exploration Agreement with Venture Option over the Anzá project in Colombia (the "Exploration Agreement").

 

These funds meet Monte Águila's obligations under the Exploration Agreement for the 12-month period ending 6th September 2020, allowing it to continue exercising its phase 1 earn-in-rights.

 

These funds will be directed towards the Company's general working capital needs.

 

As previously announced, Monte Águila has already commenced funding year 3 of phase 1 of the Exploration Agreement which requires a minimum work commitment of US$4 million for the 12-month period commencing 7th September 2020.

 

Exploration field work underway

Following receipt of exploration funds as announced on 12th October 2020, the Company has commenced field activities at the Anzá project.  Work programs remain subject to the changing status of the Covid-19 pandemic in the local region, however thus far this has been managed without incident. The following major activities have been completed or are underway:

· A team of geologists and associated staff (health and safety, security, logistics, camp support etc) have been hired and mobilised to site.

· Communications and data IT infrastructure have been established to connect the camp to the Company's remote servers and data bases.

· Drilling contracts have been awarded, legal agreements are being completed and equipment and drilling personnel are about to mobilise.

· Environmental and community protocols are in place and all necessary communications established.

· Local staff have been recruited and work has been underway for some days in preparing drill access tracks and drill pads.

· Contracts for geophysical survey work are being finalised and equipment is being shipped into Colombia.

 

It is anticipated that one rig should commence operation within a week to 10 days, with a second rig to be mobilised soon after, once operations have commenced safely.

 

Exercise of options

The Company announces that it will issue 374,999 common shares of no par value ("Common Shares") following the exercise of 374,999 options at an average exercise price of CAD 0.154 by a former non-executive director of the Company.

 

The Company has received a total amount of CAD$57,750 for such exercise.

 

Application will be made for the 374,999 Common Shares, which will rank pari passu with the existing Common Shares in issue, to be admitted to trading on AIM and admission is expected to occur at 8:00am UK time on or around 13th November 2020 ("Admission").

Orosur CEO Brad George commented:

"It is testament to the skill and diligence of our South American staff that they have managed to gear up so quickly and so safely for a major field program amidst a global pandemic. Challenges remain, but we remain confident they can be met.  The first drilling program at Anzá in over three years is a major milestone for the Company, and the team is motivated and excited at the prospect.
