May 09, 2011, 09:12 ET from Orofino Gold Corp.

MEDELLIN, Colombia, May 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Orofino Gold Corp. (OTCQB : ORFG) announces that it has requested Sepro Systems Corp. to assist in the design criteria to improve environmental sensitivity and maximize yield production and recoveries as it begins development at its Culo Alzado mine site in Sur de Bolivar, Colombia.

Canadian-based Sepro Systems Corp. is a leading supplier of state-of-the-art, environmentally sensitive mineral processing equipment for projects worldwide.

Recent permitting issues for Colombian based Gold projects due to environmental concerns from the Colombian government have made sustainable and environmentally conscious mining programs a top priority for many of the region's mining companies. Orofino's directors and management feel taking steps to ensure sustainability from the beginning of its exploration process is part of the company's responsibility to the local population and government. These steps will also better position the company for long-term development of its concessions thanks to a decreased environmental impact.

In addition to positioning Orofino for environmentally sustainable growth, installing Sepro equipment at its Culo Alzado mine site will also dramatically improve recoveries of minerals from current workings. Orofino intends to install new, state-of-the-art crushing, milling, and recovery systems in order to begin a regular sampling program as laid-out by the company's Qualified Person as described in the National Instrument 43-101. This equipment will enable Orofino to generate regular, up-to-date metallurgical and geological reports, improving knowledge of the composition of the producing concessions and increasing investor confidence.

Orofino Gold is a Colombian based gold producer, founded as a private company in 2009 by former executives with over 50 cumulative years in mining exploration, finance, and development expertise. Orofino's corporate objective is to continue to build shareholder value through the exploration and development of The Senderos de Oro Gold Camp and additional accretive acquisitions, capitalizing on the extensive experience and relationships that management has developed over the past 25 years.
