Deli Jovan was a very interesting prospect to us, but one we knew would require significant input prior to the commencement of drilling. I am delighted that the work involved in clearing and dewatering the shafts at Rusman and Gindusa has run to schedule and is now complete.

“It is pleasing that we have been able to complete both soil sampling and underground sampling/structural mapping programmes at the site within less than a year. We now await the results of the underground sampling which will guide our drilling operation. We will simultaneously be following up on our soil sampling programme, where we will further investigate the anomalies previously highlighted through a surface trenching programme.

“The foundations are in place to make 2012 another year of significant progress for Orogen. We look forward to updating shareholders with operational developments as work progresses.”
