(PresseBox) - Auryn Resources Inc. (TSX: AUG, NYSE American: AUG) (?Auryn? or the ?Company? -

The Company is currently upgrading existing road access into the project and plans to conduct geological and alteration mapping as well as a rock sampling program in order to define the epithermal and porphyry styles of mineralization that have been outlined by historical work. This program will concentrate on the newly acquired Sambalay and Salvador concessions, where historical sampling included up to 13.5% copper, 23.6 g/t gold and 14,180 g/t silver in a 2-kilometer by 3.3-kilometer quartz-sericite-pyrite alteration system (Figure 2).

Upon completion of this first phase of exploration, Auryn will initiate a second phase, consisting of ground-based magnetics and induced polarization geophysical surveys, across the main alteration zone. Auryn expects to apply for a drill permit for Curibaya in Q1 of 2020, with the aim of carrying out the first ever drill program on the property in Q4 of 2020.

A Message from Ivan Bebek, Executive Chairman & Director:

?We are very excited to begin advancing the Curibaya project as it represents another exceptional exploration opportunity for both precious and base metals. The project is situated within a belt that hosts world-class mines, and the historical sampling at Curibaya demonstrates that it has considerable high-grade silver, gold and copper on surface.

?This year we made significant progress in building and advancing our Peruvian portfolio through acquisitions, community programs, surface exploration and permitting. This groundwork is setting the stage for 2020, when we anticipate drilling Sombrero and Curibaya sequentially, creating continuous opportunities for tier-one discoveries.?

Michael Henrichsen (Chief Operating Officer), P.Geo is the QP who assumes responsibility for the technical contents of this press release.

About Auryn

Auryn Resources is a technically-driven, well-financed junior exploration company focused on finding and advancing globally significant precious and base metal deposits. The Company has a portfolio approach to asset acquisition and has seven projects, including two flagships: the Committee Bay high-grade gold project in Nunavut and the Sombrero copper-gold project in southern Peru. Auryn?s technical and management teams have an impressive track record of successfully monetizing assets for all stakeholders and local communities in which it operates.

About Curibaya

Auryn acquired 100% ownership of the Curibaya property in 2015 and the adjacent Sambalay and Salvador concesssions in 2019, which collectively consist of approximately 11,000 hectares. The Curibaya Project covers the regional Incapuquio fault zone and subsidiary structures, which are interpreted as one of the fundamental controls for both epithermal and porphyry styles of mineralization within the region.

Historic Grab Samples ? Sambalay and Salvador

The historic grab samples on Sambalay and Salvador were collected by Teck (2010-2011), Compania de Exploraciones Orion SAC (2010-2011) and Wild Acre Metals (2012-2013). Auryn has not conducted any due diligence on whether appropriate QA/QC protocols were followed in the collection of these samples, nor can it confirm their accuracy or repeatability.
