Oromin makes new high-grade discovery at Sabodala gold project in Senegal

Oromin Explorations Ltd (TSX: OLE; OTCBB: OLEPF) said it made a new high-grade discovery during the ongoing step-out and in-fill drilling program at its Sabodala gold project in eastern Senegal.

Drilling at the new targets which is located 1 kilometre south of the recently discovered Kerekounda deposit intersected 12 metres of 10.20 grams per ton gold at hole RC-578, and hole RC-579 founds 12 metres of 23.53 g/t gold and 8 metres of 16.54 g/t gold.

Also, based on the present geometry, continuity and high-grade nature of results received to-date, Oromin views Kerekounda as an attractive, early-stage combined open pit and underground mining opportunity that will enhance and complement previously announced preliminary resources at the Masato, Golouma west and Golouma South gold deposits.

Oromin's further and ongoing 2009 drilling plans include an aggressive evaluation to expand the high-grade Kerekounda gold deposit, to outline and define oxide mineralization potential at various other known gold deposits, and to continue the systematic evaluation of other structural-geochemical targets throughout the Golouma-Kerekounda region.

The 2009 pre-feasibility study being undertaken by SRK Consulting is proceeding on schedule with metallurgical, hydrological, geotechnical, resource evaluation, infrastructure/site development, social and environmental programs under way and ongoing
