Aurigin is a mining and exploration company currently focused on the exploration and development of gold properties in highly prospective and underexplored regions in both Ethiopia and Tanzania.


Aurigin owns a 100% stake in one license made of four blocks - Ashashire-Dul, Menghe, Agusha West and Agusha East - totaling 402km2 in Western Ethiopia.


The Handeni district in Tanzania, though relatively unexplored to date, hosts a known gold-bearing belt where mineral deposits have been identified by artisanal miners.

Aurigin acquired a 92% stake in undeveloped properties totalling 200km² in this area, through its wholly owned subsidiary Dhahabu Resources, in January 2010 and has undertaken significant exploration to date.
