Santiago, Chile and Las Vegas, Nevada, December 15, 2017 – Cerro Dorado, Inc. (Cerro) (OTCMKTS: CDCH) is pleased to announce that it has purchased all of AURYN Mining Chile SpA’s mining concessions in a stock for property transaction.

Prior to the purchase agreement being exercised Cerro issued 38,380,936 common shares to satisfy its $300,000 debt to AURYN Holdings Corporation.  This resulted in Cerro having 350 million shares outstanding, no debt, and a 5% equity interest in AURYN Mining Chile SpA.  The Cerro Board of Directors increased its authorized share count to 7 billion shares and paid AURYN Mining Chile SpA 6.65 billion common shares and its 5% interest in AURYN for all AURYN’s mining claims.
