The Taunus deposit was previously owned and operated by Eldorado Gold from 1995 until 1998 when it was closed due to solution management matters and a low gold price. At the time it was known as the La Trinidad mine. Oro acquired the deposit in 2005 and by drilling the deposit to a depth of approximately 200 meters below surface, identified previously unknown gold mineralisation. Due to the brecciated nature of the rocktypes in the deposit area, including the mineralized material, a drilling technique known as sonic drilling was initiated in late 2010, and continued through September 2011. This drilling style was used in order to achieve maximum core recovery. This process is slow and costly but achieves the desired effect with depth limitations.
