Affinity Gold Corp. (AFYG.pk) has released a corporate update regarding the Company's progress over the previous 45 days as well as a look ahead to the coming months.
Since the prior Corporate Update released on August 18th, the Company has continued to take progressive steps towards meeting the core corporate goals set forth by President and CEO Mr. Corey Sandberg. "I continue to be pleased with the forward progress of Affinity and have become very excited about future opportunities as gold prices continue to make new all-time highs," he said.
On August 25th, the Company announced the appointment of Mr. Robert Miller as the new General Manager of the Company's Peruvian subsidiary.

A return visit to Peru is scheduled for late October in which Mr. Miller will lead Mr. Sandberg and a group of potential business partners from China on a tour of the Company's current and planned sites, which will include multiple stops in southeastern Peru.
The Company is also finalizing details on a mineral sampling program that is intended to be launched in early October.

The samples are intended to be submitted for assay testing and results are expected to be returned in late October.
Internally, the Company has continued to implement new governance policies at the parent and subsidiary level. Furthermore, on September 1st the Company announced the engagement of Hansen, Barnett, & Maxwell, P.C. as the new independent accounting firm.
