(PresseBox) - Aurania Resources Ltd. (TSXV: ARU) (OTCQB: AUIAF) (Frankfurt: 20Q) (?Aurania? or the ?Company? -

Copper is present as the minerals chalcocite, cuprite and malachite in slabs of fine-grained, bedded tuffs and sedimentary rocks.

Secondary copper minerals have been found in an area of 1km by 1.5km in extent adjacent to the Kirus magnetic target.

Chairman & CEO, Dr. Keith Barron commented, ?It is early days yet, but I believe it is very significant that our geologists are finding secondary copper minerals in proximity to our magnetic targets.y encouraged?.

?Our approach to copper-gold exploration has been to focus our geochemical and prospecting program on targets selected from the airborne geophysics survey that we flew over the whole Project area late last year.

Grab Sample (Rock) Results

Kirus Target

Analysis of the three grab samples of rock from the Kirus target that exceeded the limit of detection of the assay method used for routine exploration (reported in our October 4, 2018 press release) has returned the following values:

39% copper and 54.5g/t silver;

83% copper and 58.8g/t silver; and

28% copper and 48.4g/t silver.

A new grab sample with strong malachite (green mineral in Figure 1) and chalcocite mineralization contains 5.3% copper and 79g/t silver.of strong magnetism represents the principal target at Kirus.

Tsenken Target

A grab sample taken from the magnetic feature that lies 8km from Kirus contains a very high copper grade of 7.1% and moderate silver at 19g/t. As with Kirus, the target at Tsenken is likely to be the strongly magnetic feature (Figure 2).

Jempe Target

The other area in which secondary copper has been encountered is at Jempe, which is centred on areas of strong magnetism.

Sample Analysis & Quality Assurance / Quality Control (?QAQC?)

The samples were prepared for analysis at ALS Global?s (?ALS?) lab in Quito, Ecuador.

Aurania personnel inserted a certified standard pulp sample, alternating with a field blank, at intervals of approximately 20 samples in all sample batches.

ALS?s preparation lab in Quito sent the prepared samples to its analytical facility in Lima, Peru for analysis.

Apart from being analyzed by ICP-MS, gold was also analyzed by fire assay with an ICP-AES finish.

ALS reported that the analyses had passed its internal QAQC tests.

Update on Scout Drilling Program

The Company is awaiting one more permit to clear the way for scout drilling of the epithermal gold-silver target at Crunchy Hill.
