(PresseBox) - Toronto, Ontario, January 10, 2019 ? Aurania Resources Ltd. (TSXV: ARU) (OTCQB: AUIAF) (Frankfurt: 20Q) (?Aurania? or the ?Company? - reports up to 9% copper with 185 grams per tonne (?g/t?) silver ? from grab samples of rock in streams draining a doughnut-shaped magnetic feature identified as the ?Tsenken-A? porphyry target in magnetic data from the Lost Cities ? Cutucu Project (?Project?) in southeastern Ecuador.

Aurania?s Chairman and CEO, Dr. Keith Barron commented, ?The significance of these high-grade copper results is that they suggest that the highly magnetic feature at Tsenken ? rather than being one very large, broad target area - is resolving into a cluster of discrete magnetic features, each of which could be a porphyry body.

?Tsenken A? Target

The high-grade samples contain malachite, chrysocolla, tenorite and chalcocite with minor cuprite.e expected from a porphyry system in which the central, potassium-altered, magnetite-bearing core is enclosed by ?phyllic? alteration in which magnetite has been altered to non-magnetic minerals.

Copper mineralization at Tsenken-A has been found in an area of 3km by 1km in extent (Figure 1, Table 1).

The Tsenken magnetic feature lies 8km from the Kirus magnetic feature, where copper grades of up to 5.4% with 54g/t silver were obtained, and 12km from Jempe, where grades of up to 3% copper and 47g/t silver were reported in a press release dated October 4, 2018.

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.nd the Undersecretary of the Ministry of the Environment and has been assured that the scout drilling permit will be issued shortly.

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.nalyzed by ICP-MS.

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

Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from such forward-looking information include, but are not limited to, failure to identify mineral resources, failure to convert estimated mineral resources to reserves, the inability to complete a feasibility study which recommends a production decision, the preliminary nature of metallurgical test results, delays in obtaining or failures to obtain required governmental, regulatory, environmental or other project approvals, political risks, inability to fulfill the duty to accommodate indigenous peoples, uncertainties relating to the availability and costs of financing needed in the future, changes in equity markets, inflation, changes in exchange rates, fluctuations in commodity prices, delays in the development of projects, capital and operating costs varying significantly from estimates and the other risks involved in the mineral exploration and development industry, and those risks set out in Aurania?s public documents filed on SEDAR. Although Aurania believes that the assumptions and factors used in preparing the forward-looking information in this news release are reasonable, undue reliance should not be placed on such information, which only applies as of the date of this news release, and no assurance can be given that such events will occur in the disclosed time frames or at all.
