recent pressrelease next pressrelease

(PresseBox) - Aurania Resources Ltd. (TSXV: ARU) (OTCQB: AUIAF) (Frankfurt: 20Q) (?Aurania? or the ?Company? - reports the Tsenken target in the Lost Cities ? Cutucu Project (?Project?) in southeastern Ecuador has been enlarged by 6 kilometres (?km?); high-grade copper and silver has now been found over a 9km long trend.

Aurania?s President, Dr. Richard Spencer commented, ?Results from recent sampling have tripled the size of the Tsenken target to an impressive length of phase of exploration.?

?In addition, scout drilling at Crunchy Hill is progressing well with four holes completed and the fifth is currently underway.

Copper-Silver Mineralization at Tsenken

Copper and silver found in the area north of the magnetic feature at Tsenken (Figure 1) is contained in relatively flat-lying layers of sandstone and shale.

Grades from boulders in streams range from 0.8% copper with 1.3g/t silver to 9.3% copper with 185g/t silver (Figure 1).anation for its size, raised in the Company?s January 10, 2019 press release, is that the Tsenken feature represents a cluster of porphyry bodies. Mineralization models will likely evolve with further exploration of the Project.

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

Some of the samples were prepared for analysis at ALS Global?s (?ALS?) lab in Quito, Ecuador and others at MS Analytical in Cuenca, 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. 4 grams of pulp underwent digestion in four acids and the resulting liquid was diluted and analyzed by ICP-MS.

The ultra high-grade copper sample (sample Y003600) was re-assayed by MS Analytical, and the value reported in Figure 1 is the average of the two assays.

ALS and MS Analytical reported that the analyses had passed their internal QAQC tests.
