recent pressrelease next pressrelease

(PresseBox) - Aurania Resources Ltd. (TSXV: ARU) (OTCQB: AUIAF) (Frankfurt: 20Q) (?Aurania? or the ?Company? - ) reports that further exploration has refined its Apai target for gold and silver in its Lost Cities ? Cutucu Project (?Project?) in southeastern Ecuador.

Aurania?s Chairman and CEO commented, ?We have now identified twenty epithermal systems in 50% of the area of the Lost Cities Cutucu Project that has been field-checked by our exploration team.k these targets for further focused exploration to create shareholder value.?

Apai Target

Recent field work has shown that the centre of the Apia target is marked by abundant sinter blocks over an area of at least 1.2km by 0.5km.

Possible Link to Adjacent Mineralization

Detailed interpretation of satellite imagery for Aurania by an independent consultant shows that the Apai epithermal target lies within the same fault system as the high-grade copper found in a breccia in SolGold?s ?Anomaly 2? in its Coangos 2 concession (Figure 1). in porphyries, rise and cool along fault corridors, depositing gold and silver in epithermal deposits. [Note that Aurania has not independently verified the results reported by SolGold and is relying on the information provided in SolGold?s press release issued on May 10, 2019].

Next Steps

- Undertake soil sampling in the drainage basins in which elevated silver and pathfinder elements were detected in the stream sediment sampling program;

- Undertake detailed alteration mapping ? this is to detect the minerals that have developed from the reaction of hot, metal-bearing fluids with the host-rocks. These alteration minerals are typically arranged in a roughly concentric pattern around mineralized systems and provide a way of vectoring toward the heart of the system where the metals are located;

- Geophysics will be considered; and

- Application has been made for the water-use permit for scout drilling, which requires several steps:

Samples from streams from which water is to be pumped for scout drilling are undergoing repeated testing and analysis to establish a baseline for comparison with tests made at regular intervals during and after drilling. This work is necessary to demonstrate that there is no contamination of water from the drilling and serves to protect the Company against potential and unfounded allegations in the future;

The sites from which water is planned to be taken have been reviewed by an independent consultant who has verified that the streams would support the pumping of the 1.5 litres per second required for drilling, without significantly affecting flow levels; and

The above information has been included in an application for water-use that is being submitted to the controlling entity called SENAGUA.

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

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

ALS?s preparation lab in Quito sent the prepared samples to its analytical facility in Lima, Peru for analysis: a 0.5g split of the -80 mesh fraction of the stream silt underwent digestion with aqua regia and the liquid was analyzed for 48 elements by ICP-MS. 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.

Forward-looking statements include estimates and statements that describe Aurania?s future plans, objectives or goals, including words to the effect that Aurania or its management expects a stated condition or result to occur. Forward-looking statements may be identified by such terms as ?believes?, ?anticipates?, ?expects?, ?estimates?, ?may?, ?could?, ?would?, ?will?, or ?plan?. Since forward-looking statements are based on assumptions and address future events and conditions, by their very nature they involve inherent risks and uncertainties. Although these statements are based on information currently available to Aurania, Aurania provides no assurance that actual results will meet management?s expectations. Risks, uncertainties and other factors involved with forward-looking information could cause actual events, results, performance, prospects and opportunities to differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking information. Forward looking information in this news release includes, but is not limited to, Aurania?s objectives, goals or future plans, statements, exploration results, potential mineralization, the corporation?s portfolio, treasury, management team and enhanced capital markets profile, the estimation of mineral resources, exploration and mine development plans, timing of the commencement of operations and estimates of market conditions. 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.
