recent pressrelease next pressrelease

(PresseBox) - Aurania Resources Ltd. (TSXV: ARU) (OTCQB: AUIAF) (Frankfurt: 20Q) (?Aurania? or the ?Company? - ) reports that follow-up exploration is defining additional, extensive epithermal targets for gold and silver at the Tiria target area on the flanks of a 15 kilometre (?km?) trend of silver-zinc-lead mineralization at its Lost Cities ? Cutucu Project (?Project?) in Ecuador.viding strong indications of a large mineralized system.

Aurania?s Chairman and CEO, Dr. Keith Barron, commented, ?We continue to build our portfolio of epithermal targets, which currently sits at 20 targets, in our search for the next Fruta del Norte. target area and I believe that we are likely to be in a position to joint venture the silver-zinc-lead target shortly.?

Tiria Targets

Four separate target areas have been identified through the presence of blocks of various types of silica that exhibit characteristics of epithermal systems, such as chalcedony veins and hydrothermal breccia.

Shimpia Target

High-grade silver (up to 325 grams per tonne (?g/t?)) with high-grade zinc and lead were reported in Aurania?s first press release on the Shimpia target on November 29, 2018.

Regional Context

The current exploration concept is that the conspicuous magnetic zone at Jempe, interpreted as a buried porphyry with copper potential, is genetically related to the silver-zinc-lead zone at Shimpia, that then evolves outward and upward into the Tiria epithermal targets for gold and silver.

Next Steps

Further exploration will focus on the corridors of enrichment of pathfinder elements and silver in the epithermal target areas with the aim of advancing them toward scout drilling. The silver-zinc-lead mineralization is not core to Aurania and is likely to be made available to interested parties for joint venture.

Update on Drilling at Yawi

The water-use permit has been obtained for the scout drilling at Yawi and final preparations are underway for the program which is expected to commence on the first of four targets later in September.

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

Laboratories: The samples were prepared for analysis at ALS Global?s (?ALS?) lab in Quito, or at MS Analytical (?MSA?) in Cuenca, Ecuador.

Sample preparation: Soil samples consisted of approximately one kilogram of clay from the iron-rich ?B? horizon at each sample point. The soil samples were dried and subsequently screened through 80 mesh (using screens with apertures of approximately 0.18 millimetres).rized to 85% passing 0.075mm and was packaged for shipment to the analytical facility.

Rock samples were jaw-crushed to 10 mesh (crushed material passes through a mesh with apertures of 2 millimetres (?mm?)), from which a one-kilogram sub-sample was taken.

Analytical procedure:

QAQC: Aurania personnel inserted a certified standard pulp sample, alternating with a field blank, at approximate 20 sample intervals in all sample batches. Aurania?s analysis of results from its independent QAQC samples showed the batches reported on above, lie within acceptable limits.
