(PresseBox) - Aurania Resources Ltd. (TSXV: ARU) (OTCQB: AUIAF) (Frankfurt: 20Q) (?Aurania? or the ?Company? - ) reports that soil sampling shows strong enrichment of copper directly over the Tsenken N2 geophysical feature that was identified as a second-tier target in the airborne magnetic survey that the Company completed over its Lost Cities ? Cutucu Project (?Project?) in southeastern Ecuador.

Soil sampling revealed copper enrichment over an area 2,000 metres (?m?) long by 300m wide.

Aurania?s Chairman and CEO, Dr. Keith Barron commented, ?The superimposition of strong copper enrichment in the soil over the Tsenken N2 magnetic feature, along with alteration observed in sporadic outcrops, points toward this being a porphyry copper target.

Next Steps at Tsenken

A soil sampling program, like the one completed over Tsenken N2, is planned for the N1, N3 and N4 targets, to be followed by rock chip sampling and preparation for scout drilling.

Technical Details on the Tsenken N2 Target

Whole rock analysis from the intrusive rocks in the Tsenken target indicate that they are dioritic in composition.

Yawi Drilling Update

After completion of the second hole at the Yawi A target, the drill has been moved to the Yawi B target, where hole YW-003 is inclined to the south beneath an extensive area of sinter.

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

Soil sampling at Tsenken N2 was at 50m intervals on lines spaced 100m apart.d subsequently screened each sample at 80 mesh (using screens with apertures of approximately 0.18 millimetres).nalyzed 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.

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

The labs reported that the analyses had passed their internal QAQC tests.

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.

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.
