Aurea Becomes Major Stakeholder in Taviche Mining District

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 25, 2007) -


Aurea Mining Inc. ("Aurea") (TSX VENTURE:MXA)(FRANKFURT:A9M)(WKN:A0F420) reports that it has acquired a 100% interest over two additional claims comprising approximately 70,000 hectares in the gold and silver-rich Taviche Mining district of Oaxaca State, Mexico.

Richard Whittall, President of Aurea Mining, said: "These new claims elevate Aurea Mining to being a leading stakeholder in the Taviche Mining District, which is re-emerging as one of Mexico's more important mining areas as a result of recent discoveries. The early positive results coming from our Monte Alban property, together with the prospective activity of other players in the area including Fortuna-Continuum and Intrepid-Aura Silver, provide a clear indication of the potential of the whole district."

"The new claims were recently staked to explore potential targets beyond Aurea's Monte Alban property boundaries. While we expect to see some modifications to the final claim boundaries during the normal course of Mexico's title process, we are very pleased to have succeeded in staking a leading land position in an area that is currently experiencing so much exploration activity." The new claims' location diagram can be found on Aurea's website at

Aurea Mining continues to actively explore its Monte Alban property; a 100% owned 2,805 hectare claim located in the heart of the Taviche Mining District. Mapping, surface and underground sampling programs and a 5,000 metre drill program are currently underway and proceeding on schedule. Results will be published as they become available.

Aurea Mining Inc., focused on exploration in Mexico, is building shareholder value through acquisition, exploration and discovery. Monte Alban is an advanced-stage polymetallic exploration project located in the historic Taviche Mining District in Oaxaca State, an area known for several high grade epithermal gold and silver discoveries. Aurea has an option over 100% of the Monte Alban property. The company also controls a 100% interest in over 80,000 hectares of contiguous mineral claims strategically located in the emerging Guerrero Gold Belt of Guerrero State, Mexico. The Guerrero Gold belt hosts a 12 million ounce gold inventory that is currently being explored and developed by several major mining companies.
