Aurea Mining Inc.: Final Underground Assay Results Received for the Monte Alban Property, Taviche Mining District

VANCOUVER, BRITSH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 27, 2007) -


Aurea Mining Inc. ("Aurea") (TSX VENTURE:MXA)(FRANKFURT:A9M)(WKN: A0F420) reports on assays results from its underground sampling program on the Monte Alban property, Oaxaca State, Mexico. Results are from 68 underground samples taken in several shallow mine workings located at different levels of the San Jorge Vein. The best assay from this program returned 24.5 gm/tonne gold, 515 gm/tonne silver, 0.03% copper and 0.48% lead and 0.63% zinc over a 1.60 meter sample width. Gold values vary from less than 0.1 gm/tonne gold to 24.5 gm/tonne. Silver values vary from 0.4 gm/tonne silver to 515 gm/tonne silver. Copper values vary from 0.01% to 0.65% copper. Lead values vary from less than 0.01% to 8.66% lead and zinc values vary from 0.01% to 3.78% zinc. The sample widths range from 0.50 metres to 3.60 metres, averaging a 1.87 metre sample width. Calculated sample averages from each working are tabled below.

Previously reported samples from the deepest underground mine working, located 120 metres below surface returned a weighted average of 2.99 gm/tonne gold, 29.28 gm/tonne silver, 1.58% lead and 2.50% zinc over an average 5.5 metre sample width and a 750 metre strike length (September 7, 2007 press release). The mine workings reported in this press release are located at shallower depths and above the 120 metre level. All workings are small scale, driven into the same vein from different heights on the hillsides. Depths from surface of the mine workings vary from surface at the entry point to 50 metres below surface as the tunnel burrows into the hillside. Previously announced results from surface samples taken above these old mine workings averaged 2.17 gm/tonne gold and 41.66 gm/tonne silver over an 1100 metre strike length and a 10 metre average sample width (August 8, 2007 press release).

Each sample consists of a composite of chips taken at varying intervals across any vein remaining after historic mining activities had either partially exposed and/or extracted the vein. Because of the previously mined nature of these underground exposures, and the changing dip that varies from 55 to 70 degrees southwest along the strike of the vein at surface, these reported widths do not represent true widths. The true width of the San Jorge Vein has been measured from the 120m level to vary from 1.0 to 10.0 metres. These 68 samples complete the underground sample program of existing mine workings on the San Jorge Vein which is currently being drill tested below and along strike of these mine workings. A sampling program is now underway over several areas of stockwork mineralization exposed at surface in various locations on the property. These stockwork zones are interpreted to represent a different style and potential for mineralization compared with the San Jorge Vein System.

The previously announced 5000 metre drill program (August 28, 2007 press release) is advancing well and the first three drill holes into the San Jorge Vein have been sampled and quartered. Samples of one quarter core have been sent to ALS Chemex in Guadalajara for sample preparation before being sent to Vancouver for assay. The second quarter was sent to the ISO9001-2000 certified Servicio Geologico Mexicano Centro Experimental Oaxaca, a round robin lab with SGS Analab from Australia, as part of a quality control test program. Remaining core is stored on site for review and verification.
