Aurelian Mobilizes a Second Drill Rig to the Fruta Del Norte Epithermal Gold-Silver Target

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - May 25, 2006) - Aurelian Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ARU) today announced that a second diamond drill rig has been mobilized and has started drilling at the Fruta Del Norte (FDN) epithermal gold-silver target.

Drilling is continuing along strike from hole CP-06-51 on 100m sections to confirm the grade, width and continuity of the mineralization. To date, 10 holes have been completed in the FDN target, with results released for four of these holes on April 5th, 2006. Four sections across the structure, covering 300 m of strike length have been tested to date. Results for the next batch of holes will be released when they are fully received and compiled.

The FDN epithermal gold-silver target is interpreted as a low to intermediate sulphidation gold-silver epithermal system. The mineralization is characterized by multiphase stockwork veining and hydrothermal brecciation within silicified andesitic volcanics. Larger veins have also been intersected within the system. Two main mineralizing episodes are interpreted; an earlier quartz-carbonate-sulphide phase and a later quartz-sulphide phase. Assays indicate that both phases have introduced gold into the system, visible gold has been observed in both phases.
