Aura Silver Completes Private Placement Financing With the MineralFields Group

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 11, 2008) - Aura Silver Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:AUU) (the "Company" or "Aura Silver") announces the completion of a private placement of $500,000 through the issuance of 2,941,175 flow-through units (the "FT Units") at $0.17 per FT Unit to the MineralFields Group. The FT Units are comprised of one flow-through common share and one-half share purchase warrant for a non-flow-through common share. Each whole warrant is exercisable at $0.40 on or before June 11, 2009 and at $0.60 on or before June 11, 2010. The common shares and warrants are subject to hold periods expiring on October 12, 2008. The Company paid a finder's fee consisting of $30,000 in cash and provided compensation options entitling the holder to purchase 205,882 non-flow-through units at an exercise price of $0.17 per unit on or before June 11, 2010. Each non-flow-through unit is comprised of one non-flow-through common share and one-half share purchase warrant with each whole warrant having the same terms as above.

"We are pleased to be entering into this financing relationship with MineralFields Group to enable us to further explore our Greyhound Lake property holdings" said Robert Boaz, President and CEO of Aura Silver. The proceeds of this financing will fully fund the 2008 program costs for the Greyhound Lake property covering a relatively unexplored Archean greenstone belt north of Baker Lake, Nunavut. As previously announced, the Company recently completed a staking program adjacent to its wholly-owned claims at Greyhound Lake which has, potentially, more than doubled its land position to 24,000 hectares. This was precipitated by an intensive analysis of additional data received last year and in early 2008. The Company expects to have an airborne EM/Magnetic survey flown over the enlarged land position in July followed by detailed prospecting of conductive zones and known showings in August.

Mr. Paul Pitman, P. Geo is the Qualified Person for Aura Silver under National Instrument 43-101.
