Auracle Resources Ltd. Announces 84.9 Meters at 1.76 g/t Gold

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 28, 2012) - Auracle Resources Ltd. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:AAL) is pleased to announce that final assays from the Phase One diamond drill program on the Company's Mexican Hat gold project, located 110 km southeast of Tucson, Arizona.

The program consisting of 19 drill holes was designed to test the Mexican Hat area covering the non 43-101 complaint resource area as defined by Placer Dome as well as possible mineralized extensions to the south and east.

Drilling conditions were difficult and core recovery was a challenge throughout the program. Results from diamond drilling as compared to historical reverse circulation drilling were lower in most areas and in one case 70% lower.

Assay results in and around the historic resource area as well as areas up to 150 meters east and up to 1000 meters south indicated the presence of gold mineralization. The potential for further mineralization remains open to the south and down dip as well as old workings up to 2.5 km south of the Mexican Hat.

Following the release of holes MH 001, 002 and 003 further sampling and assaying on these holes was carried out to possibly extend identified intercepts on these holes. The results are considered encouraging.

Holes MH 11-10, 11, 12, 13, 15, 16, 17 and 19 were drilled to the east of the resource area and encountered significant alteration but returned sporadic and generally low gold values. Further work will be required to determine if this has identified the eastern limit of gold mineralization.

The Company is satisfied with the results to date and planning is underway for the next phase of drilling, concentrating within and extending the historic resource area using reverse circulation drilling as well as extending the zone southwards.

Jerome Grant M.Sc., P.Geo., was the qualified person and site manager and has overseen insertion of quality control standards and blanks into the core stream. The core is shipped by UPS to Loring Laboratories in Calgary, Alberta for assay. George Nicholson, P.Geo., Director has approved the contents of this release.

Auracle would like to thank the field staff and service providers in Arizona as well as our shareholders.
