(the "Company" or "AurCrest") (TSX VENTURE:AGO) is pleased to announce that the follow-up drill program to the March 2012 Richardson Lake gold discovery has commenced. The Company is drill testing interpreted shear zones originally discovered in hole RL-12-07 associated with a two kilometre long folded iron formation which has been identified as gold bearing from both surface sampling, and the above-mentioned drillhole (see news releases dated April 30, 2012 and June 5, 2012). The Company intends to drill up to four holes for a total of 1,600 metres in this program. Preliminary results are expected in mid-September.

These formations are collectively what was previously identified as the Jacquie-Girl Iron Formation. The Richardson Lake formation will remain identified as the Jacquie-Girl and the western formation will now be known as the Western Fold.
