Aurea Mining Inc. Announces Final Results for Phase One Drilling, Aurea Norte

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 11, 2005) -

NOT FOR DISSEMINATION OR DISTRIBUTION IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

Aurea Mining Inc. (TSX VENTURE:MXA) is pleased to announce the final results for their phase one drill program on the San Luis and Rey David showings. Management is strongly encouraged by positive early test results, anchored by 16.80 metres of 1.11 grams gold from drillhole SL-003. The drill program has confirmed the existence of gold bearing skarn style mineralization on the Aurea Norte property. Drill results suggest that the gold bearing horizon forms a sheet like body in the footwall to a diorite sill that may be continuous from the Rey David showing through to San Luis, a distance of over 1.3km. Further drilling is indicated to define the full extent of the mineralized zone and to improve on its grade potential. Further exploration, mapping and drilling is warranted to follow up on these encouraging results. A second phase drill program is in preparation to follow up on the results that will seek to expand the extents of the mineralization. This second exploration phase will be a comprehensive program of regional and detail mapping, sampling and drilling.

Previously announced results from the first three holes of this drill program, shown on the following table confirmed the potential for gold mineralization in the area with the best result from SL-003 grading 37.25 meters of 0.61 gm/t gold, including the 16.80 meters of 1.11 gm/ton gold.

The results for the remaining drill holes of this program have been received and continue to show anomalous gold values from a Filos type depositional environment to warrant continued exploration. Los Filos is a north-south striking sill hosted skarn deposit in the Guerrero Gold Belt with 2.75 M ounces contained gold in all categories. It is located 23km to the SE of the San Luis showing and is presently being put into production by Goldcorp. The larger El Limon-Los Guajes skarn, with 3.2M ounces contained gold is only 10 km to the SE. The following table summarizes results to date.

Samples were taken on site by Minera Aurea staff and sent to ALS Chemex in Guadalajara for processing. Multi element assaying was completed by Chemex in Vancouver.

Exploration plans for Aurea Norte are to advance the known mineralization of the San Luis and Rey David prospects through detailed mapping and drilling; to trace the potential for continuation of the gold mineralization through to Aurea's La Morenita showing located 10km north of San Luis; and to detail the La Morenita showing in preparation of drilling.

Exploration plans to advance Aurea Sur include detailed mapping and sampling of the Ottawa-Consorcio Jasperoid, mentioned in a previous press release to be 400m wide and strike northerly for 2.0km on surface. Regional mapping will seek to extend the strike of the Jasperoid to the north-northeast at Duraznos, and finally a regional mapping and sampling program is planned for the Vinatas gold showing.

Other regional exploration plans include following up a regional stream sediment program in Coyote West which indicated a broad gold anomaly in that area, and to evaluate the regional potential for VMS style mineralization on Aurea held ground adjacent to Farallon Resources Campo Morado discovery.
