Aurea Mining Inc.-Aurea Norte Project-Follow Up Drilling Underway at the San Luis Showing

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - March 22, 2007) -


The Aurea Mining Inc. ("Aurea") (TSX VENTURE:MXA) reports that drilling has now begun on the Aurea Norte project. This drill program will run concurrently with the 4,000 metre Aurea Sur drill program, still in progress. The fourteen hole, 2,300 metre Aurea Norte program is contracted to MKE Ingeniería de Suelos S.A. de C.V. Planned drill holes will follow up early drill results where 1.11 g/ton gold over 16.8m was intercepted in SL-003 during the first test drill campaign at the San Luis-Rey David showings completed in 2005.

The San Luis-Rey David showings are located 1.3km apart and consist of a Guerrero Gold Belt style of mineralization exposed in surface outcrops of jasperoid, marble and altered porphyry intrusions. Both showings are located about 8 km northwest of the Limon-Los Guajes deposit, a 3.2 million ounce resource currently being drill delineated by Teck Cominco. As announced on November 11, 2005, the best intersection from the first test drill program at Aurea Norte occurred at the San Luis showing with 1.11 g/ton intersected over 16.8m in drillhole SL-003. Significant widths with anomalous gold were intersected in several other drill holes from that program. This area is the focus of the 2007 drill program now underway.

The Aurea Norte Project consists of nine 100% controlled mineral claims that cover nearly sixty thousand hectares. The Aurea Norte Project represents the northern half of the over 80,000 hectare contiguous mineral claims held 100% by Aurea Mining Inc. The claims are strategically located within the Guerrero Gold Belt (GGB) where over 10 million ounces of gold have already been discovered and are currently being developed by Goldcorp, Teck Cominco and Grupo Mexico (IMMSA).
