Aurea Mining Inc.: Underground Assay Results Received for the Monte Alban Property, Taviche Mining District

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 7, 2007) -


Aurea Mining Inc. ("Aurea") (TSX VENTURE:MXA)(FRANKFURT:A9M)(WKN: A0F420) reports preliminary assays results from its underground sampling program on the Monte Alban property, Oaxaca State, Mexico. Results from 29 underground samples have a weighted average of 2.99 gm/tonne gold, 29.28 gm/tonne silver, 1.58% lead and 2.50% zinc over an average 5.5 meter sample width. Sample spacing represents a strike length of 750 metres on the San Jorge Vein. Gold values vary from less than 0.1 gm/tonne gold over 5.0 metres to 18.90 gm/tonne gold over 14.0 metres and silver values vary from 0.9 gm/tonne silver over 5.0 metres to 81.5 gm/tonne silver over 3.0 metres. Lead values vary from 0.01% over 5.0 metres to 3.3% over 4.0 metres and zinc values vary from 0.01% over 0.2 metres to 12.65% over 3.0 metres. The sample widths at this mine level range from 0.10 metres to 15.0 metres. Previously announced results from surface samples over the same vein averaged 2.17 gm/tonne gold and 41.66 gm/tonne silver over an 1100 metre strike length and a 10 metre average sample width (August 8, 2007 press release).

The underground samples were taken in the deepest mine workings of the San Jorge Vein System at 120 metres from surface. Samples consist of composites of chips taken at 25 metre intervals across the vein remaining after historic mining activities had extracted from 1.5 to 14 metres from the vein. Because of the previously mined nature of the underground exposures and the changing dip that varies from 55 to 70 degrees southwest, the reported widths do not represent true widths which are measured to vary from 1.0 to 10.0 metres.

Assay results from a further 140 samples from underground workings and over 400 samples from surface mapping across the property are still pending from Chemex. Detail mapping and infill channel sampling is pending.

A minimum 5000 metre drill program is now underway to follow up on assay and mapping results to date (August 28, 2007 press release). Currently, twenty-one drill holes are planned as a preliminary test of the San Jorge Vein System at several levels along an initial 1,100 metre strike length. All samples are sent to ALS Chemex in Guadalajara, Mexico for processing and shipping to Vancouver, Canada for assay. Maps relating to this press release can be found at
