Auric Mining Provides Interpretations of NI 43-101 Geological Report

WILMINGTON, DE--(Marketwire - March 8, 2011) - Auric Mining Corp. (PINKSHEETS: AUMY) (the "Company") reports on the results of the recent NI43-101 qualifying report received by the company from Pearson Exploration Ltd., a "Qualified Issuer." In an effort to be as accurate as possible, technical language has been taken directly from the document and previous historical work on the property is referenced.

"The property lies within a structural corridor which juxtaposes the Kipahigan Granite with the Missi Group conglomerate and arenaceous rocks intruded by discontinuous feldspar porphyritic sills. Faulting along the supracrustal rocks has focused quartz veining along the fractures forming a vein system extending for over 300m. The best result from the stripped areas was 2.48 oz/ton Au sample. Gold-quartz veining occurs over widths of up to 4.3m in at least two parallel veins with grades of up to .52 oz/ton Au. This presence of gold-quartz veining is typical of gold deposits throughout the world."

The historic work indicates the potential for a gold-quartz vein deposit along this corridor. It is also apparent from historic sampling and drilling that the gold within the system is "nugget" and therefore it will be necessary to test the stripped areas with channel sample saw cuts that take samples of the vein system and large diameter drill core that will obtain representative samples of the vein system at depth.

Auric will be reporting on the recommendations made in the report and the company's intentions for moving forward in an upcoming announcement.
