AuRo Files 43-101 Report on Arboledas Gold Property

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 6, 2011) - AuRo Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:ARU)(FRANKFURT:NXP3) is pleased to announce that a National Instrument 43-101 Technical Report entitled "Technical Report on the Arboledas Property, Norte De Santander, Colombia" (the "Technical Report") has been filed on SEDAR. The Technical Report dated January 20, 2011 was prepared by Andrew J. Turner, B.Sc., P. Geo, and is available at and on the Company's website.

The Arboledas gold property consists of four concession areas that total approximately 14,077 hectares, located in the departments of Norte de Santander and Santander. This is approximately 55km north of the city of Bucaramanga, and 15km southwest of the town of Arboledas. These concessions are also located approximately 18km north of the California-Vetas gold-silver mining camp, host to EBX Group's La Bodega multimillion ounce gold discovery (formerly owned by Ventana Gold Corp.), and Eco Oro Minerals', formerly Greystar Resources, Angostura gold-silver deposit, as well as Galway Resources.

The Arboledas property is being explored for structurally controlled, intrusive related epithermal gold and gold-silver deposits. Sampling on the Quebrada Ventanas area of the property in 2009 was conducted between the elevations of 2300 and 2800m. Of the 48 rock samples collected, eight (8) samples returned assay results greater than, or equal to, 0.50 g/t gold, including an assay of 8.43 g/t gold. Subsequent exploration will include float mapping and sampling, and stream sediment sampling of drainages. AuRo is in the process of building a road to improve access to the Arboledas property.

The content of this news release has been reviewed by Mr. Ken Thorsen, P. Eng., who serves as the Qualified Person in accordance with National Instrument 43-101.
