AuRo Files 43-101 Report on Surata Gold Property

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 14, 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 Surata Property, 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 Surata Gold Project is the largest contiguous land package in the California-Vetas-Surata mining districts, one of the most prolific gold camps in Colombia, host to the multi-million ounce Angostura and La Bodega gold-silver deposits. Located between 15 and 45 kilometers northeast of the city of Bucaramanga, the capital of Santander department in northern Colombia, the Project covers an area of 18,734 hectares and consists of eleven concession areas, six with titles and five in application pending title. The titles are 100% owned by AuRo's Colombian subsidiary, Oro Barracuda, through contracts with the Colombian government. The concessions are all below 3,200 metres in elevation.

Exploration to date, and studies by Ingeominas have identified intrusive bodies that are closely related in age and composition to those found in the adjacent California district. These intrusives host significant gold-silver mineralization in the California district, including Eco Oro Minerals' (formerly Greystar) Angostura, AUX's La Bodega (formerly Ventana Gold), and Galway Resources' California gold discoveries, located approximately 10 kilometres east of the Surata Project. Gold mineralization in the California district is also associated with a system of northeast trending faults that control gold deposits. At the Surata Gold Project, two similar northeast trending faults intersect part of the property.

Between, 2008 and 2010, 114 rock samples and 9 stream sediment samples were collected on and around the property. Of these samples, a sample of sulphide bearing (pyrite) quartz vein was collected on the Surata property that assayed 3.06 g/t gold. This sample has a unique geochemical signature with a strong epithermal association including elevated arsenic, antimony, bismuth and copper. Further exploration is warranted to test the Surata property's potential for hosting structurally controlled, intrusive related epithermal gold and gold-silver mineralization, similar to other significant deposits in the California-Vetas mining districts.

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.
