AuRo Provides Pre-Drill Campaign Progress Update

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 15, 2010) - AuRo Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:ARU) (the "Company") provided today a progress update on it current pre-drill campaign at its flagship El Tesoro project.

As of November 12, 2010, 850 soil samples have been collected, and are currently with SGS Laboratories for analysis. The Company expects to receive initial results from these samples within the next few weeks. In addition, the current trenching program has been enlarged. In order to follow up positive indications, some of the 12 trenches will be extended to a length of 50 meters to determine if the soil away from the vein is mineralized, which will also provide an indication for the potential of a bulk tonnage target. The current trenching program is designed to develop drill targets to be tested in a core drilling campaign planned for January, 2011.

Mark Lawson, President & CEO of AuRo Resources said, "We have been methodically pursuing an extensive surface exploration program in order to optimize our upcoming drill campaign. Recently, we have become excited by the discovery of an additional 5 artisanal mines at El Tesoro. Material at the base of these mines consists of strongly hematite stained and saprolitic granitic rocks and quartz vein. This is particularly noteworthy because significant gold deposits in Colombia are typically first revealed through the existence of artisanal mines."
