AuRo would also like to clarify and address an article that recently appeared online titled "Colombia's president bans exploration in historic coffee growing region."

The article stated that Colombia's President Juan Manuel Santos says his administration has prohibited mining in 47 coffee producing municipalities in the departments of Valle del Cauca, Caldas, Quindío, Risaralda and Valle. This article also stated that "Among the Canadian exploration companies with exploration programs in the departments of Tolimo and Quindio are AuRo Resources' White Gold Properties, and Miranda Gold's Cajamarca project."

This article was derived from a Colombian newspaper called La Patria and was translated from Spanish to English; the original article in La Patria did not cite AuRo Resources or Miranda Gold. The Company would like to clarify that although it possesses interests in close to 30,000 hectares in the Departments of Tolima and Quindio, 12–25 km from AngloGold Ashanti's multimillion ounce La Colosa gold deposit, the majority of its concessions and priority exploration targets reside in the department of Tolima, and not Quindio.

It is important to note that 2 of the largest discoveries in Colombia reside in the Departments of Caldas and Quindio, and management and its Colombian counsel do not foresee this becoming a law, nor does it conceive that President Juan Manuel Santos would enact any law that would deter future foreign direct investment, stimulus to future economic growth and job creation in these increasingly important mining regions.
