Aurogin Acquires Additional Battle Mountain-Cortez Ground

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Aug. 10, 2006) - Aurogin Resources Ltd. ("Aurogin" or "the Company") (TSX VENTURE:AUQ) (OTO:AROG) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement to acquire 29 additional claims adjacent to its Lone Mountain Project in Nevada.

The Lone Mountain Property, 25 km north-west of Eureka (Http://www.auroginresources.com for location map), is located on the southern part of the Northern Nevada Rift Zone. The 59 original claims cover a mineralized fault zone that truncates Lone Mountain and is now largely buried by the alluvial plain. Aurogin has completed additional CSAMT surveying as well as mapping and surface geochemical sampling at its Lone Mountain Project. In addition, gravity and airborne magnetic data covering the Project have been acquired. This new information, in conjunction with the results from the CSAMT survey completed by Zonge Geosciences, Inc. of Sparks, Nevada (see March 1, 2006 press release), were compiled and analyzed and several potential drill targets have been identified on the original and newly acquired claims. Permitting for 12 exploration drill holes ranging in depth from 150 to 200 meters in depth is in progress. Drilling is planned for this fall.

To earn 100% interest in the Property, Aurogin must issue the vendor (a private U.S. company) 200,000 warrants exercisable at $0.30 for two years, spend US$250,000 over 5 years and make advance royalty payments thereafter. The agreement is subject to regulatory approval. Neil Gow (P. Geo.) is the Qualified Person under NI 43-101 standards on this project.

Aurogin Resources Ltd. is an emerging gold producer focused on the acquisition and development of profitable gold deposits in the Americas. The Company currently has two core projects: The El Sastre Project in Guatemala, an expanding resource that includes four zones, which management believes comprise more than one million ounces of gold potential; and, the Lone Mountain Project in Nevada located on the prolific Battle Mountain-Cortez Gold Trend, which has produced some 23 million ounces of gold over the past 30 years, making it the second most productive belt in the state after the Carlin District.

Issued: 49,645,721 common shares.
