Aurogin Acquires Bridge Gold Property in Guatemala Drilling Shows 14.5 g/t Over 6.1m

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Sept. 21, 2005) - Aurogin Resources Ltd. ("Aurogin") (TSX VENTURE:AUQ) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an option agreement to earn a 70% interest in the Bridge gold property located four kilometers west of Aurogin's El Sastre Gold deposit, 30 km northeast of Guatemala City, Guatemala. To earn its 70%, Aurogin must spend $500,000 on exploration and pay the vendors $240,000 in cash and issue 500,000 shares by the end of 2007. Aurogin must also complete a feasibility study and arrange production financing by the end of 2011.

The Bridge Zone consists of hot spring-related gold mineralization observed primarily in railroad embankments, trenches and outcrops along Rio Las Canas. Active hot springs located on the south bank of the river and just above the railroad tracks first drew attention to the property. These hot springs are actively depositing sulphur at the vent site. The underlying geology is comprised of friable carbonaceous argillite overlain by Tertiary felsic tuff and Quaternary ash.

Bridge exploration work traced the mineralization over a 600-meter by 300-meter area before it disappears under ash cover. Channel and trench samples within the mineralized unit at Bridge returned gold values in the 2 to 4 g/t range over significant widths including 3.59 g/t over 85 meters. The zone is open to the southeast, but rock sampling indicates that the zone weakens to the northwest, occurring as a broad zone greater than 200 meters in length of anomalous carbonaceous phyllite containing less than 1.0 g/t Au. The tuff units overlying the hot spring sites are locally silicified and sulfidized with anomalous Au, Ag, As and Sb values. Significant trench intersections include: 1.47g/t Au over 12.0 meters, 1.69g/t Au over 11.4 meters, 2.56g/t Au over 65.0 meters, and 3.43g/t Au over 100.0 meters.

Drilling conducted by Goldfields Mining and Radius Gold Inc. at the Bridge Zone intersected significant results including BZRC#1 with 146.3m @ 0.56g/t and BZRC#5 with 19.8m @ 7.29 g/t beginning at surface (including 6.1m @ 14.49g/t).


Aurogin plans to carry out additional drilling to the southeast where recent sampling by Aurogin returned values of 8.0 g/t from 4 m wide calcite veins. Bottle roll testing of this material gave a cyanide leach recovery of 83%. Drilling will also be done to extend the zone identified in hole BZRC#5.

"Bridge adds another dimension to our portfolio in Guatemala", said John H. Paterson, P.Eng, President and CEO of Aurogin. "This deposit is relatively untested while showing potential for quite high grade (possibly underground mineable) mineralization. The recent acquisition of Lupita, along with El Sastre provides Aurogin with a major property package containing gold deposits with excellent potential" he added.

Aurogin is currently completing detailed engineering on El Sastre, and is in discussions with several parties regarding debt and equity financing. Aurogin was granted environmental approval for El Sastre in August, 2005, and production from the open pit mine is scheduled to start in 2006 at a rate of 20,000 oz/yr, increasing to 40,000 oz/yr as more resources are defined. John H. Paterson, P.Eng. is the Qualified Person on this project.
