Aurogin Adds to Battle Mountain-Cortez Land Position

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Aug. 11, 2005) - Aurogin Resources Ltd. ("Aurogin")(TSX VENTURE:AUQ) is pleased to announce that it has increased its land position in the Battle Mountain-Cortez trend of Nevada. Aurogin's Lone Mountain claim group was expanded from 52 claims to 282 claims after Bravo Venture Group Inc. (TSX:BVG) ("Bravo") announced that it completed geochemical analyses of oil well cuttings identifying a 120-foot-thick interval of gold-bearing Roberts Mountains Formation in an oil well drilled in 1989 adjacent to Aurogin and Bravo's Claims. Aurogin's original claim block was staked in 2004 to cover a mineralized fault zone that truncates Lone Mountain which is a window into the Roberts Mountains Thrust Plate and a setting favourable for blind Carlin-type deposits on the valley side of the fault bounding range. After the discovery, Bravo and its partner Placer Dome US Inc. expanded their property by 1289 claims immediately adjacent to Aurogin's north-west property boundary. At the same time, Miranda Gold Corp. (TSX: MAD) staked 300 claims bordering Aurogin's north-east boundary (see map ).

Aurogin is currently in discussions with several potential partners interested in earning into the property.

"We are looking for a partner that will actively explore the property" said John Paterson, Aurogin President and CEO. "This will add value from this very exciting exploration play while allowing the company to focus on its primary objective of developing the El Sastre gold deposit in Guatemala." he added.

Aurogin's El Sastre Gold Project in Guatemala is currently in the permitting stage. Further information can be found on Aurogin's web site at:
