Aurora to Hold Public Information Meetings in Labrador on Tailings Management Options for the Proposed Michelin Project

ST. JOHN'S, NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR--(Marketwire - May 13, 2009) - As part of its ongoing commitment to consultation with residents of Labrador, Aurora Energy Resources Inc. ("Aurora" or "the Company") invites members of the public to 'designing for acceptance', a community information session on the tailings management options for the Michelin Project.

"Our team will make a presentation on the five tailings options that could safely be used to store tailings from the proposed Michelin Project and to explain how we arrived at these options," said Ches Andersen, Aurora's Vice President Labrador Affairs. "This will also be an interactive event with a 3D model of the site, animations, and demonstrations."

Community members will see how Aurora conducted an objective process in determining the tailings management technologies that can be used to safely store tailings for the Michelin Project.

The feedback Aurora has received from community members thus far has provided valuable insight into public interests and views on the development. "While we are in the early stages of the tailings management decision process, we encourage community members to attend and participate in this important discussion," added Mr. Andersen.

The public information session schedule is as follows:
