AuRico Gold Provides An Update On The 2012 El Chanate Exploration Program

"Rono" Area RC Holes Location:

A third zone of mineralization ("Loma Prieta") has been discovered approximately 1.2 kilometers southeast of the ultimate pit. Six holes (CHCI-705, 716, 717, 725, 727 and 747) intersected mineralization at less than 70 metres depth. The zone is somewhat atypical of El Chanate mineralization in that there is a higher grade portion, on occasion in excess of 10 g/t gold, rather than a broad zone of disseminated mineralization. Although the size of this zone is limited by drilling to the northwest and volcanic rocks immediately to the southeast, the discovery is encouraging in that the trend of this mineralization is the same as that of the main El Chanate deposit and is untested for three and a half kilometres along trend on the El Chanate concessions.

"Loma Prieta" Area RC Holes Location:

Chris Rockingham, V.P. Exploration commented "This is the first time that AuRico's exploration program at El Chanate has focused on understanding the potential for extending the open pit mineralization beyond the existing ore body. The new discoveries at El Chanate are directly on trend from the open pit and represent a strong indication of potential resource growth. This year's exploration program and the success based plan proposed for next year, will continue to focus on follow-up drilling in these areas and beyond, to further evaluate the significant exploration potential at El Chanate."

Quality Control - Analyses and Sample Location

Details of quality assurance/quality control procedures for sample analysis and drill hole survey methodology are reported in detail in the Canadian National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects ("NI 43-101") compliant Technical Reports filed on SEDAR ( on November 27, 2009 for El Chanate. Gold analyses for the project were performed by an independent, accredited commercial laboratory using standard fire assay procedures with an AA finish. The Company maintains a Quality Assurance - Quality Control program including the insertion of commercial control reference pulps and blanks in all its drill programs, along with a dedicated QA-QC person to monitor results. Sample lengths are not necessarily true widths.
