TORONTO, July 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

AuRico Gold Inc. (TSX: AUQ) (NYSE: AUQ), ("AuRico" or the "Company") today announces preliminary second quarter operational results. All amounts are in U.S. dollars unless otherwise indicated.

Production and cash costs in the second quarter were in-line with plan at both operations.

Once commissioned, the shaft and hoisting system will drive enhanced underground productivities and unit cost efficiencies over the remainder of the year.
