Aurcana Corporation ("Aurcana" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that Mr. Adrian Aguirre has agreed to join the Board of Directors.

Mr. Aguirre, 58 years old, is a resident of Mexico City and has many business interests including being Vice Chairman of Maxcom Telecomunicaciones, a NYSE listed provider of telecommunications in Mexico. Previous to his involvement with Maxcom, Mr. Aguirre was the Chief Executive Officer of Grupo Radio Centro, a NYSE company, and Mexico's leading radio broadcaster. Mr. Aguirre is also a Certified Professional Accountant ("CPA") and will be a member of Aurcana's audit and compensation committees. 

Aurcana President, Ken Booth states: "We are very pleased to have Adrian join our board. His business background and extensive relationships in Mexico will be beneficial to Aurcana as the Company pursues its "Silver Growth Strategy" in Mexico and Texas".

About Aurcana Corporation:

Aurcana Corporation's strategy is Growth through Acquisition. The 100% owned Shafter silver mine in Presidio County, Texas, which was acquired in July 2008 represents the third acquisition in two years. 

The Shafter silver mine has a NI 43-101 measured and indicated resource of 42 million ounces of silver and an inferred resource of 45 million ounces of silver. The 80% owned La Negra mine in Queretaro State, Mexico, is a copper-silver-lead-zinc mine and has operated at 1,000 tonnes per day since Q3, 2007. The 100% owned Rosario mine in Sinaloa State, Mexico, is an advanced stage lead-zinc-silver exploration project. The reader should be cautioned the Company has not completed feasibility studies confirming the projected production capacity for La Negra, Shafter or Rosario and there is no certainty the Company's plans will be economically viable.

AURCANA CORPORATION

"Ken Booth", President
