La Negra Drill Hole Results Confirm High Grade Continuity in the Northeast and Northwest Trends


January 24, 2013

Vancouver, BC, January 24, 2013- Aurcana Corporation ("Aurcana" or the "Company") (TSXV: AUN, OTCQX: AUNFF) is pleased to report the results of the La Negra Mine 2012 underground drill program for drill holes that were not associated with the 43-101 Resource Estimate Report released on October 11, 2012.

Drill holes reported in the tables below indicate excellent intersected widths, and continuity of high grades in the Northeast Trend (Breccia Zone,1920 level) as well as the in Northwest Trend (Elia, 2300 level, Virginia, 2280 level).

Highlights
  • Hole Dvir-290 intersected 2.9 meters grading 466 gm/t Ag, 3.11% Pb, 4.25% Zn, 0.77% Cu including 15.1 meters grading 180 gm/t Ag, 1.33% Pb, 2.42% Zn, 0.37% Cu.
  • Hole Dvir-292 intersected 28.05 meters grading 128 gm/t Ag, 0.49% Pb, 0.93% Zn, 0.85% Cu.
  • Hole Dvir-302 intersected 5.15 meters grading 349 gm/t Ag, 1.75% Pb, 2.15% Zn, 0.71% Cu, and 6.6 meters grading 140 gm/t Ag, 0.89% Pb, 1.74% Zn, 0.17% Cu.

Northwest Trend

Eleven holes tested the continuity of the Virginia Zone below the 2280 level. Drill results indicate silver values range from 93 gm/t Ag to 466 gm/t Ag.

Highlights are:

  • Hole Dvir-292: 28.05 meters 128 gm/t Ag, 0.49% Pb, 0.93% Zn, 0.85% Cu. and
  • Hole Dvir - 302: two zones, 6.60 m 140 gm/t Ag, 0.89% Pb, 1,74% Zn, 0.17 % Cu and 5,15 m 349 gm/t Ag, 1,75 % Pb, 2.15% Zn, 0.71 % Cu.

Seventeen holes have defined the Elia Zone below the 2300 level. Intersected widths ranged from 1.15m to 15.75 m. and significant silver values range from 92 gm/t Ag to 180 gm/t Ag.

Highlights are:

  • Hole Deli- 319: 15.75 meters of 137gm/t Ag, 0.96 % Pb, 4.11 % Zn, 0.34 % Cu and
  • Hole 339 -- 9.85 m. grading 111 gm/t Ag, 0,42 % Pb, 0.63 % Zn, 1.35 % Cu.

Northeast Trend

The continuity of the Breccia Zone below the 1920 Level is well supported by the results obtained from eleven holes.

Highlight are:

  • Hole Lybx-12: 9.30 m. of 107 gm/t Ag, 0.39 % Pb, 1.47 % Zn, 0.51 % Cu.
  • Hole Lybx -14: 15.55 m. grading 108 gm/t Ag, 0.39 % Pb, 2.39 % Zn, 0.62% Cu.
