Aura Silver Initiates Ground Geophysics on Its High Grade Gold/Silver Property at Greyhound, NU

Ottawa, Ontario – Oct. 7, 2010 – Aura Silver Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:AUU) (“Aura Silver” or the “Company”) is pleased to report that it has initiated a ground-based induced polarization (IP) survey on its newly discovered gold and silver zone at Greyhound Lake in Nunavut, Canada. The IP survey is designed to outline specific targets for our next drill program on this highly prospective area. As previously reported (see press release #10-21, September 28, 2010), a recent soil sampling survey has determined that the high grade gold and silver samples that were collected in August, 2010 are likely indigenous to the east, south and south east of Aura Lake. Gold and associated elements are enriched over a 400,000 m2 area of the southern portion of Aura Lake that has, near its northwestern corner, a 30,000 m2 area containing the previously reported gold and silver-enriched rock samples, including seven samples that contain an average grade of 14.8 g/t Au (range from 0.3 to 28.8 g/t) and in the same area an average grade of 1,472 g/t Ag (range from 21-5,380 g/t). We have also discovered a potential volcanogenic-associated massive sulfide (VMS) system which exists further to the east and northeast of Aura Lake and this could be the source of the 18.5% zinc and 9.2% copper samples found to the west, 800m north of Aura Lake.
