Canadian Orebodies Stakes New Iron Property Near Haig Inlet Iron Ore Project

Toronto, Ontario – Oct. 31, 2011 – Canadian Orebodies Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CO) (“Orebodies”) is pleased to announce that it has staked claims covering over 9,600 hectares (“Staked Claims”) on the Belcher Islands, Nunavut.

The area staked by Orebodies covers over 9,600 hectares of Municipal Land on the western coast of Flaherty Island to the west of Haig Inlet. Results of historic magnetic geophysical surveying carried out over the Staked Claims during the 1950’s by Belcher Mining Corporation Ltd. indicate magnetic signatures comparable to those occurring on the Haig Inlet Property. The defined magnetic signature trends over the entire 29.4km length of the Staked Claims, and was verified to be iron formation through ground truthing where an outcropping of the formation directly coincided with the magnetic signature. The formation is interpreted to be a parallel western extension of the Kipalu Formation of iron-bearing rocks, which is the same formation being targeted at Haig Inlet. The Staked Claims are considered to contain a highly prospective exploration target area, which possesses strong potential for the discovery of additional iron mineralization that Orebodies believes could be amenable to open pit mining.

Aura Silver Uses Soil Gas Hydrocarbon Technology To Locate High-Grade Gold And Silver Sources At Aura Lake, Greyhound Project, NU

October 26, 2011

Aura Silver Resources Inc. (TSX-V:AUU) (“Aura Silver” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has identified possible distinct sources of the high-grade gold and high-grade silver surface samples found in close proximity to Aura Lake on its wholly-owned Greyhound project in Nunavut. As previously reported (see press release Sept. 7, 2010), Aura Silver’s prospecting has identified multiple surface rock samples ranging up to 5,300 g/t silver carrying little gold and up to 28 g/t gold with negligible silver.
