Aurelius Minerals Files Technical Report
The Company also announces that Company has filed a technical report for the Aureus West Property (the “Property”), located in Nova Scotia, that was acquired on May 4, 2020. The Aureus West technical report is available on the Company’s profile at www.sedar.com and on the Company’s website at www.aureliusminerals.com.
The Company retained Global Mineral Resource Services to prepare and address the technical report to Aurelius, based on historical work and the technical report previously filed by a prior owner of the Property. Other than updates to reflect Aurelius’ acquisition of the Property and non-material clerical changes, the content of the technical report is consistent with the technical report filed by a prior owner on SEDAR. While the Company has begun planning and has initiated some work on the Property, the Company has not completed any additional substantive work on the Property since acquisition.
Aurelius is a well-positioned gold exploration company focused on advancing gold projects in Ontario’s Abitibi Greenstone Belt along with the just acquired and renamed Aureus Gold Properties, including the Aureus East and West Gold Projects, the Tangier Gold Project and the Forest Hill Gold Project located in Nova Scotia and described in detail in the Company’s press release of November 18, 2019.
Aurelius is also focused on advancing two district-scale gold projects in the Abitibi Greenstone Belt in Ontario, Canada, one of the world’s most prolific mining districts; the 968-hectare Mikwam Property, in the Burntbush area on the Casa Berardi trend and the 12,425-hectare Lipton Property, on the Lower Detour Trend.
The Company has a sound management team with experience in all facets of the mineral exploration and mining industry who will be considering additional acquisitions of advanced staged opportunities in the Abitibi and other proven mining districts.
Mr. Jeremy Niemi, P.Geo. and Vice President, Exploration of Aurelius and the Company’s Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101, has reviewed and approved the technical information in this release.

Generally, this forward-looking information can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as “plans”, “expects” , “is expected”, “budget”, “scheduled”, “estimates”, “forecasts”, “intends”, “anticipates” , “believes”, or variations or comparable language of such words and phrases or statements that certain actions, events or results “may”, “could”, “would”, “should”, “might” or “will be taken”, “occur” or “be achieved” or the negative connotation thereof. Forward-looking information is necessarily based upon a number of factors and assumptions that, if untrue, could cause the actual results, performances or achievements of Aurelius to be materially different from future results, performances or achievements expressed or implied by such statements. Such statements and information are based on numerous assumptions regarding present and future business strategies and the environment in which Aurelius will operate in the future, including the price of gold, anticipated costs and ability to achieve goals.

Although Aurelius believes its expectations are based upon reasonable assumptions and has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual actions, events or results to differ materially from those described in forward-looking information, there may be other factors that cause actions, events or results not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended.
