Vancouver, British Columbia, 21. October 2013- Aurcana Corporation ("Aurcana" or the "Company") (TSXV: EVEN, OTCQX: AUNFF) gives its production results for the 3. Quarter 2013 known.


• The total output of silver equivalents amounted to 3. Quarter 2013 about 748.294 Oz, what about an increase 4 % to 718.063 Ounces 3. Quarter 2012 corresponds.

• The amount of ore was processed in 3. Quarter 2013 about 221.118 Tons, what about an increase 12 % compared to the in 3. Quarter 2012 generated amount of 196.843 Tons of equivalent.

• The amount of ore was mined in the 3. Quarter 2013 about 207.458 Tons, what about an increase 6 % compared to the same quarter in 2012 generated amount of 196.401 Tons of equivalent.

• The total output of silver equivalents amounted in the first 9 Months of the year 2013 about 2.158.858 Oz, which is an increase of 14 % towards the delivery of 1.899.280 Silver equivalent ounces in the same period of the previous year.

• The total amount of ore was processed in the first 9 Months of the year 2013 about 626.586 Tons, what about an increase 24 % towards the 504.005 Equivalent tons of ore processed in the same period of the previous year.

• The total amount of ore was mined in the first 9 Months of the year 2013 about 656.988 Tons, what about an increase 39 % towards the 472.557 Equivalent tons of mined ore in the same period of the previous year.

Current situation in the La Negra Mine

In the 3. Quarter 2013 were average in operating La Negra 2.622 Processed tons per day (t/d). The lower than expected throughput rate for the quarter is to machine failures and unusually heavy rainfall, have hampered mining operations, back.

During the quarter were at La Negra especially the more accessible high-grade copper- machined and zinc zones, what greater yields with copper- and had the effect of zinc concentrate. This also had the existing copper- be retrofitted and zinc filter presses. There have already been major new filter presses for copper- ordered and zinc concentrate, in the 4. Quarter 2013 should be put into operation.

Because of these improvements and the planned repairs of plant parts should be available from the 1. Quarter 2014 higher long-term production rates of around 3.000 Tons per day can be. In the meantime, the throughput rate is the 4. Quarter 2013 expected at approximately 2.200 Settle tons per day.

The development work at the mine continued during the quarter with the aim of, to open new areas and to achieve sustained higher production rates in the future as. As a result, a larger ore portion was recovered from the circulation zones, which has led to a greater dilution. The maximum level of the processed ore in the quarter was therefore well below the historical average. For 2014 is planned, penetrate the mineralized zones with higher silver values ​​in the upper portions of the lead La Negra. This Erzschächte and ventilation systems need to be built, whose construction after delivery of the necessary drilling equipment in 1. Quarter 2014 starting.

Current Situation in der Mine Shafter

Upon successful completion of the 50 $ Million funding in September 2013 is done on the necessary improvements in operating Shafter, the capacity as scheduled on 1.500 Tonnen pro Tag im 2. Quarter 2014 to increase.

Aurcana has so far achieved the following progress:

• Two new filter presses for processing residues with a filtering capacity of up to 1.500 Tons per day were built and are now operating as planned.

• Three new filter presses for precipitants were also built, is currently in the commissioning of the refinery instead.

• A new, tailored to the needs of local retort furnace is expected in December 2013 delivered.

• The development of day with the assistance of a contractor is progressing.

• Currently, a counter current decantation system (CCD) built, which is expected in 2. Quarter 2014 is completed.

• New employees are continuously adjusted, to the staff to expand with higher-skilled workers.
