VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 9, 2011) - Aurizon (News - Market indicators)(NYSE Amex:AZK) ("Aurizon" or "the Company") is pleased to announce a new series of drill results from the exploration program on the Fayolle project located 20 kilometres north-east of Rouyn-Noranda, Québec and 10 kilometres north of Aurizon's Joanna project.

This exploration drilling program was performed at the same time as the drilling on the Fayolle deposit. Since May 2010, Aurizon has invested $5 million on these two drilling programs under the joint venture agreement announced on May 18, 2010 with Typhoon Exploration Inc ("Typhoon"). The Fayolle property is 100% owned by Typhoon and Aurizon can earn a 50% interest, subject to an underlying 2% net smelter royalty, by incurring expenditures of $10 million, and subscribing for $2 million in common shares of Typhoon, over four years. Aurizon can earn an additional 15% interest for a total interest of 65% by either delivering a feasibility study or spending an additional $15 million on the project.

To date, 18,832 metres distributed in 44 holes have been drilled along the 2.5 kilometre stretch of the Manneville Break that passes through the property. The objective of the program is to systematically cover favourable structures inside a 500 metre wide corridor extending up to 2 kilometres eastward. A drilling approach using widely spaced drilling, with holes 150 metres apart, following the different orientation of mineralization found at Fayolle was applied.

Drill results and associated geological interpretations have been received for holes FAX-10-01 to FAX-10-05 and FAX-11-01 to FAX-11-37.

"We are pleased that this first phase of drilling has identified a mineralized system, corresponding to a Fayolle deposit target size, in roughly 25% of the holes, from wide spaced drilling. The drill holes with highest grades or metal factors defined new targets, 400 metres wide, which will be used for prioritizing future drilling," said Martin Demers P.Geo., Exploration Manager.

The best result received in terms of grade is from the hole FAX-11-15 which returned 1,480 grams per tonne of gold over 1 metre. This intersection is located 1 kilometre east, south east of the Fayolle deposit. In addition, hole FAX-11-34 returned 1.3 grams per tonne over 36 metres including 29.9 grams per tonne over 1 metre and hole FAX-11-04B returned 2.7 grams per tonne of gold over 8 metres located approximately 600 metres south of the Fayolle deposit. Selected drill results with a metal factor above 5 (gram x thickness) are reported in a table at the end of this news release. Indicated lengths are distance along the drill core.

Vang Trend:

The intersection from hole FAX-11-15 is related to a quartz vein with visible gold inside an east, west trending gabbro intrusion. This gabbro extends for 1 kilometre and is associated with a polymetallic signature. All other intersections are mainly associated with altered dykes of intermediate composition, found in three west, north-west–east, south-east trending corridors. A few percent of finely disseminated pyrite are usually associated with the gold mineralization.

Fayolle Extension:

The Fayolle extension is actually the most northern gold bearing trend. It is related to major hematite altered dykes trending west-north-west in contact with basalt layers and cross cut by east-west trending mafic intrusions. This corridor is located directly in the extension of the Fayolle deposit with intersections from holes FAX-11-06 and FAX-11-26. Mineralization is concentrated mainly in dykes associated with finely disseminated pyrite.

Paré trend:

This structure is located immediately south of the Fayolle deposit and shares similarities such as dismembered intermediate dykes interlayered with strongly deformed and carbonated komatiite flows associated with minor sediments and gabbro intrusion. General orientation of main units remains east-west but cross faults are suspected. Mineralization as described in intersections from holes FAX-11-04B and FAX-11-28 and FAX-11-33 and is mainly associated with disseminated pyrite in altered intermediate dykes brecciated by hematite veinlets.

Vang Extension:

Vang Extension is the southern gold trend. It marks the contact with a regional sedimentary layer to the south and altered intermediate dyke and brecciated komatiite complex similar to the Fayolle deposit. As for the deposit, the general orientation of the Vang Extension trend (geology and mineralization) has a strong west, north-west, east-south-east component. Cross cutting structures with a north-south to north, north-east, south, south-west orientation could have a strong impact on the location of gold mineralization. The results from holes FAX-10-05, FAX-11-01, FAX-11-05 and FAX-11-34 come from strongly brecciated komatiite and altered intermediate dykes. This context is very similar to the Fayolle deposit.

Quality Control and Qualified Person

All drill core is oriented using Fordia's "Corientr" tool to measure the geological structures of the drill core. Core assays are performed on core sawed in half, with standard fire assay procedures and atomic absorption finish. Certified reference material, duplicate and blanks are inserted in the sample sequence for quality control. Primary assaying is performed by ALS Chemex of Val d'Or. The rejects for all samples returning >10 g/t Au are totally pulverized and re-assayed.

Information of a scientific or technical nature included in this release has been prepared under the supervision of Martin Demers, P. Geo., Exploration Manager of Aurizon and Qualified Person under NI 43-101.
