("Aura Minerals" or the "Company") (News - Market indicators) is pleased to announce preliminary 2012 fourth quarter and full year production results and guidance for 2013 production and capital expenditure. All dollar figures are in United States dollars unless otherwise indicated. 

Preliminary Operating Results - 2012

The Company produced 49,472 ounces ("oz") of gold in the fourth quarter ("Q4") of 2012, representing a 13% increase over 43,863 oz gold produced in Q4 2011 and a 15% increase over the third quarter ("Q3") 2012 gold production of 43,059 oz.

In 2012, Aura Minerals produced 172,479 oz of gold, representing an 8% increase over 160,159 oz produced in 2011. Full year gold production for 2012 was in line with originally provided guidance for 2012 and at the higher end of the range updated in Q3 2012.

Aura Minerals' full year 2012 preliminary gold production per mine is as follows:

Gold Mines - Preliminary Production Q4 Oz Produced1 2012 Oz Production1

Total 49,472 172,479
1 Subject to change until 2012 audited annual financial statements are filed with regulatory authorities.

The Company's Aranzazu Mine produced 2,044,000 pounds ("lb") of contained copper in Q4 2012, as compared to 2,856,500 lb of contained copper in Q4 2011 and 2,450,800 lb of contained copper in Q3 2012. In 2012, Aranzazu produced 10,801,000 lb of contained copper, representing a 40% increase over the 7,695,300 lb of contained copper produced in 2011.

Production and Capital Expenditure Guidance - 2013

The Company announces the following production and cash cost per oz2 guidance for the 2013 calendar year:

Gold Mines - 2013 Cash Cost per oz2 2013 Production
San Andres Mine $1,000 - $1,150 60,000 - 65,000 oz
Sao Francisco Mine $1,100 - $1,250 78,000 - 88,000 oz
Sao Vicente Mine $ 950 - $1,100 28,000 - 32,000 oz
Total $1,050 - $1,200 166,000 - 185,000 oz
2 A cautionary note regarding non-GAAP measures is included at the end of this press release.

Aranzazu's production for 2013 is expected to be between 13,000,000 and 15,000,000 lb of copper at a range of $3.10 to $3.60 cash cost per payable lb2 of copper.

For 2013, capital spending is expected to be $101M. Of this amount, $53M relates to growth and sustaining capital for existing mines - including $36M on the Aranzazu expansion and roaster installation and $7M on Phase V of the heap leach expansion and community expenditures at San Andres. The remaining $48M relates to the development of the Serrote da Laje ("Serrote") Project in Brazil.

The Company is currently optimizing the Sao Francisco mine plan in order to maximize the remaining cash flows. It is anticipated that, with current information available, mining activity at Sao Francisco will cease in late 2013 and mine closure in the first half of 2014. The Company will provide additional details as they become available. Sao Vicente's mining activity will cease in mid-2013 and its mine closure is scheduled for early 2014.

The disclosure of technical information in this news release has been reviewed and approved by Bruce Butcher, P. Eng., Vice President, Technical Services, a qualified person as defined in NI 43-101.

Non-GAAP Measures

This news release includes certain non-GAAP performance measures, in particular, the average cash cost of gold per oz and average cash cost per payable pound of copper are non-GAAP performance measures. These non-GAAP measures do not have any standardized meaning within IFRS and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. The Company believes that these measures provide investors with additional information which is useful in evaluating the Company's performance and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS.

Average cash costs per oz of gold or per payable pound of copper are presented as they represent an industry standard method of comparing certain costs on a per unit basis. Total cash costs of gold produced include on-site mining, processing and administration costs, off-site refining and royalty charges, reduced by silver by-product credits, but exclude amortization, reclamation, and exploration costs, as well as capital expenditures. Total cash costs of gold produced are divided by oz produced to arrive at per oz cash costs. Similarly, total cash costs of copper produced include the above costs, and are net of gold and silver by-products, but include offsite treatment and refining charges. Total cash costs of copper produced are divided by payable pounds of copper produced to arrive at per payable pound cash costs.
