TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - October 04, 2016) -


Aura Minerals Inc. (the "Company") (TSX: ORA) announces that further to the Company's press release dated October 3rd with respect to closing the Company's rights offering (the "Rights Offering") for gross proceeds of CAD$5,451,942:

  • The number of Common Shares issued pursuant to the basic subscription privilege was 31,822,000 common shares. Of these, 24,670,525 Common Shares were issued to persons who were insiders before the closing of the Rights Offering, and 7,151,475 Common Shares were issued to all other persons.
  • The number of Common Shares issued pursuant to the additional subscription privilege was 4,524,284. Of these, 3,498,786 Common Shares were issued to persons who were insiders before the closing of the Rights Offering, and 1,025,498 Common Shares were issued to all other persons.

Jim Bannantine, the Company's President & CEO commented, "We are very happy to see such a high level of participation across our shareholder base. We feel like this was a very good way for our existing shareholders to help in funding the restart and expansion of our important Ernesto Pau a Pique project, which will take the place of our Sao Francisco gold production in Brazil next year."

To the knowledge of the Company, after reasonable inquiry, no persons became an insider of the Company from the distribution under the Rights Offering.

As the total number of Common Shares issued under the Rights Offering was greater than the backstop commitment, no Common Shares were issued pursuant to the backstop commitment with Northwestern Enterprises Ltd. No fees or commissions were payable in connection with the backstop commitment and the Company did not retain any party to solicit subscriptions on its behalf.

Following the Rights Offering, the Company has 327,116,557 Common Shares issued and outstanding.
