Aurcana Announces Commercial Production at Shafter 1 Year, 7 Months ago Karma: 69
They are "on the rock!"
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec 14, 2012) - Aurcana Corporation ("Aurcana" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:AUN)(AUNFF) is pleased to announce that the commissioning and testing phase has been successfully completed and the Shafter Mine in Texas is now in commercial production.

Mr. Lenic Rodriguez, President and CEO of Aurcana Corporation, said: "I am very pleased to announce that commercial production at Shafter mine in Texas has started. By commencing production at Shafter, Aurcana achieves yet another important milestone in our pursuit to become a senior silver producer."

Shafter Commercial Production Updates

The assets at the Shafter Mine are ready for their intended use and the plant is now operating on a continuous basis at an average rate of 600tpd.
The secondary escape-way has been completed and the mine has received all necessary permits, allowing for the underground mining to start.
The mine had commenced developing 3 underground stopes and these stopes are currently producing ore.
Processing of lower grade open pit ore, initially mined during the plant commissioning and testing phase, has been discontinued. The plant is currently processing higher grade underground ore exclusively.
The Shafter Mine currently employs 152 personnel allowing for a continuous operation. Additional underground miners have been recruited and will join the Shafter mine in January 2013, as the Shafter mine ramps up.
Aurcana has implemented a production ramp up plan to gradually increase production towards the phase I planned capacity of 1,500tpd, as mining operations proceed.
As part of the ramp up plan, the installation of additional thickener tanks, increasing the processing capacity of the plant, will be commissioned early Q1, 2013. In addition, upgraded filters will be installed in Q2 2013.
Initial production results from the Shafter mine are expected to be included in Aurcana''s Q1 2013 financial results.

Good news Brian!

Obviously this means that Aurcana should now shoot higher, as it's days of being valued as a one-mine silver operator are over. BUT, since the banksters are not allowing these miners to be fairly valued at the present time we likely will not see any "big move."

Rather, we file-away these developments in our minds (and ADD some more shares if we have extra cash). Right now our job is not to find "undervalued miners" -- because they are ALL ridiculously undervalued.

Our job is to make a list of THE most-undervalued companies, and then to spread out our mining investment dollars amongst this "basket" of companies...

Even at 600 tpd, this is an annual rate approaching 1.5 M Oz for Shafter alone. La Negra is doing roughly that much already. They (Shafter) should be ramping up to 1500 tpd over the first 2 quarters of 2013. 1500 TPD should generate nearly 4 M Oz/year rate. Together with LaNegra by next years end, 6-7M Oz pace. That jumps them over Integra, Fortuna, Great Panther, Endeavour et al. It will have them closing in on First Majestics' output. Again, the only downside is the 550M S/O. The organic growth of this company should make "Trading" it obsolete. I think of it as the bank of Aurcana. Put the money in, and watch it accrue. Disclosure, its in my "Basket."

Good stuff Brian!

Yes, my one consolation in not having the time to "actively manage" my own portfolio is that some (many?) of my holdings are companies where it's simply a matter of "letting the numbers do the talking."

Just like the bankers could DELAY the rise in the price of silver from under $4/oz and the price of gold from under $300 -- but they could not prevent it. Barring some unforeseeable internal disaster, producing miners like this MUST be revalued higher, and likely sooner rather than later.

That said, I didn't realize they were moving into the same bracket as a First Majestic.

Here are some interesting numbers:

Aurcana share price: $1.03
Aurcana shares outstanding: 550 million

First Majestic share price: $22.50
Fist Majestic shares outstanding: 120 million

If we compared them at the most simplistic level, this implies the share price of Aurcana rising to roughly $5/share -- just to be as poorly-valued as First Majestic is today.

Now obviously we CAN'T simply make simplistic comparisons like this as investors. We need to look at profit margins, future growth profiles (AFTER Shafter is fully on-line), mineral reserves, etc.

However, this is precisely how "value investors" make money: they look at comparable companies -- and try to find those where one of the companies is grossly undervalued versus the other(s).

Do your due diligence here folks (I'm also an Aurcana shareholder), but at least to some respect here "the numbers don't lie".

Quality Assurance - Quality Control

Cut core samples are registered on a chain of custody form and delivered directly to the reception section of the La Negra Mine Laboratory by the geology department on a daily basis.

Standard QA-QC procedures at laboratory include the use of duplicates, standards, and blank samples. A barren sample, a duplicate and a standard sample are routinely inserted for every 30 samples sent to the lab by the geology department. The mine laboratory also follows an internal verification program by inserting a check pulp sample for every 10 samples.

Gold and silver are analyzed by fire assay. Lead, zinc, copper, arsenic, bismuth, and antimony are assayed by Atomic Absorption. A standard sample from a qualified laboratory in Canada is inserted with every 15 samples for quality control. External analytical controls are maintained by sending 20-30 pulp samples per month to ALS Chemex in Vancouver.

Re: Aurcana Announces Commercial Production at Shafter 1 Year, 6 Months ago Karma: 69
Saw the NR. The resource keeps getting bigger at La Negra. Meanwhile there has been a fair amount of mining going on at Shafter since June. Commercial levels for about a month. I would think the stock will revalue after the next quarterly report. This one has been slow unfolding. Nothing unusual in that really.

Re: Aurcana Announces Commercial Production at Shafter 1 Year, 6 Months ago Karma: 261
For newer investors/readers, the point to make here is that the ONLY excuse for Aurcana not already being revalued to a more realistic price-level would be "mine life".

The mines are now running, the (current) production is there. Thus demonstrating a large (and high-grade) resource is the final component to having an optimal business model for this company.

This one should already be at $3/share (or higher), but then ALL these miners are only trading at a fraction of their real value. Put another way, if these were BANKS achieving these operating results we would see ALL the share prices with an extra zero behind them...

AUN, La Negr, skarn, surface sampling show gold... 1 Year, 5 Months ago Karma: 69
Surface rock samples, but this will give direction for surface drilling. Promising

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb 11, 2013) - Aurcana Corporation ("Aurcana" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:AUN)(AUNFF)(AUNFF) is pleased to announce the results of the 2012 surface mapping program at the La Negra Mine.

The objective of the program was to map and sample the upward projection of the known mineralized zones within the mine, and to identify new, untested exploration targets associated with the favorable northwest and northeast mine trends. Most of this area has not been extensively explored, sampled or drilled. Approximately 420 hectares were mapped at 1:2000 scale and 1,117 samples were collected from skarn and intrusive outcrops.

Mr. Lenic Rodriguez, Aurcana''s President & CEO, states: "We are very pleased to report today significant exploration results and new discoveries at La Negra. The presence of gold associated with strong silver, zinc and lead values in new areas tested is very encouraging. While historically gold production has not been a major source of revenue at La Negra, and the potential economic significance of these results is not known, these results are of strong interest to us. The ramp-up at Shafter, increase in mining capacity at La Negra and excellent exploration results, are indeed exciting times for Aurcana."

Highlights
•Zona Aurifera I, returned strong assay values including: •15.3 gm/t Au and 261 gm/t Ag;
•12 gm/t Au and 105 gm/t Ag;
•10.0 gm/t Au and 381 gm/t Ag;

•Zona Aurifera II also returned strong assay values including: •2.8 gm/t Au and 229 gm/t Ag;
•2.4 gm/t Au and 307 gm/t Ag;
•2.8 gm/t Au and 95 gm/t Ag;


La Negra Exploration Program

The exploration program has outlined six exploration targets. All areas indicate some presence of gold, with two zones, designated Aurifera I and II, returning the greatest number of gold values per total number of samples collected (32% and 29%). Assay values range from 0.2 gm/t to 15.3 gm/t Au and are associated with strong silver, lead and zinc values, as well as geochemically anomalous bismuth and arsenic. All are within skarn similar to that currently being mined and several have favorable metal assemblages including copper, lead, zinc and most notably silver and gold.

Current detailed mapping and sampling are focused on the Aurifera I and II zones and on the El Alacran Norte zone to determine size and average grade. The Aurifera II zone has not been fully delimited to date.

The location of the Aurifera I and II zones is at the southern contact of the main diorite intrusion. Oxidized, fracture controlled mineralization is hosted in massive skarn.

El Alacran Norte is located on the northern contact of the main diorite intrusion. Oxidized Ag-Pb-Zn-Cu mineralization is hosted in skarn horizons.

The La Negra mine was initially in production from 1971 to 2000, then acquired form Penoles and placed back into production by Aurcana in 2007. The mine is accessed through portals at the base of a mountain, and the mineral resource is established by underground diamond drilling programs. The potential for extensions of these resources in the upper portion of the mountain and the deep extensions have not been pursued since Aurcana acquired the property. As such, these results are seen to be a step towards recognizing the greater potential of the La Negra mineralized zones.

(See original press release for sample results)
finance.yahoo.com/news/discoveries-aurca...-mine-130000794.html



Quality Assurance - Quality Control

One meter chip samples were collected from fresh rock after oxidized surface material was removed. For every 10 samples a blank of un-mineralized country rock and a duplicate sample was inserted. Sample locations were marked with metal tags and were photographed. Samples were bagged and sent to the ALS Prep Lab in Mexico. Pulps were submitted to the ALS Chemex Laboratory in Vancouver and analyzed for 49 elements (ME-M41). High copper, lead, zinc and silver values were re-analyzed using ore grade analysis. Gold values have not been confirmed by Fire Assay.

Blanks and duplicates were checked for conformity with lab results.

Some pretty healthy GOLD numbers in those intercepts, to go along with the robust silver numbers.

Aurcana Announces Proposed Share Consolidation

MarketwirePress Release: Aurcana Corporation – 4 hours ago

finance.yahoo.com/news/aurcana-announces...ation-133000977.html

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb 13, 2013) - Aurcana Corporation ("Aurcana" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:AUN)(AUNFF)(AUNFF) is pleased to announce that is proposing a consolidation of its issued and outstanding common shares on the basis of one (1) post-consolidation common share for every eight (8) pre-consolidation common shares.

"After carefully considering Aurcana''s growth and strategic objectives, we believe that a consolidation could provide significant benefits to the company and its shareholders. This change may open the door to a large base of potential new investors and will qualify the company for a possible dual listing on a U.S. or other major stock exchange. This is an important step in Aurcana''s strategic efforts to become a senior silver producer," said Mr. Lenic Rodriguez, President & CEO.

Rationale

A share consolidation of the company''s issued and outstanding common shares is in line with Aurcana''s strategic and growth objectives to become a major senior silver producer.

This action has no impact on the company''s value or future cash flows.

While there are no guarantees, there may be important benefits that the proposed consolidation could provide, including:

- A higher post consolidation price per share could make Aurcana eligible for investment by a large base of potential new investors, who cannot otherwise invest below a minimum per share value.
- A larger investors pool may also result in a possible increase in trading volumes.
- A higher post consolidation price per share could also improve the company''s ability to pursue a dual listing on a major exchange and finance in the market, if warranted in the future.
- An increase in the share price in absolute dollar terms may improve the market perception of Aurcana''s stock.
- The proposed consolidation could also align the company''s number of outstanding shares relative to its peers.

If approved, the Consolidation would reduce the Company''s 467,157,647 issued and outstanding Common Shares to approximately 58,394,706 Common Shares. The exercise or conversion price of outstanding stock options and warrants would be proportionately adjusted based upon the same consolidation ratio. The company name will remain unchanged after the consolidation.

The proposed Consolidation is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange and Aurcana''s shareholders.

Full details regarding the proposed consolidation will be included in the information circular to be mailed to all Aurcana shareholders of record on February 26, 2013 and posted on www.SEDAR.com in connection with the Special Meeting of Shareholders, which is scheduled to be held on Thursday, March 28, 2013.
