Scoping study continues to progress well

battery initiative and separate listing

options remain active

Aura Energy Limited (AEE; ASX, AURA; AIM) is pleased to advise that drill assay results on the Häggån Vanadium Project have confirmed the high grade and continuous nature of the Häggån vanadium mineralistion.

To enable finalisation of the Häggån Vanadium Project Scoping Study infill drilling was carried out to achieve a Measured and Indicated Resource for Häggån.

The drilling not only confirmed the High Grade Zone but also intersected several areas of mineralisation with grades in excess of 0.6% V(2) O(5) . This very positive and unexpected outcome provides good potential for higher grade areas to be mined within the existing zone or in other zones within the broad Häggån Resource.

The most significant results[1] were as follows;

   --    103 metres at 0.41 % V2O5 in hole 19DDHG085 
   --    101 metres at 0.43 % V2O5 in hole 19DDHG089, including 68 metres at 0.5% V2O5 
   --    93 metres at 0.41 % V2O5 in hole 19DDHG084 
   --    78 metres at 0.43 % V2O5 in hole 19DDHG083 
   --    71 metres at 0.43 % V2O5 in hole 19DDHG080 
   --    54 metres at 0.45 % V2O5 in hole 19DDHG090 

Drilling consisted of 2930 metres of diamond drilling in 22 drillholes to test the top 140 metres of vanadium mineralisation. The drilling was conducted during the Swedish winter months. Following corelogging, density determination, cutting and sampling, assay results have now been received.

The assay data is currently with Aura's resource consultants who are in the process of completing a re-estimation of the Häggån poly-metallic resource.

Peter Reeve, Aura's Executive Chairman, commented "This drilling has confirmed our expectations in this high grade zone. We are very pleased with the thickness and continuity of these high vanadium grade intersections and the positive implications this has for the operating, and particularly mining, phase of the the Häggån Vanadium Project".

"The current High Grade Zone remains open for expansion and there is also the potential for repeat zones of a similar grade", he continued.

The recent drilling program was designed to upgrade a sufficient portion of the resource to Measured and Indicated status in order to comply with JORC and ASX guidelines.

Importantly this drilling has not defined the limits of the higher grade zone either laterally or at depth providing potential for the High Grade Vanadium Zone to be extended.

Depth to the top of the mineralisation in the 28 drillholes in this high grade zone averaged 27 metres which confirms the low stripping ratio of the future/planned mining operation.

The area covered by the recent drilling in this high grade zone covers only a small portion of the giant Häggån Resource (See Figure 2) leaving potential for repeats of the current zone to be discovered within proximity of the current resource.

All major technical work for the Häggån Scoping Study has now been completed as per schedule with the final report being assembled currently. The Haggan Scoping Study will be released in September, coinciding with the opening of business and close of the holiday period in Europe and Sweden.

Aura continues to review the potential for an IPO of the Häggån Vanadium Project and this activity remains current however somewhat dependent on the current turbulent market conditions. Similarly, the initiative to incorporate battery manufacturing remains active and discussions remain ongoing.

Aura's Häggån deposit currently has an Inferred Resource of 800 million lbs at 0.42% V2O5[2] (at a 0.4% lower cutoff - refer Table 1). Refer Aura ASX announcement of 23 May 2018 : New Resource Estimate - Haggan Battery Metals project.

The recent infill drill pattern shown in Figure 3, illustrates that the majority of the high grade vanadium resource is in area already cleared.

 Data aggregation methods   In reporting Exploration Results, weighting averaging             Grades reported are

                            Where aggregate intercepts incorporate short lengths of high 
                            grade results and longer lengths 
                            of low grade results, the procedure used for such aggregation 
                            should be stated and some typical 
                            examples of such aggregations should be shown in detail. 
                            The assumptions used for any reporting of metal equivalent 
                            values should be clearly stated.
