ROAD TOWN, British Virgin Islands, Nov. 13, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aura Minerals, Inc. (“Aura Minerals” or the “Company”) announces that the Company has filed today its interim financial statements for the third quarter of 2020, its associated management’s discussion and analysis and related certification filings for the third quarter of 2020 (collectively, the “Third Quarter Results”).

Rodrigo Barbosa, CEO of Aura, comments: “We at Aura are very pleased with both our quarterly results and the new trajectory for the company. Not only did we start this quarter with a successful IPO in Brazil, significantly strengthening our balance sheet and our support base, but also we delivered on our promises: Stronger production, lower cost and continued profit growth. Today, we published another record high result for Aura. Our team was able to achieve these results while also focusing on the safety of our employees, rigorously implementing procedures to avoid spread of COVID-19 within our operations, allowing us to resume near full production in our operations. The Q3 results shows that we continue to increase production when compared to Q4 2019 (pre-COVID-19 impacts) and to reduce costs. Moreover, we expect to continue to generate future growth by advancing several projects in our portfolio and adding more production during Q4 and the years to come.”
