Drilling at Tocantinzinho Extends Mineralization to Southeast and Delineates Core Area of +2 G/T Gold

    HOUSTON, April 16 /CNW/ - Brazauro Resources Corporation (TSX.V: BZO) is
pleased to announce the results of six of the twelve holes that have been
completed in the current drilling campaign at Brazauro's Tocantinzinho gold
project in Brazil. The objective of the ongoing program is to explore for the
southeasterly extensions of mineralization beyond the main gold resource area,
and to refine and better outline gold resources within the main zone. Complete
analytical results have been received for six of the twelve drill holes and
drilling is ongoing. Gaps within the resource area have been filled by two of
the new holes with exciting results.

    TOC 07-47, the first hole of the 2007 drilling campaign, intersected
271.5 meters of 1.1 g/t Au from a depth of 35.5 meters to 307.0 meters,
including 68 meters of 2.0 g/t gold. This hole was drilled from NE to SW at an
inclination of -75 degrees. A fence of angled holes, spaced 50 meters apart
and aimed in the opposite direction - from SW to NE, are being drilled at this
time to fill Cross-Section #4 of the resource area.

    TOC 07-48, drilled along Cross-Section #5, intersected 198.0 meters
grading 2.1 g/t Au from a depth of 86.0 meters to 284.0 meters. This hole
enhances and defines the core of +2 g/t Au within the Tocantinzinho gold

    TOC 07-52 was drilled below the southeasternmost hole of the resource
area to determine if gold mineralization extended below hole TOC 05-33. Two
mineralized intersections were encountered in this hole: the first, an
intercept of 78.5 meters (from 160.7 to 239.2 meters depth) averaged 0.7 g/t
Au, while a second intersection, (from 259.9 to 338.3 meters depth),
intersected 78.4 meters also grading 0.7 g/t Au. These results show clearly
that gold mineralization continues and is plunging to the southeast beyond the
previously encountered limits and additional drilling will be conducted in
that direction.

    Three holes, TOC 07-49 to TOC 07-51, probed the region around a solitary
gold-anomalous hole drilled in 2004 (TOC 07-20) about a half kilometer
distance to the southwest of the resource area. These holes failed to find
mineralization of consequence.

    A reinterpretation of data from the comprehensive airborne magnetic
survey flown in 2005 suggests that the main-trend gold mineralization may have
been fault-displaced to the east and southeast of the region drilled to date.
Geochemical sampling in this new area has been highly anomalous across a large
zone. Upon completion of the three holes currently being drilled along
Cross-Section #4, the core rig will be moved southeast to test this exciting
