Business Television Spotlight
Exciting Results at The Lost Cities Project in Ecuador
In January 2019 Business Television (BTV) aired a spotlight on Aurania Resources featuring CEO Dr. Keith Barron and President Dr. Richard Spencer.
“Aurania is a mineral exploration company focused on gold and copper, specifically in Ecuador. An area that has never been explored since the Spanish times 400 years ago and we’ve seen incredibly exciting results.” – Richard Spencer, President of Aurania Resources Ltd.
Aurania is a junior mineral exploration company engaged in the identification, evaluation, acquisition and exploration of mineral property interests, with a focus on precious metals and copper. Its flagship asset, The Lost Cities – Cutucu Project, is located in the Jurassic Metallogenic Belt in the eastern foothills of the Andes mountain range of southeastern Ecuador.
The Lost Cities Project is not a treasure hunt. Those sorts of stories usually begin with some wild-eyed prospector, a fragment of an old map, and an overheard conversation in a bar. Such things are the stuff of Hollywood and potboiler novels. The protagonists in this case are a credentialed and respected university Professor and two PhD geologists with world class discoveries in Ecuador already under their belts. Nothing swashbuckling about us! This is a carefully designed and considered exploration project more than a dozen years in the making. It is perhaps the only project that has ever brought together professional historical archival research with modern geological, geochemical and geophysical exploration techniques in a geographical area of high discovery potential.
