This experiment, designed to illustrate the simplicity of copper extraction from sedimentary-hosted mineralization, was recorded at Aurania’s Ecuadorean field office during a visit from Ecuador’s Vice-Minister of Mines, Fernando L. Benalcazar. Aurania’s President Dr. Richard Spencer shows how to go from field rocks to pure copper in a matter of minutes. Ingredients: crushed, copper-bearing sedimentary rock, a bit of sulphuric acid, a couple of nails attached to a flashlight battery with electrical wire and voila, copper extraction pure and simple.
The following was recorded at Aurania’s Ecuadorean field office during a concurrent visit from Ecuador’s Vice-Minister of Mines, Fernando L. Benalcazar and Prof. Gregor Borg, one of the top sedimentary copper experts in the world. The discussion centres on the Vice-Minister’s interest in Aurania’s recent copper discovery from a governmental perspective, and Prof. Borg’s professional, independent opinion on the significance of the company’s copper findings.
Aurania’s field teams discovered vestiges of a road while searching for Sevilla de Oro which was one of two gold mining centres described in historic manuscripts from Ecuador, Peru, Spain and the Vatican. These records describe the Colonial Spanish operating the two gold mines between approximately 1565 and 1606. The road discovered by Aurania’s exploration teams is believed to be the one that linked Sevilla de Oro to the other gold mining centre ‘Logroño de los Caballeros’ as described in the historic manuscripts.
Management sees geological vectors pointing to a deeper gold target.
Management discusses the role of methane in the depth at which gold accumulates in epithermal systems.
