Copper Extraction Experiment

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 Opportunity – A Copper Expert’s Opinion

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.
