ARU Call Key Takeaways: Good Targets & Steady Newsflow

Download Report  

Red Cloud Klondike Strike Inc. and Aurania Resources Ltd. (TSXV:ARU) hosted a conference call for investors to provide an update on its ongoing exploration program on its 100%-owned Lost Cities – Cutucu Project in southeastern Ecuador. The audio from the call can be found here. In our view there are three main takeaways from the call: 1) Latorre is similar to Fruta del Norte, 2) Awacha has Cascabel type potential and 3) Steady newsflow is on the horizon. As well, we also recently completed a Red Cloud TV spot with Aurania’s senior management, explaining epithermal targets.  read more

Initial ARU Geophysical Data Defines First Target

Download Report  

Aurania Resources Ltd. (TSXV:ARU) reported geophysical data from its first of multiple targets, the Awacha target, at its Lost Cities – Cutucu Project, which bears similar features to known porphyry deposits in the adjacent Cordillera del Condor. Geophysical results coincide with satellite imagery completed prior to the survey, and have identified possible porphyries. The company noted results are also comparable to SolGold PLC’s copper-gold porphyry system in northern Ecuador. The final report on the geophysical survey is expected to be completed mid-December, with news to follow. In addition, results from the stream sediment sampling will be announced as it becomes available. Results from recent exploration will be used to define targets for initial scout-drilling in mid-2018. Next catalysts include the results from ongoing exploration, which should provide further clarity on priority targets. read more

ARU Completes Geophysics; Preliminary Data Encouraging

Download Report  

Aurania Resources Ltd. (TSXV:ARU) has announced the completion of its initial airborne geophysical survey over the company’s large ~2,080 km2 Lost Cities - Cutucu Project in southeastern Ecuador. Aurania was able to complete its airborne magnetic and radiometric surveys on budget, the data from which is now being analyzed. Initial results suggest that the Cutucu Project has a granitic core (previously unknown), similar to the adjacent Cordillera del Condor. In the Condillera del Condor the Zamora Batholith (granitic rocks) has been genetically linked to the formation of large gold, silver and copper deposits in southeastern Ecuador. While it remains early days, we view this preliminary result as encouraging. We note the geophysics is likely to primarily identify porphyry type targets versus epithermal gold-silver targets, which are likely to be identified through a combination of geophysics, satellite imagery and follow-up surface work. The company plans on providing the market with information on the targets identified through the geophysics, and is expecting to following up these new targets with surface work.  read more

Aurania to Acquire Lost Cities, a Historic Gold Prospect

Download Report  

Aurania Resources Ltd. (TSXV:ARU) announced it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire EcuaSolidus S.A., a private company that owns the ~2,080 km2 Lost Cities – Cutucu project in Ecuador. Consideration for the proposed transaction is C$500,000 and 1.0 million Aurania shares. Lost Cities is potentially the first project where professional historical archival research is coupled with modern exploration techniques. Findings from archives suggest the project area might host two major 16th and 17th century gold mines. The project is based at the foothills of the Andes, covering the core of a mountain range adjacent to that which hosts Lundin Mining Corp’s (TSX:LUN) 7M oz Au Fruta del Norte deposit. It was the team of Dr. Keith Barron, who currently is the President and CEO of Aurania, that discovered Fruta del Norte in 2006. Dr. Barron aims to apply the same exploration strategy this time, which might potentially lead to the expedited identification of drill targets. Dr. Barron is giving a special presentation on the Lost Cities and the process of finding them at our Pre-PDAC Conference tomorrow.  read more
