The Lost Cities-Cutucu project lies along-trend of a mineral belt that hosts a well-endowed mineral belt

Aurania Resources Ltd (CVE:ARU) (OTCQB:AUIAF) said that field work has commenced at its Lost Cities-Cutucu project in Ecuador after suspending work in light of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The company reported that its exploration teams have re-entered the field in designated areas to start a mapping and soil sampling program on priority targets.

Dr Keith Barron told shareholders that reopening procedures are continuing in Ecuador and only 50% of the firm’s exploration personnel are permitted on the field in the Cantons that are currently open.

"I would like to thank our staff for implementing a comprehensive back-to-work protocol, and for the close cooperation that there's been with the communities in the project area, the office of the Governor of Morona Santiago Province, and the Ministry of Health,” Barron said in a statement.

“Our aim is to get our full complement back into the field as soon as possible while protecting the health of the communities with which we work and our staff."

Social distancing remains in place as parts of Ecuador are still in the midst of the pandemic, Barron added, calling the situation “somewhat volatile.”

Aurania also said it had requested quotes from geophysical companies for a heliborne Mobile MT survey to identify sulphides related to porphyries and epithermal gold-silver systems, as well as resistive zones that may represent silica-enriched areas linked with epithermals.

The Lost Cities-Cutucu project lies along-trend of a mineral belt that hosts a well-endowed mineral belt that contains 26 million ounces of gold and almost 40 billion pounds of copper.
