In this video episode, we follow the conquistador trail from the town of Riobamba to the town of Macas in southeastern Ecuador, as described in the historical documents found in the Vatican Library. The present day town of Macas is on the edge of Aurania’s Lost Cities – Cutucu project concession area.
In early 2018, Aurania Resources was approached by VICE News to film a short news segment focusing on gold exploration in Ecuador. VICE News sent their top team down to Ecuador in March to spend ten days in the field with Aurania’s management and exploration teams to capture the real story behind the search for The Lost Cities. The segment aired on HBO in mid-April 2018 and was posted to news.vice.com along with two bonus videos.
Aurania reports that reconnaissance exploration crews have found silica blocks indicative of an entirely new epithermal system, the “Charip” target, some 50 kilometres (30 miles) north of the Latorre area in its Lost Cities – Cutucu Project (the “Project”) in southeastern Ecuador. In addition, the Company has received soil geochemistry results that refine the Crunchy Hill target and move it a step closer to drill-testing.
Aurania reports that the video documentary program from VICE News Tonight about Aurania’s Lost Cities – Cutucu Project is now available online via the following link: https://news.vice.com/en_us/article/d35kmj/meet-the-real-life-indiana-jones-hunting-for-gold-in-the-amazon . VICE News Tonight released an article entitled “Meet the real-life Indiana Jones hunting for gold in the Amazon” along with the video clip from their program which aired last week on the Home Box Office (“HBO”) channel. The program follows Aurania’s Chairman and CEO, Dr. Keith Barron and team through challenging conditions in the jungles and streams in their exploration of the Lost Cities – Cutucu project in southeastern Ecuador. See bonus footage of interviews with Aurania’s ‘reconnaissance exploration geologists’.
