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.

Key Takeaways:

  1. Prof Borg has not seen another belt worldwide in which porphyries provide an extra source of copper into already copper-fertile sedimentary basins.
  2. He sees significant potential for the belt, both from a national and international perspective.
