Aurania Resources Ltd (CVE:ARU) (OTCQB:AUIAF) has said it is preparing to restart field exploration at its Lost Cities-Cutucu project in Ecuador by June 10.

The explorer noted that it has a team back in the mineral explorer’s field office in Macas ready to recommence its exploration program after suspending work in light of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Toronto-based Aurania is getting ready to return to the field after using the mandated work stoppage to analyze LiDAR survey data from seven priority target areas on the expansive property.

In addition, Aurania has kept up its work with local communities around the project, including translating and disseminating coronavirus-related information into the local Shuar language and delivering 18 tonnes of dried food to over 2,000 nearby families.

On the environmental front, the company received ISO14001 accreditation for the environmental aspects of its exploration program.

In a statement, Aurania called the accreditation “unusual” for an exploration company and a sign of “recognition, by an unrelated third party, for the care with which the company is striving to minimize its environmental footprint and to engender improved environmental practices in the communities with which it works.”

The firm paid the Ecuadorian government around US$2.1 million to renew its 42 mineral concessions that make up the Lost Cities-Cutucu project.

Aurania recently announced it had applied for 419 mineral concessions covering 413,200 hectares in northern Peru, a new tract of land that could include a possible extension of the mineral belt that houses the Lost Cities-Cutucu project.
