(PresseBox) - Aurania Resources Ltd. (TSXV: ARU) (OTCQB: AUIAF) (Frankfurt: 20Q) (?Aurania? or the ?Company? - is pleased to report that VeriDaaS Corp. of Denver, Colorado, USA, which has been contracted to complete a LiDAR (?Light Distance And Ranging?) survey over the Company?s 208,000 hectare flagship Lost Cities-Cutucu Project area (?the Project?), has received the permits required to commence the survey.

Aurania?s Chairman and CEO, Dr. Keith Barron commented, ?We?re delighted to report that the permit for the survey has been issued and we?re extremely grateful to the authorities in Ecuador for their prompt attention to this matter.?

LiDAR survey

The rationale for undertaking the survey is as follows:

To detect vestiges of infrastructure that point to the location of the two ?Lost Cities? of Logro

To detect quartz veins and alteration in epithermal gold-silver systems that could be rapidly advanced towards scout drilling; and

To show the extent of the sedimentary layers in which sediment-hosted copper and silver has been discovered.

Dr. Barron continued, ?The LiDAR survey should detect old roads, rock dumps, trenches, pits and water canals that were constructed by the Spaniards in the age of the Conquistadors.

The gold mines of Logro

The third area in which the LiDAR data is expected to be extremely useful is for the sedimentary-hosted copper-silver discovered in the Project area (see press release May 17, 2019).assist the exploration teams in determining the continuity of copper-silver mineralization.

Application of LiDAR technology in jungle-covered areas

LiDAR has been revolutionary in discovery of a Mayan city beneath the jungles of Honduras (memorialized in the book ?the Lost City of the Monkey God?), and Mahendraparvata, a 1,200-year-old lost city in Cambodia found by Sydney University in 2013,

Recently, to the north and west of the Company?s Project area, in the valley of the Upano River, a LiDAR survey found evidence of roads, building platforms, and burial mounds that may be from a culture as old as 500 BC
