AuRista's Philosophy

Our team’s philosophy revolves around three fundamental elements which provide a unique opportunity for investors. These elements consist of an innovative capital structure, our asset evaluation criteria, and our exploration program execution.

The AuRista Property

Urban Barry

Prime Location

AuRista Exploration Corp.'s flagship Urban Barry Property is located approximately 120km east of the Quebec town of Lebel-sur Quévillon which is approximately 650km north of Montreal and 260km northeast of Val-d’Or.

Year Round Access

Due to the location of the Urban Barry property and its proximity to neighbouring deposits, internal roads are accessible year round. Hosting the only efficient crossing point of the Saint Cyr river, within 80km makes the Urban Barry a high traffic area, keeping these roads constantly maintained.
