Our operations began in 1998 as Oroandino Group in the city of Lima - Peru, in order to offer gold and silver refining services to jewelers and small miners in the country. By the year 2002, the first activated carbon desorption services were undertaken.

The development of the mining industry at a national level and the growing demand for our services, drives the establishment of the mineral analysis laboratory, as well as the metallurgical testing and research service. In 2008, the business group is renewed and adopts the name of AURICA, extending its operations to the south of the country with two new offices in Arequipa: one in the industrial area of Arequipa and another in the mining district of Chala, where MINERALAB is born.

A year later, in 2009, the business chain expands with the beginning of the commercialization of precious metals through a new company: METALAB, which currently supplies gold and silver to the local industry and the international market. In 2017, we grow into the metal-mechanical area, designing and manufacturing desorption plants and related equipment with turnkey delivery. Currently, thanks to the effort of the great human team that conforms it, as well as the trust and loyalty of our customers, GRUPO AURICA continues on the path of innovation, growth and diversification, with the honesty, security and confidentiality as always.
