Emerita is a Canadian mineral resources exploration company dedicated to the acquisition, exploration, research and development of prospective mining properties in the Iberian Pyrite Belt (Spain) with a focus on traditional base metals (zinc and copper) and precious metals (silver and gold).
The Latin word EMERITA means “deserving,” “worthy,” “entitled to” and “person of merit.” The company name is inspired by Emerita Augusta, one of the major cities of the Roman Empire in Spain, founded in 25 BC. Today, the city is known as Mérida, capital of Extremadura Region where Emerita's original gold properties were located. The representation of the arch in Emerita’s logo echoes the arch above the Temple of Diana in the ruins of the Roman forum in Mérida.
