VANCOUVER, BC, Oct. 4, 2022 /CNW/ - MANTARO PRECIOUS METALS CORP. (TSXV: MNTR) (OTCQB: MSLVF) (FSE: 9TZ) (the "Company" or "Mantaro") announces that Craig Hairfield has resigned as Chief Executive Officer and director of the Company, effective immediately.
Dr. Chris Wilson, PhD., FAusIMM (CP), FSEG, Chairman of the Board and Chief Geologist states, "Myself and the board of directors are acutely aware of the extremely challenging market conditions over the last several months and the need to keep shareholders up to date with the corporate strategy and project news. When the previous CEO joined in early April 2022, the Company had cash of approximately C$4 million and traded at a share price of approximately C$0.18. As Chairman, I would like to re-assure shareholders that an experienced board of directors remains at the helm of Mantaro. With approximately C$1.2 million in cash, we have sufficient funds to meet our required expenditures at the Golden Hill Property and the Santas Gloria Property, and Mantaro will work with laser focus to reduce costs to maintain shareholder value. The Company is actively seeking a CEO who understands the value of the company's project portfolio, has demonstrated ability to successfully complete financings in the junior exploration space irrespective of market conditions, and is proactive and outward-looking with respect to shareholder engagement."
Dr. Wilson further comments, "All drill core samples from the Golden Hill Property are with ALS and Mantaro expects to release initial drill results very shortly and at regular intervals thereafter. Following release of Golden Hill assay results, the Company will provide a general update to shareholders, which will include a planned drill program at the high-grade silver-gold system within the 100% owned Santas Gloria Property in Peru, and a potential second drill program at the Company's Golden Hill Property in Boliva. Golden Hill is a fully permitted mining concession with historical production."
