TORONTO, Nov. 4, 2011 /CNW/ - Zaruma Resources Inc., (TSX-V: ZMR), (the
"Company" or "Zaruma") today announced that the Company will proceed
with the previously approved share consolidation and name change,
expected to be effective November 8, 2011. On the effective date, the
currently outstanding common shares of the Company will be consolidated
on the basis of one new common share for ten existing common shares,
and the Company's name will be changed to "Red Tiger Mining Inc." In
the event that the number of existing common shares held by a
shareholder is not evenly divisible by ten, the number of
post-consolidation common shares issued to such shareholder shall be
rounded up to the next whole number. Red Tiger will trade on the TSX
Venture Exchange as a Tier 1 Mining Company, under the stock symbol
The consolidation of the existing shares was approved by the
shareholders in July 2010 when the refinancing of the Company was
approved. A private placement of US$25 million and a debt financing of
US$30 million was completed on July 20, 2011 and as the number of
shares that could be outstanding if existing warrants were exercised
would exceed 1.1 billion, the Directors considered it appropriate to
effect the consolidation of shares at this time. The change of name to
"Red Tiger Mining Inc." will avoid confusion with the existing share
certificates and reflects a change from the exploration stage of
Zaruma's development to an operational mining company.
The development of the Company's Luz del Cobre Copper Project in the
State of Sonora, Mexico is on track to be in production by the second
quarter of 2012. Major contractors are on site to complete the SX-EW
plant, finish the heap leach pad, and complete the pipeline from pad to
plant. The designed capacity of the plant is 600 tonnes of copper
cathodes per month.
Zaruma Resources Inc. is currently listed on the TSX Venture Exchange,
(symbol ZMR) and the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, (symbol: ZMR). Common
shares outstanding: 652,320,285.
