VANCOUVER, May 15, 2015 /CNW/ - Montan Mining Corp. (TSXv: MNY) (FSE: S5GM) (the "Company" or "Montan") is pleased to announce that its common shares are now listed and trading on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange (Xetra) under the symbol "S5GM." Montan anticipates that the listing will provide the Company with increased visibility for its activities in the European capital markets.
Mr. Ian Graham, CEO of Montan stated, "We anticipate that the new listing will increase the Company's visibility and enable greater shareholder participation from the European market. European resource investors currently have a strong focus on precious metals and an appreciation for well managed, cash-flow focused junior mining companies."
The ISIN number for Montan is CA61186P1027 and the German Security Code (WKN) is A14P4P.
Montan recently entered into a letter agreement with Goldsmith Resources SAC to acquire an operating gold processing plant (Mollehuaca) as well as an operating mine (Eladium) in southern Peru. The Mollehuaca Processing Plant was recently expanded and has both a carbon-in-pulp (CIP) circuit as well as a flotation circuit with a total capacity of approximately 150 tonnes per day (TPD). The operating circuits provide flexibility for processing of mixed metal feed stocks, a feature unique among processing plants in the region. The plant is located in the region of Arequipa, the most active region of Peru for small scale gold mining. The mill is currently operating with a start-up throughput of approximately 30 tpd. The Company plans to make application for commercial permits to incrementally increase capacity up to 350 tpd from the currently permitted 180 tpd when Montan assumes operatorship. Montan is led by a mining management team including Mr. Ian Graham – CEO (ex- Rio Tinto / Anglo American), Mr. Michel Robert – Director (former Senior Vice President of Pan American Silver) and Mr. Luis Zapata – Executive Chairman (former Head of Latin America Institutional Equity Sales at Canaccord Genuity and Peru-based).
