TORONTO, ON – March 25, 2019 – INV Metals Inc. (“INV Metals” or the “Company”) (TSX:INV) provides an update on the 100% owned Loma Larga property, located in Ecuador.
The Company reports that it will relocate the proposed processing and tailings facilities outside of Girón canton. INV Metals will continue the engineering work required to locate the facilities in the same canton as our Mineral Resources and Reserves.
Ms. Candace MacGibbon, CEO, stated, “Loma Larga will continue to advance towards development. We thank our employees for their hard work, as well as the Ministry of Energy and Nonrenewable Resources and our local communities for their previous and ongoing support.”
The Company also reports that the result of the referendum held in Girón canton on March 24, 2019 was not in favour of mining activities in the canton. Girón canton is an adjacent jurisdiction which does not contain the Loma Larga Mineral Resources and Reserves. INV Metals will seek further legal clarification on the result and the potential implications.
