The capital raising was strongly supported by Sandfire Resources NL (ASX:SFR), many existing shareholders, and a number of new supporters that have shown considerable interest in the merged entity and the maiden drill program planned to commence shortly at the Chuscal Gold Project.
Metminco executive chairman Kevin Wilson said: “We are pleased for the overwhelming support from the merger from Andes shareholders, and the strong support for the capital raising, and we look forward to getting on with drilling our key gold prospect at Chuscal, in the Department of Risaralda, Colombia as soon as possible.”
