MGM Mineral Resources Provides Corporate Updateadmin
Tuesday, August 15th 2006
Metro Gold Mines Mineral Resources Inc., a growing gold mining company engaged in the acquisition and development of production properties in South and Central America, recently ended a week of corporate meetings in Medellin, Colombia.
“The week long meetings in Colombia were a complete success,” said Kenneth Lamb, President of MGM Mineral Resources. “What we initially believed would transpire over a day turned into a week of restructuring and reorganization of the Company, not only internally, but externally as well.”
The initial meeting with the Board of Directors outlined the tasks and vision for the Company, which was followed up by meetings with the local owners of the Company’s current mines. It was a pleasure to see that the Company’s Directors, land owners, and staff were able to focus on the same common goals and reach decisions that will greatly affect all aspects of the Company. The entire week consisted of additional meetings with owners of mines that are currently in production, as well as with members of Regional, Provincial, and Federal governments within Colombia, in order to facilitate acquisitions, mining permits, and future projects.
The Company was also able to retain the services of a lawyer with a background in international law, Mr. Luis Trujillo, as well as external accountants to handle the financial end of operations. It was also concluded that the Company is to centralize and update their offices in Medellin for all administrative duties.
“MGM Mineral Resources is pleased to announce its greatest accomplishment of all,” said Kenneth Lamb. “We were able to secure a minimum of six joint ventures and acquisitions, and are currently still negotiating further mines. We will be releasing the names of our new properties shortly, with specific information pertaining to the individual mine. The entire week, along with these acquisitions, represent a major step in establishing ourselves as a major gold mining company in Colombia.”
