Metminco to move on Miraflores finance

The early-morning mist swirls over Quinchia, a quiet mountain town in Risaralda, Colombia, near where Australia’s Metminco (AU:MNC) aims to build a gold mine at its Miraflores deposit. From Metminco’s camp above the town you can make out the city of Manizales perched on the mountain ridge across the Cauca valley to the east, while to the north is the sheer white mass of the long-dead volcanic heart of Batero mountain rising out of the greenery.

Exploration drilling at Miraflores in Colombia

Miraflores was one of the early highlights of Colombia's Mid-Cauca porphyry belt exploration, a project that ignited investor's imagination in 2010 when former operator Seafield Resources achieved the record for most shares traded on the TSXV in a single day after releasing a drill intercept of 449m grading 1.29g/t Au, including a 23.95m segment grading 9.18g/t Au. Seafield traded some 70 million shares that day.
