Adam Travis President and CEO of Colorado states: ”We are very pleased to have the strong support of our existing shareholders and welcome new ones. Kinross increasing its shareholding is a strong vote of confidence in our technical team and our projects. The closing of this placement along with the funds we already had on hand have provided us a path to earning a controlling interest in the KSP Project. KSP is clearly one of B.C.’s best exploration projects centered in the heart of the Golden Triangle. We look forward to commencing drilling shortly on our Inel high grade gold target as soon as conditions allow.”
