Golden Hill gold project : Mantaro Silver acquires initial 51% stake in MGH


Mantaro Silver Corp. said that it has exercised its option of acquiring a 51% stake in Minera Golden Hill (MGH), the owner of the Golden Hill gold project in Bolivia.

In August 2021, the Canadian mineral exploration company signed a property option agreement with Minera Golden Hill to acquire a stake of up to 80% in the advanced gold property situated in the underexplored, orogenic Bolivian Shied.

For acquiring an initial 51% stake in Minera Golden Hill, Mantaro Silver Corp. issued two million common shares and a million share purchase warrants along with cash payments of $500,000, while spending a minimum of $250,000 in exploration at the Golden Hill gold project in Bolivia during 2021.
