Bnamericas Published: Wednesday, March 16, 2016

Newfoundland-based Altius Minerals disclosed exploration plans at its copper-gold-silver projects in Chile.

Mapping and sampling programs have identified targets at the Arcas and Lia properties, gold veins at the Quiltro property and copper anomalies at the Timón and Pescado properties, part of 1,000km2 of exploration concessions, according to a statement. Altius is looking for JV partners for the properties even as it seeks to acquire more projects, it said.


Toronto's Continental Gold, which is developing the Buriticá gold-silver project in Antioquia, Colombia, said it appointed Mateo Restrepo as president.

Restrepo, vice president at Continental since August 2015 and who holds an MBA from Harvard, previously worked at Glencore's Colombian coal unit Prodeco and was a financial advisor to then president of Colombia Álvaro Uribe, the company said.


Vancouver-based Dynasty Metals & Mining, which is developing the Zaruma gold project in Ecuador, said it appointed Ruben Gellibert as interim CFO.

Gellibert, the company's corporate comptroller who replaces Nick Furber as CFO, is a chartered accountant who has worked at Dynasty since 2010, the company said in a statement.
