AM Resources confirms the acquisition of the Esperanza asphaltite property
- The Corporation can now continue to develop its asphaltite projects.
- The Corporation could benefit from strong demand for asphaltite generated by Colombia's 4G program and from companies overseas.
- The Corporation has received positive feedback from potential customers in the United Kingdom, India and China regarding the sale of its asphaltite.
- An open-pit mining permit has already been issued for the Esperanza property.
MONTREAL, April 17, 2019 - AM Resources Corp. (“AM” or the “Corporation”) (TSXV: AMR) (Frankfurt: 76A) is pleased to announce that it obtained the approval of its shareholders at the annual general and special meeting of shareholders held on April 12, 2019, in Montreal, to acquire a 60% interest in the company that owns the mineral rights for the Esperanza property and thus ensure that AM holds the mineral claims. The acquisition is subject to the final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
AM’s move into asphaltite with the Esperanza and Rio Negro properties is driven by Colombia's 4G program, involving the construction of more than 4,400 miles of new roads, 141 tunnels and 1,300 viaducts, as well as strong international demand.
“Our goal is to become a preferred asphaltite supplier for construction companies selected under the 4G program, as well as for international companies,” said Dominic Voyer, President and Chief Executive Officer of AM. “In January 2019, we shipped three containers of asphaltite to potential customers in the United Kingdom, India and China for marketing trials. We recently received positive feedback from those customers confirming the high quality of our asphaltite and their interest in our product. The next step is therefore to develop our asphaltite projects. It is important to note that there is already an open-pit mining permit for the Esperanza property.”
