Arturo Préstamo, President and CEO of Santacruz, commented:

“The Veta Grande and Minillas properties together with our Zacatecas properties represent one of the largest and most historically important land packages within the Zacatecas mining region, and we are very pleased to have this agreement in place which gives us the opportunity to consolidate our mineral interests in the area.
This is another important step in our plan to expand our Zacatecas operations into a larger district play, and we look forward to its continued development as part of Santacruz’s transition into a mid-tier Mexican silver producer.”
