Interview with Merlin Marr-Johnson, Director of Salazar Resources (TSX-V:SRL)
Salazar Resources is an Ecuadorian exploration company. In our last interview, we discussed how this gold explorer had farmed out its first copper-zinc-gold asset, the El Domo Curipamba VMS discovery. The PEA shows an economically viable resource. The company is fully carried for 25% and receives US$250,000 in advance royalty payments (to a limit of US$1.5M), additional recurring management fees standing at over US$350,000pa, and was also given the ability to lease out their 3 drills. At the time, they had c.$5M in the bank to continue exploration and consideration of M&A options. Salazar Resources has 3 additional copper-gold assets at varying degrees of licencing. Adventus has a 75% option on project, obtained by funding CAPEX of US$25M over five years. Fully carried for 25%, and receiving annual cash payments. Interesting. A Feasibility Study will be completed in 2022 for El Domo Curipamba, and lots of metallurgical work has been carried out. The aim is for production in 2024, possibly late 2023.
