A Message from Ivan Bebek, President, CEO & Director:
“We elected to make Sombrero a public company prior to listing on a Canadian stock exchange, which we are working toward finalizing this year and we will provide more specific timing once we have it.”
“The Company has over C$6 million in its treasury and we are proceeding to achieve the necessary surface access agreements with the communities near to Sombrero. We are pleased with the long-term relationships we have been able to form with the local communities and believe that once access is obtained both sides will benefit considerably from the increased economic activity that would be associated with our exploration work.”
