Ross Beaty buys a 14.9% stake in Galantas Gold

Galantas Gold {AIM and TSX.V: GAL} today made a shock announcement that Ross Beaty, had purchased a significant stake in the company.

Beaty has created significant shareholder value in the past and is currently the CEO of Pan American Silver, based in Canada.  Beaty is a major player in the Canadian mining scene.


If ever an announcement was an endorsement of the potential of a mining company and project, this one is!

Ross Beaty is a major player in the Canadian mining sector, and for him to have taken such a large position in Galantas, a minnow in mining terms, is hugely positive for GAL, the best possible endorsement they could ever receive.

This is massive for GAL, and credit must go to long term CEO Roland Phelps.
