Tinka Resources management comments
“Tinka is thrilled to welcome Nexa as a strategic investor in the Company, joining Buenaventura and Sentient Equity Partners as our major shareholders.
“Nexa’s strategic investment in Tinka, and the co-investment by Buenaventura, is a strong endorsement of our globally significant Ayawilca zinc project and of Peru as an important long-term mining and investment jurisdiction.
“Nexa is a dominant player in the zinc business in Latin America, owning three mines and a smelting operation in central Peru in close proximity to Ayawilca.
“The Private Placement investment highlights the potential synergies of a successful mine development at Ayawilca for all parties concerned.
“We look forward to kicking-off our work programs at Ayawilca as soon as possible, including the commencement of a drill program which will target new high grade resources as well as increased measured and indicated resources.”
The President and CEO of Tinka Resources, Dr. Graham Carman.
“In line with our strategy and believing on the promising fundamentals for zinc and its important role in the green economy, we are pleased to announce the increase of our equity interest in Tinka.
“Nexa has a unique position in Peru and Brazil and we believe the Ayawilca zinc project provides us a further option to grow, complementing our portfolio and allowing Nexa to secure its relevant position in the zinc market, adding value to all our stakeholders.
“As we previously disclosed, Ayawilca is one of the largest zinc projects in development in Peru with excellent development potential as well as resource expansion.”
CEO of Nexa, Mr. Ignacio Rosado
