Firma Acquires Fully Permitted Magistral Tailings Project

Mr. Francis Biscan Jr., President of Firma Holdings Corp., stated, “We feel very fortunate to have secured this opportunity. With a project that has been advanced to the degree of Magistral, being fully permitted, with all the metallurgical work completed by a reputable firm, such as Kappes Cassiday, it is a very rare find for our company. Additionally, because of the way we were able to restructure various elements of the project, we have created a project that can be very attractive to a JV Partner or a direct funder. We believe the mining sector is looking for low cost production over exploration and we would attribute that to the interest from multiple groups that are actively engaged in due diligence and the desire to make an offer to partner with us in the production of Magistral. The ability for a project to be in production within a 120 days of funding, adds to interest and motivation to drive an attractive deal.”
