Callinan Mines Provides Corporate Update
VANCOUVER, Oct. 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Callinan Mines Limited (CAA-TSX.V) wishes to update its shareholders and prospective investors regarding its financial position, and its upcoming activities.
Presently, the company has a strong cash position and no debt. The company's income continues to be derived from its 6 2/3% net profits interest in the 777 Mine in Flin Flon, Manitoba. The company is sufficiently capitalized to conduct continuing exploration programs, and to continue its ongoing litigation against HudBay Minerals Inc.
"Our intention for the coming months is to preserve capital," President Mike Muzylowski explained. "The volatile metals and capital markets are making exploration an even more uncertain proposition than it usually is, so the focus will be on the most inexpensive and high-potential properties. By virtue of our cash position and our income, we will survive these difficult economic times and continue to prosper."
On behalf of the Board of Directors, Mike Muzylowski Chairman and CEO The TSX Venture Exchange has not reviewed or approved and does not accept responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this News Announcement.
