Now that Mantaro Silver is funded up ($5.3m raised last week, another $2m on top in the NR today), the team can take its lead from the single worst and dirtiest Peruvian mining executive on how to operate in the country. After all, this proto pumpjob with P.T. Barnum PhD leading the payola racket decided to hire the universally blackballed Luis Saenz as a director (and for why, Google his name and the word “Quiruvilca”). Mantaro CEO Chris Wilson may be a Doctor, but he’s still going to get laughed at behind his back if he ever shows up in his country of operations. At least by showing us the Amateur Hour antics from day one, they save us the bother of ever taking this company seriously.
