Meanwhile, Ecuador’s Vice Minister of Mining José Serrano (I think that’s his title) put on the full trumpet display at PDAC yesterday afternoon and announced to a packed audience of 80 people that Ecuador was now officially a country free of legal bullshit for miners and that everybody could mine. Word is that Serrano has kept his job all this time because he’s the only one in the mining ministry that can speak English
So here’s Corriente’s PR last night on the issue (CTQ was so excited it couldn’t wait for this morning). Expect similar literature from the other Ecuador-exposed miners. By the way, they chose an 80-seat capacity room to make the announcement so as not to embarrass him.
UPDATE: Another regular reader sends in his PDAC ’09 photo. Thank you, other regular reader.
