Candente ‘Would Be Happy’ to Develop Canariaco, CEO Freeze Says

Candente Copper Corp. (DNT) “would be happy” to develop its Canariaco copper deposit in Peru if it doesn’t reach an agreement to sell the property, Chief Executive Officer Joanne Freeze said.

Vancouver-based Candente has signed confidentiality agreements with “at least” 10 prospective buyers, Freeze said today at the Bloomberg Mila conference in New York. A mining tax law being debated by Peru’s Congress this week “is quite reasonable,” Freeze said.
