    He paid a total consideration of $16,326 for the shares, or a $0.065 each, bringing his total shareholding up to 8,635,000 shares held both directly and indirectly.

    It also includes a conceptual Exploration Target of 302 million to 347 million tonnes at 4.4% to 5.0% zinc and lead, for a combined total potential of up to 36 billion pounds of metal at a 2% zinc cut-off.

    It has attracted major investors that include GlencoreXstrata, the world's largest zinc miner and trader, and Nyrstar which is the world's largest zinc and lead smelter group.

    China Nonferrous, which is ranked as one of the world's top engineering firms has executed a Memorandum of Understanding to build and majority fund the process plant.
