“This strategic investment by a mining company of Yamana's calibre is tangible proof that we are on the right track. I would like to thank them for their confidence and their future contribution to our Board of Directors,” said Jean-Marc Lacoste, President and CEO of Monarch. “The steps we have taken to advance our flagship Wasamac project continue to attract a great deal of interest from the mining and financial community and it is only a matter of time before we are fully appreciated. With this financing, our overall financial position now stands at more than CAN$25 million, which will allow us to move more quickly to develop Wasamac, Beaufor and McKenzie Break, gold projects at various stages of development that each have excellent upside potential.”
