PERU – Joanne Freeze, president and CEO of Vancouver-based CANDENTE RESOURCE CORP., has been awarded a Mining Entrepreneurs 2001-2006 Gold Medal and Honour Diploma for her outstanding work in mining development in Peru.
The award was granted by INTERCADE (Inter-American Institute of Training and Development, Mining Sector) and the UNP (National University of Piura, Peru) in memory of Dr. Andres Marsano Porras, a well known and highly respected Peruvian mining pioneer. The award is to recognize mining entrepreneurs who have contributed significantly to the progress of Peru through their hard work and risks in developing mining projects, which employ thousands and generate wealth for all.
Candente has nine copper, gold and zinc projects in Peru. The most advanced is the Caariaco copper-gold property in the northern part of the country. An updated technical report and preliminary economic assessment of that project were posted at www.Candente.com on April 26, 2007.
