About Coro Mining Corp.:

Coro’s strategy is to grow a mining business through the discovery, development and operation projects at any stage of development, which are well located with respect to infrastructure and water, have low permitting risk, and have the potential to achieve a short and cost effective timeline to production. The Company’s preference is for open pit heap leach copper projects, where minimizing capital investment and creating profitability are priorities and, where the likely capital cost is financeable relative to the Company’s market capitalization. The Company’s assets include the Marimaca development project; its 65% interest in the SCM Berta company, which owns the Berta mine, Nora plant and the El Jote project as well as the Llancahue prospect.
