Vancouver, British Columbia, June 8th, 2018, Candente Copper Corp. (TSX:DNT, BVL:DNT) ("Candente” or the “Company”) was advised this morning that Anglo Pacific Group PLC has acquired the existing 0.5% Net Smelter Return Royalty (“NSR”) over the Cañariaco Copper Project from Entrée Resources Ltd.
“Given Anglo Pacific’s decision to purchase the NSR and their positive comments about the Cañariaco Copper Project and our Company in their News Release of today, we consider this a very positive validation of the project's attractiveness”, commented Joanne Freeze, President and CEO of Candente Copper Corp.
The Company agrees with Anglo Pacific's stated prediction that decreasing copper supplies will lead to a supply deficit based on industrial demand sources alone. Add to this an incremental copper demand, driven by green technology, creates conditions for an even tighter supply environment.
