Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - July 21, 2021) - Solis Minerals Ltd. (TSXV: SLMN) ("Solis" or the "Company") is pleased to announce it has begun trading today under the symbol SLMN, as the successor to Westminster Resources Ltd. (old symbol WMR). There has been no change in capitalisation structure. Solis Minerals is a Latin-American focused copper company, exploring the Mostazal copper porphyry project in northern Chile, and the Ilo Norte copper IOCG project and Ilo Este copper porphyry projects in southern Peru.
Having recently closed a $2.7 million financing on May 12, 2021, Solis Minerals is well funded for its first field season in Chile and Peru. Mostazal represents a drill-ready, multi-kilometre porphyry target, with high-grade manto-style mineralisation near surface, tested by 60 historical drill holes. Ilo Norte has a 10-kilometre-long alteration system, only partially tested by historical drilling, including a 30-metre intercept grading 0.93% copper. Ilo Este is a large, eroded porphyry, with copper as well as gold, silver and molybdenum mineralisation mapped over a 3 square kilometre area.
Jason Cubitt, President and CEO of Solis Minerals noted "The re-naming of Westminster Resources to the new Solis Minerals is another milestone in our history. Copper has never been more in demand, from EVs to infrastructure, and Chile and Peru are already established as the top copper producers in the world. With a high-quality technical team, drill-ready targets, and a well-capitalized and structured company, I'm confident that Solis Minerals is an attractive vehicle for investors looking for exposure to the red-hot copper market."
