Franklin Mining CEO Signs Contract for Development of Puqio Norte Mine
In this situation, it is perhaps important for investors to figure out if the falls in the stock could in fact be an opportunity or not. On Thursday it emerged that the Chief Executive Officer of Franklin Mining, William Petty had gone back to Bolivia for overseeing the development of a number of gold mines in the country. It should be noted that Petty and the company’s Vice Presidents of Operations in Bolivia Fernando Freudenthal inked a letter of intent with Bolivia Progressa Coopertiva.
In this context, investors need to keep in mind that the letter of intent is going to allow Franklin Mining to work on developing the Puqio Norte mine. That mine in question has an excellent history as far as production is concerned and it has been suggested that it contains materials to the tune of 10 million tons. Although the news resulted in a steep fall in the Franklin Mining stock price, it might be a good idea to keep an eye on it and see if the stock can make a recovery.
