Dominique Delorme, President and CEO of La Mancha, noted: "Having quadrupled our resource base to nearly 5 million ounces of gold equivalent since 2007, it is exciting to see that this appears to only be the beginning, as we are just starting to scratch the potential at our Hassaï property, where nine more VMS targets remain to be explored."
