Empire Mining has started trading today as Columbus Copper (CCU.V) to emphasize the company’s focus on its copper projects in Turkey and Serbia and to reduce overhead costs (although we don’t quite know how a name change can reduce overhead). Shareholders and holders of physical share certificates aren’t required to do anything, as the brokers should automatically apply the name change.
Columbus Copper has been drilling for a while now in Turkey, and we expect to see some assay results within the next few weeks.
CEO David Cliff will give a corporate presentation at the upcoming Vancouver Resource Investment Conference. He will be speaking at 12:10 PM at ‘workshop 3’. For more information, please visit cambridgehouse.com/VRIC
