Akiba Leisman, Executive Chairman and Interim CEO of Marlin states that "we are excited to have completed the purchase of an extraordinary exploration asset in one of the world's most prolific silver mining districts. To have bought this project at an attractive price is a testament to Marlin's ability to grow on an accretive basis."
