Angelique de Maison Increases Funding Commitment to Casablanca Mining


CASABLANCA MINING LTD. (OTCQB:CUAU) announced today that Angelique de Maison has agreed to invest an additional $4.2 million in the Company through the purchase of common stock.

Juan Carlos Camus, CEO of Casablanca Mining and its Chilean subsidiary, Santa Teresa Minerals, said, “Ms. de Maison's investment has been critical to Casablanca's Chilean mining and exploration operations, acquisitions, and construction projects, along with the protection of our electro-mining intellectual property. We believe this additional funding commitment will provide Casablanca with sufficient capital for the remainder of 2011.”

Ms. de Maison said, “Casablanca Mining and Santa Teresa Minerals have continued to demonstrate strict operational controls and efficient use of the capital I have provided. The opportunity in gold, copper and copper sulfate is a long term secular play that addresses two of the top issues in the world today; financial stability, through the ongoing value of precious metals, and food/farming, through the livestock feed opportunities associated with copper sulfate.”

As previously announced, below are highlights of recent progress Casablanca Mining has made with Ms. de Maison's investments in the second and third quarters of 2011:

  • 43-101 Technical Reports Completed For Casuto Project and Free Gold Project
  • Completed the Purchase of 70% Interest in “New Gold Project,” consisting of Los Pinos 1-30 and Teresita 1-20
  • Copper Sulfate Plant Construction Progresses On Time and Within Budget
  • New Road and 15 Hole Drilling Project Completed at Anica Copper Mine
  • Electro-Mining Patent Granted in China
