SolGold falls despite copper find

SolGold has struck copper at its Cascabel project in Ecuador, the firm revealed yesterday, but its Aim-listed shares tanked more than 11 per cent to 6.85p in heavy trading. Managing director Alan Martin said that exploratory sites “full support our interpretation that the broader Alpapa region has potential to host a world-class porphyry copper-gold deposit”. SolGold holds a 50 per cent interest in the company hunting for copper at the site.
