Apoquindo Minerals lists on Lima exchange

Vancouverite Apoquindo Minerals (TSX-V: AQM) has started trading on Peru's Lima stock exchange under symbol AQM, the company reported in a statement.
Apoquindo is one of several foreign juniors that have listed on Lima's bourse in recent years as a complement to their initial listings, typically in Toronto or London.

The company is optioning the Pachagón porphyry copper project in Peru's La Libertad region from ASC Peru, a subsidiary of US-based Apex Silver (Amex: SIL).

However, Apoquindo is not focused strictly on exploration and plans to bring into production a roughly 25,000t/y copper mine of the same name in Chile within the coming years.

The company is planning to release a resource update on the project this month following which it will embark on a road show to raise funds.
