About Rincon Resources

Rincon Resources is a Western Australian ("WA") focused gold and base metals exploration company. It currently holds the rights to three highly prospective projects in WA, the most significant of which, South Telfer, a 50,000-hectare project in the Paterson province, is approximately 12km south from Newcrest Limited's Telfer mine. The two others are highly prospective copper-gold projects - Laverton and Kiwirrkurra.


Peter Ruse, Gunsynd plc Director, commented: "Gunsynd is pleased to continue to add to its existing investment in Rincon Resources. Rincon has what we believe to be a very exciting portfolio of copper/gold projects - particularly the South Telfer project in the Paterson region of Western Australia. The Paterson region is establishing itself as one of the most highly sought-after Gold/copper regions in Australia. There has been past and present exploration success for existing ASX and AIM mining exploration companies, most recently Newcrest Mining (ASX: NCM) and Greatland Gold PLC (AIM: GGP) - Haverion Gold discovery. We believe Rincon will be in a position to unlock significant value via this upcoming IPO in the coming months."
