Candente’s President & CEO given mining entrepreneur award

Candente Resource Corp’s President and CEO, Joanne Freeze, was awarded a Mining Entrepreneurs 2001-2006 Gold Medal and Honour Diploma in Peru for her outstanding work in mining development within the country. The award was granted by Intercade (Inter-American Institute of Training and Development – Mining Sector) and the UNP (National University of Piura, Peru) in memory of Dr. Andres Marsano Porras, a well known and highly respected Peruvian mining pioneer. The award is to recognize mining entrepreneurs who have contributed significantly to the progress of Peru through their hard work and risks in developing mining projects, which employ thousands and generate wealth for all.

Freeze commented, "It is a great honour to be recognized and awarded alongside with such influential and hard working Peruvians such as Alberto Benavides de la Quintana, Roque Benavides Ganoza (Compania de Minas Buenaventura), Jesus Arias Davila (Compania Minera San Ignacio de Morococha), Pedro Brescia Cafferata, Mario Brescia Cafferata (Grupo Brescia), Eduardo Hochschild Beeck (Mauricio Hochschild & Cia), Guido del Castillo Echegaray (Aruntani), amongst others. I consider this award to be not just for me but for the entire Candente team starting with Candente’s co-founder Fredy Huanqui and our Corporate Secretary Lola Montagne. We could not have accomplished what we have without the confidence, vision and extremely hard work of our entire team and support of our families and we believe we are only just getting started."

Intercade is a leading institution in training, coaching and consulting to generate value and support to human resources in the mining sector with operations in Peru, Argentina, Mexico, Chile and Bolivia and the National University of Piura in Peru.
