Yamana Seeks Cohort For Exploration Work

From Staff And Wire Reports

Yamana Resources Inc. of Spokane said it is looking for a large company to form a joint-venture to help explore its properties in Chile.

The exploration company owns 10 mineral concessions on 445 square miles in northern Chile. Rothschild Canada Ltd. is helping Yamana seek a large partner.
