Latin American Minerals (TSXV:LAT) CEO Miles Rideout spoke to Resource Investing News about its Paso Yobai property in Paraguay. “In 2013,” Mr. Rideout says, “we’ve expanded our pilot production by going into 24 hour shifts, and we completed metallurgical testing to take the project into heap-leach processing.” In 2014, the Company aims to double its production output.

Latin American Minerals Inc. is a mineral exploration company with its flagship Paso Yobai property located in eastern Paraguay, an emerging gold region. Paso Yobai hosts a large epithermal gold footprint on two parallel gold trends, namely the 10 km Discovery Trend and 14.8 km X-Mile Trend.
