VANCOUVER, B.C., June 26, 2013 – Huldra Silver Inc. (“Huldra” or the “Company“) announces that, as of June 25, 2013, it has commenced the process of putting its mine and mill on care and maintenance. The Company has suspended operations in order to minimize cash obligations. As announced in its June 24, 2013 news release, the Company had already temporarily suspended milling operations a few days prior to a planned maintenance procedure in order to install previously purchased rubber ball mill liners.
Mining operations were put into care and maintenance on June 25, 2013 due to market factors. The Company was currently mining Stopes 2 and 5, but, without additional liquidity, is unable to adequately fund both mining at Treasure Mountain and transportation to its processing mill. Huldra will continue to pursue financing options in order to recommence operations at both the mine and mill.
On behalf of the Board of Directors:
Ryan Sharp, MBA
President, CEO & Director
