After recently signing a deal for a stakeBloomberg terminal at the Diablillos silver-gold project in Salta province, Central Puerto is determined to become involved in a second mining project, according to one person, who like others asked not to be named discussing private negotiations. The company monitors Los Azules and other gold and silver sites.
