MAG Issues Statement in Connection with Tragic Incident Involving Local Ejido Leader
MAG Silver Corp. was informed on Tuesday of the tragic death of Ismael Solorio Urrutia and his wife Manual Martha Solís Contreras who were gunned down on Monday, October 22 while driving on the highway outside of Ciudad Cuauhtémoc, Chihuahua. MAG has had a long-standing and collegial business relationship with Mr. Solorio going back to 2010, in his capacity as a representative for one of the local ranches on which MAG successfully negotiated drilling rights and as a member of the local Ejido Benito Juarez with which MAG has had ongoing negotiations over the years. The board and management of MAG wish to express their sincere condolences to the family and friends of Mr. Solorio and his wife. MAG also wishes to make clear that the vicious lies that have been circulating that MAG was somehow involved in these heinous acts are entirely false. MAG has had absolutely no involvement in this tragic event and sincerely hopes that those responsible will be swiftly brought to justice.
