Inca Minerals Limited (ASX: ICG)
Junior resource company, Inca Minerals Limited (ASX: ICG) has been making progress in the development of Riqueza Project, which is located within a part of Peru’s mineral belt. On 4th July 2019, the company announced that it has assay results for 22 rockchip channel samples collected during a brief reconnaissance program that was conducted at Riqueza.
