The Gramalote deposit appears to be much larger than the 2012 resource number. I started going through Anglo's Environment Impacy study they did this year and they say the deposit is 5 million ounces and possibly as much as 7 million

The plan indicates production would be between 350,000 to 450,000 ounces of Gold per year and a similar amount of Silver

At first glance I said the news appeared negative however after some further diligence the news may be favourable for Zonte. We will have to wait and see in time.

I have been in and out of this stock over the last 5 years and I currently hold some stock at this time.
At first glance, the news that came out appeared to be negative as Zonte were denied a permit. I understand there is some discrepancies with the decision and It may favour Zonte in the end but I proceed cautiously and somewhat optimistic. There seems to be some politics involved as decisions were made that seem to conflict with rules and mining laws. I assume the lawyers will be arguing their side of things.
I am hoping for a good outcome and will be watching.
On another note the last couple days were somewhat exciting for the stock as more shares traded in those days than any days the last couple years. to keep it in perspective only 4% of the shares of Zonte were traded in that time basically 1 million of 25 million. Not a lot, and we are only talking about $45000 dollars worth.
There may be a lot of people holding onto their shares and that's good, but at the same time there wasn't a lot of buyers either.
Hopefully Zonte becomes more popular and mining in a whole becomes more favourable.
looking forward to more news and updates on this development and other permit applications they have in the region.

I think trading and volume will be different now. The company has been in a blackout period for over a year as they could not say anything or promote the stock while these events were going on behind the scenes. Now it is starting to come out and I would bet we will learn some more details in the weeks and months ahead. There is still their other applications to come that are probably not so politically sensitive

WOW this is huge. I think this is the key paragraph in the news


In the department of Antioquia, Colombia, where the application was made, the Secretary of Mines processes applications and issues titles. The company's partner, which made the application, received a review of the application from Secretary of Mines stating the application was being denied for various reasons including: (i) its determination that the area is too small to become a mine; and (ii) the application would interfere with a large mining operation. Colombian Mining Code 685 of 2001 does not specify a minimal size for titles, nor does the mining code make any reference to interfering with mining operations. In fact, according to the company's Colombian legal counsel, the mining code is clear, in that it is a first-in-time system for open areas with no minimum size and a maximum size of 10,000 hectares. An open area is considered an area that is available for application, is not covered by a title or another previously applied for application and is not located in a sensitive area. The application for open areas over the Gramalote deposit and surrounding areas cover a total of just less than 30 hectares. This compares to a recently issued title in Colombia that covered less than 0.1 hectare.


Obvious they just making excuses because the other party (Anglo) does not want to see ZON get those claims

Great news, now we know why it took so long - I am sure the mining department was hoping this went away. I wonder how long before AngloGold and B2 Gold issue news on this?

ZONTE METALS ENGAGES LEGAL COUNSEL TO PURSUE APPLICATION OVER THE GRAMALOTE TARGET, COLOMBIA

As announced in a press release dated March 26, 2014, Zonte Metals Inc., in collaboration with several Colombian partners, made applications for mineral titles in Colombia. One of the applications was made over open ground sitting over the Gramalote deposit which is a joint venture between AngloGold Ashanti and B2Gold. This application was subject to review by the Secretaria de Minas (Secretary of Mines), department of Antioquia, Colombia, which has acknowledged the area under application has open ground, but notified the company's partner that it is denying the application. Zonte and its partner have now engaged legal counsel to challenge this decision. Legal counsel has advised the company that it is of the opinion the application was not processed in accordance with the Colombian Mining Code.

The Gramalote deposit is reported to contain 2,535,000 ounces of gold in the total measured and indicated categories grading 0.81 grans per tonne gold at a cut-off of 0.25 g/t Au (source B2Gold's National Instrument 43-101 technical report dated June 8, 2012). The application in question was made over open ground between titles sitting on top of the Gramalote deposit and surrounding areas. A map of the application area illustrating the open areas applied for can be found on Zonte's website. Multiple open areas were identified and included in the application, including one continuous area of approximately 17.8 hectares in the Gramalote deposit area. Within the deposit area, a continuous open area sitting over the deposit and between titles measures 21 metres in width and nearly 600 metres in length, and an additional area measures 13 metres in width and nearly 400 metres in length. These areas are also continuous with another open area just east of the Gramalote deposit which measures 58 metres in width and over 500 metres in length.

The company's agreement with its partner provides that its partner will receive common shares of Zonte in consideration for its assistance in making the applications for and on behalf of Zonte. Pursuant to the agreement, Zonte's partner will not retain any direct interest in the titles.

In the department of Antioquia, Colombia, where the application was made, the Secretary of Mines processes applications and issues titles. The company's partner, which made the application, received a review of the application from Secretary of Mines stating the application was being denied for various reasons including: (i) its determination that the area is too small to become a mine; and (ii) the application would interfere with a large mining operation. Colombian Mining Code 685 of 2001 does not specify a minimal size for titles, nor does the mining code make any reference to interfering with mining operations. In fact, according to the company's Colombian legal counsel, the mining code is clear, in that it is a first-in-time system for open areas with no minimum size and a maximum size of 10,000 hectares. An open area is considered an area that is available for application, is not covered by a title or another previously applied for application and is not located in a sensitive area. The application for open areas over the Gramalote deposit and surrounding areas cover a total of just less than 30 hectares. This compares to a recently issued title in Colombia that covered less than 0.1 hectare.

After initially being rejected, Zonte's partner petitioned the Secretary of Mines on a number of occasions to have the application processed in accordance with the mining code. Although these petitions are required to be answered within a specific time frame, they typically went unanswered, or were answered months after the deadline. These petitions were prepared by a legal adviser of the company's partner, who has extensive experience with the mining code and who is of the opinion that the application was not processed in accordance with the mining code. In August, the company's partner presented a tutela request to the first-level court. This tutela is a court order for which the Secretary of Mines must respond in a required amount of time to the issue presented in the tutela, which in this case was to have the application processed by the Secretary of Mines. The tutela was issued by the court in August, 2015, and had a deadline of early October, 2015. On Oct. 5, 2015, the Secretary of Mines presented a petition in the second-level court of Medellin requesting more time to process the application. This request was rejected by the higher court, which ordered that the application had to be processed in 10 days.

In light of the above, the company's partner submitted what's known as a descato request to the second level court. The descato request effectively requires the Secretary of Mines to respond and process the application in a manner of days. The court agreed and issued a descato order and on Oct, 20, 2015, the Secretary of Mines responded to the order, in which it continued to deny issuing the title for a number of reasons, including those mentioned above. The company notes that both the tutela and descato court orders are an official request to respond in a specific time. The court orders do not have the authority to demand the application be processed in accordance with the mining code.

Zonte's partner responded to the Secretary of Mines' latest response of the application review on Nov. 4, 2015, indicating it does not agree with the review, and is of the opinion, as does its legal counsel, that the review has not followed the Colombian Mining Code. Until now Zonte's partner and its legal counsel have led the efforts to have the application processed in accordance with the mining code. From here on, Zonte, along with its partner, will jointly, with their legal representation, proceed in this effort. Legal counsel are reviewing all documentation and preparing to proceed through necessary channels to have the issue resolved. Zonte will provide updates of the progress as developments materialize.

news out today< FINALLY. now I guess I know why it was taking so long. they got rejected. Maybe I see a bright light, the new release mentioned they have partner's B2G and AngloGold Ashanti (not to shabby)
Funny, that the stock was halted. don't they know this stock has no buyers or sellers.
with those partners, I believe if this permit was granted will would be over pre split share price.
