Joe Chan was instrumental to the success of Plata’s completion of the transaction with Fresnillo pl in Mexico. His experience and expert knowledge of the TSXV approval requirements provided us very effective guidance in the application of the proposed transaction. Joe’s advice was always prompt and of excellent quality, from providing valuable comments on the translated Mexican agreement, to helping us with news releases, shareholder memorandums, etc. His guidance was so clear and effective that we “passed” all of TSXV’s requirements promptly. Joe is a great professional who cares about his clients! We greatly appreciate having had the opportunity to avail ourselves of his services.”Mike Clarke & Patricia Fong
