Elemetal Cooperating In South American Gold Imports Probe

MIAMI, March 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Information became publicly available yesterday that Juan Granda, a former employee of NTR Metals Miami, has been charged in the Southern District of Florida with money laundering in connection with an investigation being conducted by the United States Attorney's Office and several federal law enforcement agencies involving gold imported from various South American countries, in some instances through the Caribbean.

Elemetal has been cooperating, and will continue to cooperate, with the government's investigation.  Elemetal last year directed NTR Metals Miami (an indirect subsidiary of Elemetal) to suspend its operations in the relevant South American countries while the investigation was being conducted, and Elemetal has now formally closed the operations of NTR Metals Miami.
