06:21 AM EDT, 09/19/2019 (MT Newswires) -- Iamgold (IAG), a Canada-based gold miner, would be a good addition to China Gold International Resource, an executive at China National Gold Group told Reuters at the sidelines of an investment conference.
Jerry Xie, an executive at China National Gold, told Reuters on Wednesday that his company is shopping for producing gold mines in Canada, Latin America, and Africa and thinks that Iamgold is a good fit. China Gold International Resource is the overseas arm of state-owned China National Gold.
Xie made his comments to Reuters at the Denver Gold Forum.
Reuters said neither Xie nor Iamgold CEO Stephen Letwin would provide any information on any specific deals.
