With that tail wind and a "possible" permit this yr or early next yr GQC could have a big score for investors buying the shares today.I do not suggest any one to buy GQC unless you think you understand it well.:https://www.elorientadorrd.com/2021/11/de-aprobarse-proyecto-minero-romero-san.html If Romero mining project is approved, San Juan would be one of the most prosperous provinces in the DR Freddy Medrano Mercedes November 10, 2021 SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic . - If the environmental studies that the Goldquest firm would carry out on the Romero mining project determine that it does not affect water or agriculture, San Juan would become one of the most prosperous and educated provinces in the country.
