ALBUQUERQUE (CN) – Minority shareholders of Mineral Energy and Technology Corp. (METCO) claim the company’s controlling officers and their attorneys are cheating them on a $130 million deal that would transfer METCO’s uranium mines to Monaro Mining, of Australia.
METCO formerly was known as Uranium King. The plaintiffs sue Uranium King Ltd., of Australia; METCO directors Michael Duncan, Sam Sapper, and Jim Malone;
Albuquerque attorneys Michael Comeau and Paul Fish; and Las Vegas, Nev., attorney Fred “Pete” Gibson III, who allegedly are conspiring to push through the Monaro merger with METCO assets.
