The Tesoro Resources Limited (ASX: TSO) share price is soaring 9% higher today. At the time of writing, shares are up 8.7% to 12.5 cents, having earlier seen gains of 13%.

After rallying in early trade, shares in the mining company entered a trading halt before being reinstated.

Here’s why the company was in a trading halt and why investors are jumping on shares in Tesoro.

Tesoro share price reinstated after temporary pause

Earlier today, Tesoro notified investors that shares in the company would be temporarily paused. The company cited a further announcement as reasoning for the pause in trading.

Shares in Tesoro were shortly reinstated after the company retracted and replaced a previous presentation.

The company told investors unclassified material in the previous investor presentation was not in accordance with guidelines. As a result, Tesoro retracted the statements from the previous presentation and provided a replacement presentation.

The announcement follows the company’s managing director presenting a webinar on Tesoro’s El Zorro Gold Project earlier today.

Overview of Tesoro

Tesoro is a mining exploration and development company with projects in the Coastal Cordillera region in Chile. The region hosts multiple copper and gold mines, with much of the area remaining unexplored due to the nature of mining concession ownership in Chile.

Via its in-country network, Tesoro has secured the rights to scale gold projects in the region, with the company holding the rights to 85% of the El Zorro Gold Project.

The Tesoro share price has come under fire recently.

Despite rallying in today’s trading session, shares in Tesoro are more than 58% lower since the start of the year.

Shares in the mining exploration company suffered a blow yesterday, tumbling by more than 30%.
