With the addition of these two highly skilled exploration geologists, the board undeniably has a depth of technical experience which will enable it to enhance its decision making and strategic planning. Furthermore, their in-depth knowledge of the regions in which we hold acreage as well as their insight into the progression of exploration projects will no doubt prove invaluable to our technical and commercial teams as we seek to deliver the company's goals."
