and as President and Chief Operating Officer of AMT (USA) Limited, with
operations in Arizona. Mr. Verma brings to Dumont considerable hands-on mining
engineering experience from a variety of operations, including the Alberta oil

emerging cross-over technologies from the oil&gas and oil-shale sectors to
apply to development of Dumont's Alberta polymetallic black shale properties.
