After graduating from law school in Mexico, Mr. Rivero spent the next 25 years developing a thorough understanding of the processes necessary to successfully discover, acquire, and develop, mineral concessions with the potential of containing valuable mineral deposits. Considered by Orofino as an acquisitions specialist, Mr. Rivero has been involved in the development of various turn-key projects in mining, energy, fertilizer, oil and gas, and shipping sectors.

Mr. Rivero founded and directed Constructora y Perforadora Marina, S.A. de C.V., and Kaiser International, S.A. de C.V., Ultramar Bancorp Inc., Ultramar Capital Plc. and First Mercantile Bank Ltd.

Until recently, Mr. Rivero acted as the President and served as a Director of Oroco Resource Corp, a mining corporation trading on the TXS-V. During that time, Mr. Rivero was responsible for the successful acquisition of Oroco's mining properties in Mexico.

At Orofino, Mr. Rivero, a Spanish-speaking executive, will assist in overseeing the acquisition of new properties. In addition, Mr. Rivero will utilize his extensive international experience in development and selection of partners for the progression toward large-scale production. Mr. Rivero will play a key role in the development of the properties in Orofino's current Senderos de Oro gold camp in the mining area of central Sur de Bolivar, a project area comprised of more than 3000 hectares of mineral concessions in Colombia's highest producing artisanal mining region.
