WINDSOR, NS, Nov. 15, 2011 /CNW/ - Buchans Minerals Corporation (TSXV: BMC) ("Buchans Minerals") or the "Company" is pleased to announce the appointment of Donald S. MacLeod to the Board of Directors of the Company.

Mr. MacLeod has a distinguished career within the mining industry and the Board of Directors feel that his management, metallurgical and strategic experience in developing large scale projects within both senior and junior mining companies will be an invaluable asset to the Company.

Mr. MacLeod worked with Anglo American Corporation in both their Zambian and South African operations from the 1960's to the late 1970's and was not only metallurgical manager of some of their largest gold mines, but he also spearheaded the development of Anglo's Ergo project, a 2 million tonne per month tailings re-treatment project for the recovery of gold, uranium and sulphur from the historical Witwatersrand gold mining tailings dams. Mr. MacLeod moved to Canada in the 1980's, where he headed up a number of junior mining companies before negotiating the acquisition for control of Pamour Mines from Noranda and Giant Yellowknife Gold Mines from Falconbridge, becoming the chairman of these companies. The assets of these companies were combined to form a 200,000 oz per year gold producer. On disposing of his interests in these companies he formed Caledonia Mining Corporation with mining and exploration assets in a number of countries in Africa and Europe. Mr. MacLeod stepped down from active management of mining companies in 1996 and has since focused his activities on strategic investments, with a heavy emphasis on the mining sector.

Mr. MacLeod is a shareholder in Buchans Minerals and is keen to lend his expertise and experience to the development of the Company's assets.
