KIRKLAND LAKE, ON, June 2, 2011 /CNW/ - Mistango River Resources (CNSX:MIS) is pleased to announce that Nelson W Baker P.Eng., has agreed to join the Board of Directors.

Mr. Baker, P.Eng., has been active in the mineral exploration business for over 50 years, beginning at age 14 as an assistant to his father, who was then prospecting at Hemlo, Ontario. He attended the Haileybury School of Mines where he received his Mining Technology Diploma (1964), followed by studies at the South Dakota School of Mines from which he graduated with a B.Sc. in Geological Engineering (1968). Mr. Baker is an active and registered member of Professional Engineers in the provinces of Ontario and British Columbia. After graduating he subsequently spent 14 years as a senior geologist with Esso Minerals Canada based in eastern Canada and an additional 15 years as an exploration consultant focussing in such well known mining districts as Hemlo, Red Lake, Timmins, Rice Lake, Kirkland Lake, Detour, Casa Berardi and Chibougamau in Quebec. Mr. Baker has served continuously as a geological consultant with Nelson W. Baker Geological Services Ltd., his private company, since 1984.

In 2001, Mr. Baker joined Vancouver-based Hunter Dickinson Group as a mining project evaluator, working on programs in the Raglan area of Quebec and elsewhere. With the recovery in commodity markets, Mr. Baker left Hunter Dickinson to found Rainy River Resources Ltd. (TSXV:RR), where he served as a director and President and Chief Executive Officer from March 2005 to June 2009. In June 2009 he retired from his role as President and CEO and joined Mineral Mountain Resources Ltd. (TSXV:MMV), a newly-formed junior resource company and serves as its President and CEO. In addition, he also serves on the Boards of Temex Resources Corp. (TSXV:TME) and PC Gold Inc. (TSE:PKL) and Northern Rand Resource Corp. (TSXV:NRR).

Commenting on Mr. Baker's appointment Robert Kasner, President and CEO of Mistango commented: I am very pleased that Nelson has joined our board. His experience and background will greatly help MIS as it moves forward on developing its exploration properties.
