Legein, PGeo., a seasoned exploration geologist, as Vice-President,
Exploration, for the Company.
Peter brings more than 25 years experience exploring for base and

mineral exploration clients on the use of the Titan 24 Induced
Polarization-Magnetotelluric system. Peter holds a BSc in Geology from

forward as we prepare for our expected increase in activities this
year, and continues the ongoing corporate expansion the Company began
during 2010. Peter's geological knowledge, management and industry
experience, will add considerable depth to our team."
