deposits of the Canadian Cordillera, and VMS deposits in all areas of North
America. Successful ventures include recognition and discovery of the Santa Fe
gold mine in 1974, identification of the Calvada gold mine in 1979 and
discovery of the Mindora gold/silver deposit in 1981, all located in Nevada.
He is also credited with early identification of two VMS deposits at the

controlled gold deposit in British Columbia in 1979. John maintains a

stages of exploration, resource management and development combined with his
familiarity in the board room and extensive relationship base in the industry
will be a great asset to Golden Harp. We welcome John's contribution," said
Natasha Blackburn, CEO.
    "I commenced my career in 1964 in Northern Ontario, being based in
Timmins" Kerr stated. "The Canadian Shield is very near to my heart. I can
provide valuable input to ongoing work programs on the Company's Copper Hill
project and am excited to be included with the Golden Harp team" he added.

fulfilled its objective of adding significant technical depth to the team.
