Mr. Tomlinson will remain as Executive Chairman of the Company.
Mr. Struble is an executive and mining engineer with 30 years' experience in underground and open cut mines in the United States, Canada and Chile for companies including Barrick Gold, Meridian Gold, AngloGold and Homestake Mining. Greg brings considerable experience in engineering, supervision, and management of gold and precious metal mines. Importantly, Greg's teams were successful at improving efficiency and productivity, while at the same time, winning awards in health, safety and environment.
Mr. Tomlinson stated, "Greg is a strong leader and mine builder. He led Aurbec's operations at Vezza and Sleeping Giant in his prior role as Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer for North American Palladium and has a good working relationship with our employees and contractors." Mr. Tomlinson continued, "We are very excited with Greg's addition to our Team which we see as a key step in Maudore's strategy to build a significant mining group in the highly prospective, but underexplored, Northern Abitibi Region of Quebec".
"I am pleased to be joining the strong and dynamic management group at Maudore, and am looking forward to developing the company into a major gold producer in Québec," Mr. Struble said.
The Company is test mining at the Vezza project, processing this material at the Sleeping Giant Mill and pouring dore bars. Maudore has several other advanced gold projects and plans, in the medium-term, to update historical resources estimates of the Discovery and Flordin projects, generate a new 3D interpretation of geology and mineralization at Sleeping Giant and to improve the geologic model at Osbell. Maudore will also continue to evaluate other opportunities in the region.
