TORONTO, Feb. 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Greenland Resources Inc. (“Greenland Resources” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that Mr. William S. (Steve) Vaughan, a 2017 Mining Hall of Fame inductee, has joined the Company in an advisory role, with the objective of providing strategic and technical input to corporate decision-making.
Steve is a leading expert on mining and natural resources law with over four decades of legal and mining experience. Mr. Vaughan has advised and represented Canadian and international companies, served on many governmental advisory committees and has been involved in natural resource transactions in more than 70 countries. Steve has been an advisor and director of a number of professional and trade associations, including the Toronto Branch of the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum, the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) where he has been a director for more than 35 years, and the joint Toronto Stock Exchange / Ontario Securities Commission Mining Standards Task Force (the “Brex Task Force”). Among others, in 2002 Steve was the recipient of PDAC’s Distinguished Service Award, and in 2017 he was inducted into the Canadian Mining Hall of Fame. Steve earned a B.Sc. degree in geology from the University of New Brunswick (UNB) in 1959, followed by a M.Sc. degree from McGill University in 1962 and an LLD (honoris causa) from UNB in 2015.
Dr. Ruben Shiffman, Executive Chairman, commented: “We are thrilled to have an advisor of the calibre of Steve, his experience and network will be instrumental in the development of our strategic direction. To that end, our Malmbjerg molybdenum project is now more attractive than the one presented in the 2008 feasibility study, mainly due the melting of the glacier that has exposed significantly more contained molybdenum, as well as our Capex reductions by building infrastructure in shipyards in low cost jurisdictions and setting up on tidewater, instead of building on site.”
Mr. Vaughan commented: “I am excited to have the opportunity to participate in the development of a unique Molybdenum mineral deposit located in a politically stable jurisdiction where the financial, legal and infrastructure challenges are capable of being readily overcome and, at the same time, working with a talented group of mining and capital markets industry professionals with proven track records.”
The Company further announces that it has engaged Haywood Securities Inc. as a financial advisor, to assist in reviewing strategic partners to enhance shareholder value.
Mr. James Steel, P.Geo., M.B.A., a director of the Company and a Qualified Person under National Instrument 43-101, has reviewed and approved the technical information in this press release.
