Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Mr. Tim Hunt states; “Hunt Mining is delighted to have someone of Ken’s caliber and work experience to further the Corporation’s financial advancement. We also wish to express our appreciation for the insights and expertise Jim Meek has contributed to the transition from exploration to that of development and production of silver-gold concentrate and now gold-silver concentrate, from our properties in Argentina. We wish Jim the very best in this exciting new chapter, but are grateful he will continue to have a hand in our continued success.”
The appointment of Mr. Atwood is subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval.
Ongoing production at the Martha Project is being undertaken without established mineral resources or reserves and the Corporation has not established the economic viability of the operations on the Martha Project. As a result, there is increased uncertainty and economic risks of failure associated with these production activities.
