VANCOUVER, British Columbia – July 5th, 2023 – iMetal Resources Inc. (TSX.V: IMR) (OTCQB: IMRFF) (FRANKFURT: A7V) (“iMetal” or the “Company”) sadly has to report the sudden and unexpected passing of our young and talented CFO, Eduardo ‘Eddy’ Yu.
iMetal President and CEO Saf Dhillon said that “On behalf of the Board of Directors and the Advisory Council, we offer our deepest condolences to the Yu family. Eddy was officially only with us for a few months but, I’ve known him for several years now. Eddy had previously provided his financial and business expertise as a consultant to iMetal and other projects that I have been involved in. He was a strong team player and he went above and beyond what his responsibilities were. He will be dearly missed by the team at iMetal.”
As Mr. Yu’s untimely passing just occurred within the last few days, the Company will expect to issue a further update regarding the now vacant role of CFO.
