VANCOUVER, British Columbia – November 14th, 2022 – iMetal Resources, Inc. (TSX.V: IMR) (OTCBB: ADTFF) (FRANKFURT: A7V) (“iMetal” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Scott Zelligan, Vice President Exploration effective immediately. Mr. Zelligan will be responsible for leading the exploration and development of all the Company’s projects within the prolific Abitibi Greenstone Gold Belt.
Mr. Zelligan, a Professional Geoscientist registered in the Province of Ontario, has extensive experience in Ontario across his 14-year career to date: from underground in the Timmins camp to running exploration programs in the Northern Abitibi. His experience as a resource estimator, in addition to planning and managing drill programs, has given him a unique insight into project evaluation, development, and resource growth potential, a skill set pivotal to iMetal’s growth.
Mr. Zelligan was part of the team at Noront Resources that grew the Eagle’s Nest deposit by sevenfold. He has worked throughout North America, with a particular focus on gold in primary (orogenic) deposits. Most recently, Mr. Zelligan worked closely with Aurelius Minerals as a Senior Geologist to evaluate, acquire, and develop the Aureus Gold deposits in Nova Scotia. He planned drilling and created the geological model for the Aureus East deposit, which led to a maiden resource that more than tripled the previous historic resource.
Saf Dhillon, Chief Executive Officer, stated: “iMetal is very fortunate to add a seasoned Ontario geoscientist with such a broad skill set. Scott’s extensive experience meshes well with Gowganda West and our other Abitibi based projects. He has managed all aspects of project development from drilling though to resource development and growth and it is my great pleasure to welcome him to the iMetal team.”
The scientific and technical information contained in this news release has been reviewed and approved by R. Tim Henneberry, P. Geo (British Columbia), a director of iMetal and a qualified person as defined in National Instrument 43-101.
