INZINC APPOINTS WAYNE HUBERT AS CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER
Inzinc Mining Ltd. has appointed Wayne Hubert as chief executive officer of the company.
Mr. Hubert has over 20 years of senior management experience in the mining sector. He was most recently chief executive officer of Andean Resources from 2006 to 2010, when it was acquired by Goldcorp for $3.5-billion. At Andean, Mr. Hubert lead the team that increased resources to over five million ounces of gold and completed feasibility studies, financing and permitting prior to the takeover. Before his tenure at Andean, Mr. Hubert held senior management positions at Meridian Gold, where he gained considerable experience in finance, exploration, project development, permitting and construction. Mr. Hubert is currently a director of Austral Gold and Candeleria Mining. He has a bachelor of science in chemical engineering and an MBA.
"We are pleased to have Wayne become the driving force for growth at our two zinc projects," stated Kerry Curtis, non-executive chairman of Inzinc. "Wayne brings to Inzinc extensive experience, successful achievements and enthusiasm to further development of the advanced-stage West Desert project in Utah and the early-stage Indy project in British Columbia."
Mr. Hubert stated: "I believe Inzinc is at a turning point with strong zinc prices that have made the West Desert recently completed preliminary economic assessment more robust. However, I am more excited by the exploration potential at West Desert -- there is a significant precious metals component that has not been tested and impressive exploration potential at depth. The surface exploration at the Indy project this past year was successful in identifying a large zinc-lead-silver anomaly that is drill ready."
