First Mining appoints Maxwell as VP of exploration

2021-10-12 10:32 ET - News Release

Mr. Daniel Wilton reports


First Mining Gold Corp. has appointed James Maxwell as vice-president of exploration effective Oct. 25, 2021.

Mr. Maxwell is a professional geoscientist with over 20 years of industry experience with a focus on exploration and development of orogenic gold discoveries, and has been part of discovery teams responsible for five major gold discoveries in Nunavut and Red Lake, Ont. Mr. Maxwell was previously with Sabina Gold & Silver Corp. as director of exploration where he helped establish a six-million-ounce gold resource base from discovery to the feasibility study level. Prior to working in Nunavut, Mr. Maxwell established an early career in the Birch-Uchi and Red Lake greenstone belts where his team earned a Northwestern Ontario Prospectors Association Discovery of the Year Award for the Rahill-Bonanza discovery. He is a long-standing member of the PDAC health and safety committee and was a recent speaker for the 2019 Newgen Gold Conference held in Perth, Australia. Mr. Maxwell holds a bachelor's of science degree from the University of Manitoba with a focus on geological sciences and is registered with the Professional Geoscientists Ontario and the Northwest Territories and Nunavut Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists.

"We are very pleased to have James joining the First Mining team," stated Dan Wilton, chief executive officer of First Mining. "His strong background in Red Lake geology, his experience at Sabina in adding value to existing deposits through regional exploration, and his passion for discovery make him an ideal candidate to lead First Mining's efforts to surface the significant geologic potential of our portfolio of Canadian gold projects. First Mining controls the largest land package in the underexplored Birch-Uchi greenstone belt and we look forward to having James lead our efforts to prove that the current gold resource base at Springpole is the starting point, not the end, of gold discovery in the district."
