Surge Cu names Chawrun, Blower to Ootsa, Berg committee

2021-04-13 07:25 ET - News Release

Mr. Leif Nilsson reports


Surge Copper Corp. has appointed Paul Chawrun and Steve Blower to a technical advisory committee that will assist the company in planning and executing its exploration and development efforts at the Ootsa and Berg projects.

Leif Nilsson, chief executive officer, commented: "Paul's proven track record in guiding the planning, design and execution of engineering programs for large, Tier 1 projects will provide a significant benefit to Surge as we advance our projects. Paul also brings to bear a highly relevant combination of technical and financial experience, as he was front and centre on Teranga's acquisition of the Massawa project from Barrick, which leveraged Teranga's infrastructure in the district and unlocked significant synergies, creating a step change in value for all stakeholders. Similarly, as we embark on both late-stage resource drilling activity and regional exploration in the Berg-Huckleberry-Ootsa district, Steve's extensive experience in exploration leadership, including at Huckleberry Mines, will prove invaluable."

Mr. Chawrun most recently served as chief operating officer of Teranga Gold Corp., providing technical leadership to a high-growth business from a single-asset producer, through multiple acquisitions, major project construction and capital project financing, culminating in the sale to Endeavour Mining Corp. Prior to Teranga, Mr. Chawrun served as the director of technical services at Detour Gold Corp., providing technical leadership of a large capital project from an exploration stage, through project scoping, feasibility and execution for operational readiness. Through earlier roles at Suncor Energy Inc. and Dynatec Corp., Mr. Chawrun has significant experience in design and management of tailings facilities, materials handling engineering studies, and strategic mine plan optimization. Mr. Chawrun holds dual degrees in mining engineering and geology from Queen's University and McMaster University, respectively, and an MBA from Athabasca University.

Mr. Blower is a professional geologist with over 25 years of experience in the minerals industry including mine geology, resource estimation and exploration for a variety of commodities. For the past 15 years, as president and chief executive officer of Pitchstone Exploration Ltd., vice-president, exploration, for Denison Mines Corp., and vice-president, exploration, for IsoEnergy Ltd., he has led exploration teams that have generated two significant discoveries of high-grade uranium deposits in the Athabasca basin. Earlier in his career, Mr. Blower served as mine geologist at the Huckleberry and Similco open-pit copper mines in British Columbia. Mr. Blower holds a BSc in geological sciences from the University of British Columbia and an MSc in geological sciences from Queen's University.
