HANNAN APPOINTS DR. QUINTON HENNIGH TO ITS GEOLOGICAL ADVISORY TEAM
Dr. Quinton Hennigh has been appointed to Hannan Metals Ltd.'s geological advisory team.
Dr. Hennigh is an internationally renowned economic geologist, with over 25 years of exploration experience and expertise with major gold mining companies such as Homestake Mining Company, Newcrest Mining Ltd. and Newmont Mining Corp. where he last served as senior research geologist in 2007. He has since made a number of significant gold discoveries for Canadian exploration companies such as the five-million-ounce Springpole alkaline gold deposit near Red Lake, Ont., for Gold Canyon Resources. He is currently chairman and president of Novo Resources Corp., which he helped start in 2010, and an adviser to Eskay Mining Corp. and Lion One Metals Ltd.
Michael Hudson, chairman and chief executive officer, commented: "We are delighted to have Quinton join the Hannan team and that he shares our belief of the exceptional potential of the San Martin project. His experience and global discovery record will greatly support our team as we work towards a large-scale copper-silver discovery in Peru."
Dr. Hennigh stated: "A little over a year ago, Keith Barron at Aurania Resources made a fantastic discovery of copper-rich mineralization in sedimentary rocks of the eastern foreland of the Ecuadorian Andes. While researching other companies exploring this region, I noticed Hannan had been quietly staking a commanding land position over areas hosting similar mineralization immediately to the south in northern Peru. Upon further investigation, it became apparent that the host rocks and style of mineralization Hannan is exploring are virtually identical to those discovered in Ecuador. Therefore, I came to the conclusion that this region hosts what is potentially a world-class copper province. Recently, I have gotten to know the high-calibre team at Hannan and am honoured they asked me to help with this game-changing discovery."
Dr. Hennigh holds a bachelor of science from the University of Missouri, and MSc and a PhD in geology and geochemistry from the Colorado School of Mines. He is a member (PGeo) of the Society of Economic Geologists, the Mining and Metallurgical Society of America.
