CEO Jason Jessup commented: "We are absolutely delighted to be able to appoint a VP of Exploration of Mynyr's experience and calibre, which we think highlights the exploration potential that we have on our underexplored land package west of the Sudbury basin. Mynyr has a wealth of relevant experience and a phenomenal track record of base and precious metal discoveries in this region. I am very excited to be working with him again."
Dr Hoxha added "I am pleased and at the same time very excited to take on this great opportunity as Vice President of Exploration for Magna Mining. The Shakespeare Mine resource has great expansion potential and there is no shortage of highly prospective Ni-Cu-PGM targets on the regional Shakespeare property. The Shakespeare land package owned by the Company has a greater than 20km strike length and only a very small portion has been explored for Ni-Cu-PGE deposits. Magna has an experienced management team of professionals that have extensive experience in base metal exploration and mining, and they have a great vision for the Company. I am looking forward to being a full-time part of the team."
