November 8, 2018 (Source) — It is with much pleasure that United Battery Metals Corp. (CSE: UBM, OTC: UBMCF, FWB: 0UL) (“United Battery Metals” or the “Company“) wishes to announce that former Goldcorp Senior Geologist Michael A. Dehn has accepted the role of President and CEO of United Battery Metals.
Mr. Dehn has over 25 years of experience in the mining industry. As a graduate of the University of Waterloo Michael Dehn worked for Goldcorp for 11 years. During his 11 year tenure with that company Michael played a vital role in Goldcorp’s regional exploration programs within the Red Lake District, as well as the Goldcorp Challenge – where all of Goldcorp’s Red Lake Mine Data was shared with the whole world and outside experts had the opportunity to win prizes totalling $575,000 to participants who came up with the best suggestions on where to find the next six million ounces of gold in the mine.
As a geologist, Michael is considered by many to be one of the authorities on the idiosyncrasies of the Red Lake Gold Camp, and has represented Goldcorp as an exhibitor at more than 200 mining conventions and expositions throughout North America. In previous roles with other mining and exploration companies, Mr. Dehn has been instrumental in their positioning for both strategic and operational successes. He has proven himself a trusted industry adviser — introducing unique investor groups, often outside the mining arena, to new opportunities in the mining and exploration space. He has been a director of publicly traded and private junior mining companies with listings on the North American and European stock exchanges.
Mr. Matthew Rhoades moves to the position of VP Exploration and remains a director of the Company. Mr. Rhoades will be managing the upcoming drill program on the Wray Mesa property that has been designed by him and Anthony Kovschak.
The Company’s common shares trade on the OTC Markets Group Inc.’s over-the-counter market in the United States and are DTC eligible with the Depository Trust Company (DTC), under the symbol UBMCF, on the CSE under the symbol UBM and in Germany on the Frankfurt exchange under the symbol 0UL.
ON BEHALF OF THE BOARD OF
UNITED BATTERY METALS CORP.
/s/ Michael Dehn
Chief Executive Officer and Director
