March 23, 2021 (Source) — TRU Precious Metals Corp. (TSXV: TRU), (OTCQB: TRUIF) (“TRU” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the Company has hired Pearce Bradley, BSc, P.Geo. as Exploration Manager for the Company’s district-scale property portfolio in the Central Newfoundland Gold Belt. Mr. Bradley will oversee the planning, managing, and overall implementation of the Company’s mineral exploration programs, working closely with the Company’s Vice President of Property Development, Barry Greene, P.Geo.
A geologist with over 35 years’ experience, Mr. Bradley has worked across Canada in multiple roles in mineral exploration, mining, geotechnical and wellsite geology. He has performed many leadership and project management functions in each of these aspects, with a significant focus on Newfoundland exploration and mining development projects. Mr. Bradley most recently worked for Maritime Resources Corp. on its Hammerdown and Whisker Valley gold projects in the Baie Verte-Springdale Mining District in Newfoundland.
TRU Co-Founder and CEO Joel Freudman commented, “I am delighted to welcome Pearce to TRU. He is an excellent choice as our Exploration Manager, bringing a wealth of geological knowledge of Newfoundland. Pearce also has familiarity with the mine development process, both open pit and underground, from his prior employment with numerous gold and copper mining projects in Newfoundland. Pearce’s addition further amplifies our exploration team, to which we have also just added a Field Geologist for the 2021 exploration season. With TRU’s recent over-subscribed $3.5 million financing closed earlier this month, and the ongoing build-out of our team, TRU is increasingly well-positioned to unlock value for our enlarged shareholder base.”
TRU Exploration Manager Pearce Bradley added: “I am very excited about this opportunity to work with TRU on its exploration projects within the Central Newfoundland Gold Belt, including the Company’s flagship Golden Rose Project. I look forward to helping the entire team advance and build on the work that has already been done in amassing a promising land package in the region, and contributing to TRU’s systematic approach to its current and future exploration projects.”
The Company also wishes to provide an update that it continues to work with the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange”) in order to complete its Change of Business (as defined in Exchange policies) as expeditiously as possible, and thereafter to resume the trading of the Company’s common shares on the Exchange. The Company filed its comprehensive submission with the Exchange in mid-March, and will provide a further update in this regard when there is any material development.
