October 22, 2018 (Source) — United Battery Metals Corp. (CSE: UBM, OTC: UBMCF, FWB: 0UL) (“United Battery Metals” or the “Company”) announces board changes: George Sharpe has resigned as a director of the Company and the board has appointed Michael Dehn to serve as a director filling the vacancy created by Mr. Sharpe’s resignation.
Mr. Dehn has over 25 years of experience in the mining industry. Mr. Dehn has spent the majority of his career working with Goldcorp Inc. Between 1994 and 2005, he worked as an Exploration Geologist and later as a Senior Geologist with Goldcorp Inc. His expertise lies in grassroots to advanced minerals exploration, marketing, mineral processing and financing of junior mining companies.
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 advisor – 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. Dehn holds a B.Sc. degree in Earth Sciences from the University of Waterloo. Mr. Dehn is currently running as a mayoral candidate for the city of Erin, Ontario. His platform is based on the values he has learned as a leader in the capital markets – in particular, accountability, compliance, ethics, and communication.
“Michael is a perfect addition to our board,” commented Matthew Rhoades, Chief Executive Officer of United Battery Metals. “His leadership positions and experience with top tier mining companies such as Goldcorp Inc. together with his strong and varied non-executive background will further enhance the expertise of the Company’s board.”
The Company would like to thank Mr. Sharpe for his contribution to the Company and is pleased to announce that Mr. Sharpe had agreed to remain as an advisor to the board given his extensive experience with the listed mining companies.
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.
