VANCOUVER, BC, April 13, 2021 /CNW/ – Metallis Resources Inc. (TSXV: MTS) (OTCQB: MTLFF) (FSE: 0CVM) (the “Company” or “Metallis”) is pleased announce the appointment of Charlie Greig and Dr. Michelle Campbell to the Company’s Technical Advisory Board, effective immediately. Both have joined the team with a singular objective of providing technical and strategic guidance on the development of the 2021 drill program (the “Program”) at the Kirkham Property. The clear deliverable of the Program will be to target the deeper higher-grade copper-gold mineralized zones of the 7.5 km-long Hawilson Monzonite porphyry complex lying within the Property.
Metallis’ President and CEO Fiore Aliperti stated, “We believe that the strength of Metallis and its value proposition for our investors, begins and ends with our technical team. These two highly qualified additions to our Advisory Board bring a wealth of knowledge to the table, which includes their recent experience working on major resource projects in the immediate area. Whether it is Michelle’s analytical research work at Seabridge Gold’s KSM, the world’s largest undeveloped gold project, or Mr. Greig’s latest success story at GT Gold’s Saddle North, culminating its rapid development from discovery to sale to Newmont in just four short years. Both project stories are nothing short of incredible.” He went on to add, “This is a statement of intention from the Metallis team that we are serious about developing Kirkham into the next success story in the Golden Triangle. We are extremely excited and grateful to have them on board. Their agreement to join Metallis should be taken for what it is, a confidence marker that we are sitting on a project with great potential to be the next world class discovery in the Golden Triangle.”
Joining the Metallis Technical Advisory Board are:
