He will sit as a Board member and head the geological committee that GlobalMin Ventures will form.
Dr. Lechler comments, “I have been working closely with the Mining Commission in Guyana and we are progressing towards obtaining 10 Prospecting Licences. This will allow us to move forward with the next phase of exploration and test these targets with drill programs.”
The Company’s Platinum Project is located in Guyana, South America which is a mining friendly, English speaking and democratic country. The Project is made up of three main Target areas that are thought to be the sources of the Platinum Group Metals (PGM) present in river sediments located down stream of these Targets. The PGM discoveries are in an advanced exploration stage with results from exploration work in 2012 and 2013 further defining the mineralization in all three Targets.
