June 30, 2016 - Rockhaven Resources Ltd. (TSX-V:RK) (“Rockhaven”) is pleased to announce that Mr. Marc Blythe has been appointed to the position of Vice President of Project Development.
“I am very pleased to welcome Marc to the Rockhaven team,” states Matt Turner, Rockhaven’s CEO. “Mr. Blythe brings mining, development and market experience and will be a major asset to Rockhaven as it continues to advance its 100% owned Klaza Gold-Silver Project in Yukon.”
Mr. Blythe has extensive international mining and mineral exploration experience for gold, copper, silver, nickel and zinc. He holds a master of business administration degree from La Trobe University in Melbourne and a bachelor of mining engineering degree from the Western Australian School of Mines. He has evaluated numerous projects worldwide, providing advice on project transactions and the associated debt and equity financing to buyers, sellers and financial institutions.
Mr. Blythe has managed mines for both Placer Dome Inc. and WMC Resources (formerly Western Mining Corp.) during his 22-year mining career. He has a strong understanding of mine feasibility and led two feasibility studies which resulted in successful operating mines: the Raleigh mine and the Bullant mine, both located near Kalgoorlie, Western Australia. The Raleigh mine exceeded its projected production rate, in part due to the development of innovative mining methods by Mr. Blythe.
During his tenure as corporate senior mining engineer for Placer Dome based in Vancouver, he completed internal and external mine evaluations, including advising on potential acquisitions and mining technology implementation.
Recently Mr. Blythe was president and chief executive officer of Tarsis Resources Ltd. until its merger with Alianza Minerals Ltd. in 2015. Mr. Blythe holds a Western Australian first-class mine manager’s certificate of competency, and is a member of the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of British Columbia, the British Columbia and Yukon Chamber of Mines and a director of the Yukon Minerals Advisory Board, which gives advice to Yukon government on mining and exploration matters.
Rockhaven has granted 2,995,000 incentive stock options to Mr. Blythe and other Directors, officers and consultants of Rockhaven. The stock options are exercisable at $0.25 per share for a period of five year and are subject to vesting provisions under which 25% of the options will vest at the conclusion of each three months during the first year of the exercise period.
Rockhaven Resources Ltd. is a mineral exploration company focused on growth through the advancement of its Klaza project. For additional information concerning Rockhaven or its Klaza project please visit Rockhaven’s website at www.rockhavenresources.com.
