TORONTO, Sept. 5, 2018 - Havilah Mining Corporation (TSXV: HMC) ("Havilah" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Scott Anderson as Vice President, Exploration.
Scott brings over 25 years of experience in government geoscience, mineral exploration, academia and independent consulting specializing in structurally controlled mineralization. He has worked for major and junior mining and exploration companies in Canada and Mexico, including four years as Senior Structural Geologist with Campbell Resources Inc. in Sonora, Mexico.
Most recently, Scott was the Chief Geologist of Precambrian Geoscience with the Manitoba Geological Survey (the "Survey"). In his 17 years with the Survey, Scott's primary research focus was to document the stratigraphic and structural controls on orogenic gold mineralization in the Archean Rice Lake greenstone belt. This included a definitive study of the Rice Lake mining camp near Bissett, Manitoba, site of Havilah's True North mine and mill complex ("True North"). Scott is a registered professional geoscientist with Engineers Geoscientists Manitoba and an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Geological Sciences at the University of Manitoba. He holds geology degrees from the University of Manitoba (B.Sc., Hons, 1992) and Dalhousie University (Ph.D., 1998).
Blair Schultz, Chairman and Interim President and Chief Executive Officer, states "We are very pleased to welcome Scott to Havilah. With his 17 years spent focusing on Manitoba, Scott brings a deep understanding of the geology in the province and joined Havilah to focus on the Rice Lake District. His extensive knowledge of the camp and surrounding properties are paramount to our success."
Our team has currently re-logged approximately 75% of the Ogama-Rockland core, and are expecting approval in September to drill our initial holes on the property. Pending those results, we expect a comprehensive exploration program to be designed, and continue drilling in the late winter or early spring.
