Having spent many years working with Premier as a joint venture partner, I’ve always enjoyed watching this management team creatively navigate and grow their business in seemingly any market environment. It is uncommon for a junior exploration company to find and grow one economic deposit and rarely do they make the transition into a producing entity. The team here as done both. It will be an exciting opportunity to work with a new growth oriented company with a high quality exploration pipeline like Premier.
I am eager to contribute the knowledge and experience I have gained in my career to help Premier continue this growth trajectory as it transforms into a producer. In particular, my previous experience in project development in Mexico and South America will aid in the smooth transition of the Mercedes Mine and help grow our presence in the area. I look forward to the closing of this deal and focusing on finding the future ounces of the project.
