Mr. John Bossio, Chairman noted “CMC Metals is in a strong financial position. Looking back at 2022 we have accomplished a lot and the advancement of our property portfolio is exceeding our expectations. The addition of Mr. Kristian Whitehead, a highly experienced geologist in Yukon and British Columbia and who created and operated his own exploration drilling company. He has already proven to be an asset to our company since he joined us initially as a Geological Advisor and we are looking forward to his contribution in helping us enhance shareholder value in these challenging market conditions. We are looking at a range of growth opportunities for 2023. And of course, we are especially excited about the potential of such properties as Silverknife in the Rancheria Silver District where plans to conduct a 3,000-meter program this summer are well underway.”
