Sensible partnerships; they have been important to us. Today’s press release announcing Premier’s recently confirmed Senior Technical Advisors, Charlie Ronkos and Peter Mah, is really just an extension of that thinking.Together, Charlie and Peter have very complementary skill sets and Premier is fortunate that they have chosen to direct those skills in support of Premier’s vision for growth. We have had the pleasure of working with Peter and Charlie in previous roles and we look forward to their valuable contributions as we continue to grow Premier through successful exploration and acquisitions and working alongside our valued project partners.

Peter has extensive experience in Northwestern Ontario at Goldcorp’s Red Lake operations (previously the Campbell and Red Lake Mines) as well as at Musselwhite. He developed the successful application of underhand cut and fill mining in Red Lake and was Mine General Manager at the Victor diamond mine as well. He has a great story about a soft ice cream machine called “Nameplate” that played a role in Victor reaching its production targets early in the life of that operation. Another sensible partnership story for sure!

Charlie is no stranger to the jurisdictions we conduct business in, particularly Nevada.He is also no stranger to Premier and its projects having been a long-time partner at Goldcorp where he helped to foster a relationship we continue to enjoy. His insight and experience in other jurisdictions will provide valuable guidance to our team. Recently, he helped establish the Gold Diggers Block at another venture outside of mining.

Both Charlie and Peter have diverse world-wide experience that will complement our existing team as we advance our key assets and assess additional project opportunities.

Welcome aboard gentlemen……and fasten your seat belts!
