Smith, M.Sc., P.Geo., as Vice President of Exploration for the Company. Mr. Smith has served as Project Manager for exploration of the Company's Quebec properties since 2017, and further as a member of the Company's Board of Advisors since July 2018.
As a registered Professional Geologist with the Ordre des Géologues du Québec, Mr. Smith has over thirteen (13) years of experience in the mineral exploration industry and holds a master's degree in Geology from Carleton University in Ottawa.

Darren's experience spans high-level project management, including program design and implementation, technical reporting, land management, community engagement, and corporate disclosure. He has provided technical oversight for PEA, PFS, and FS level project advancement and has setup and monitored complex metallurgical programs for various commodities.
Throughout his career, Mr. Smith has developed an in-depth experience in the Junior mineral exploration industry, including the consultation, engagement, and dialogue with high-level representatives of various provincial governments, industry leaders, communities, and indigenous groups. This has led to numerous speaking engagements at several academic and industry workshops, and conferences throughout his career. In addition to his public speaking engagements, through his academic and industry collaborations, Mr. Smith has authored numerous international and peer reviewed publications throughout his career.
Company President & CEO Adrian Lamoureux comments: "We are delighted to have Darren joining the Company as Vice President of Exploration. Darren brings a considerable level of experience and expertise to our team and has played an integral role in the recent consolidation of the Company's land position at Corvette-FCI through the recent Option Agreement with Osisko Mining. We are very excited for this year's summer programs and the team we have in place. We are also well positioned for discovery with a land package that borders the Mythril Property held by Midland Exploration and their high-grade Cu-Au-Mo Ag discovery."
Management cautions that past results or discoveries on adjacent properties (i.e. Mythril) may not necessarily be indicative to the presence of mineralization on the Company's properties (i.e. FCI or Corvette).
