Jeff Callaway, Blacksteel's CEO, commented, "We are very pleased to have Duncan Nightingale join the Board. His wealth of international experience in operations from South America, to Africa, to Eastern Europe and the Middle East will support the execution of Blacksteel's business plan. Duncan is already heavily engaged in due diligence on international opportunities while he is supporting the development plan at Girouxville which provides low risk near term cash flow growth upside. Our current priority is the closing of the second tranche of the private placement and consolidation of the Girouxville asset which would mark major milestones of the current business plan."
"The reserve report indicated a $7.86 million 2P Before Tax value which is 91% growth year over year net to Blacksteel. The property value would be $26.2 million on a 100% basis utilizing a 2P Before Tax assumption. Further, additional value from more drilling locations could be realized from a successful work program Blacksteel is considering."
