Robin McCulloch, a senior mining engineer with the Montana Bureau of Mines and Geology in Butte, Montana for the past 25 years, assisted the mining industry with permitting, exploration, mine design, engineering and mine geology. Although his main focus was on small to medium sized operations, Robin McCulloch worked directly with all of the mining industry through the Montana Mining Association where he has been a member of the board of directors for most of his career.
The Butte properties host the majority of the silver mines operated by the Anaconda Corporation ("Anaconda") in the Butte Mining District from the late 1800s until the 1970s when Anaconda ceased operations. They include numerous ore bodies with significant remaining silver/zinc/copper/lead mineralization and a number of developed underground mines, including surface facilities, serviceable head frames for hoisting and power installations.
Mr. Shipes, the President and CEO of International Silver, Inc. commented: "We are very fortunate to have added Robin to spearhead the company's Butte development plans; he has a tremendous wealth of experience and industry knowledge."
