We continue to strengthen the Calibre team with a focus on driving organic growth. Our exploration projects in Nevada and Nicaragua occur in highly prospective, gold-endowed regions where we are unlocking new value. John has extensive experience in Nevada successfully discovering, delineating and delivering millions of gold ounces with numerous mining companies including Newmont and leading the discovery of the 4 million ounce Rodeo-Goldbug discovery.
Pedro has been instrumental in leading our exploration efforts in Nicaragua resulting in new and meaningful discoveries including our recent high-grade Panteon deposit (809kt averaging 9.45g/t Au for 244koz of Probable Mineral Reserves) and new multi-kilometre VTEM Gold Corridor confirming the significant potential to make additional discoveries and expand on Calibre’s recent exploration success. Pedro’s experience and knowledge brings significant in-country geological experience to support our robust pipeline of exploration opportunities along the prolific, multi-million-ounce, western epithermal gold belt. We have an exciting opportunity in an under explored district and I look forward to Pedro’s contributions in his new role as Vice President of Exploration, Nicaragua.”
