Toronto, Ontario – October 18, 2023 – Canadian Gold Corp. (TSXV: CGC) (“Canadian Gold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce, with the endorsement of Rob McEwen (the Company’s largest shareholder – 37.6% of the outstanding common shares), the appointment of Edward (Ed) Huebert, as President, Chief Executive Officer, and director. Ed will be replacing Ian Ball, who was serving as Interim President and CEO.
Ed is currently Special Advisor on Mining to the Cabinet Secretary on Economic Development for Manitoba, where he developed many of the province’s incentive programs, including the Mines Tax Holiday and Manitoba Exploration Tax Credit. He also served as acting mine manager for the Snap Lake Mine and environmental manager for De Beers’ Northwest Territories projects. Other notable positions held during his impressive career include Yukon’s Deputy Minister of Environment and Executive Vice President for the Mining Association of Manitoba. He has earned a Masters of Natural Resources Management Degree from the University of Manitoba and is a Ph.D. candidate, in Natural Resource Planning from the University of British Columbia.
Canadian Gold Corp. Chairman Peter Shippen said “Edward is a business leader with an excellent record, and joins the Company at a key time as our recent exploration success and engineering advancements continue to demonstrate the potential for reopening the Tartan Mine. Edward brings a tremendous skill set to the Company, from mine and exploration permitting, to government relations and mine operations. In an industry experiencing skills shortages, we have made excellent progress strengthening our operational team. I also want to personally thank Ian Ball, who was serving as Interim President and CEO since late April. Ian has agreed to devote whatever time is required to ensure a smooth transition as Ed begins his new role, particularly with regards to our current Phase 2 drilling program at the Tartan Mine and engineering studies.”
Rob McEwen, the Company’s largest shareholder also stated, “Having personally met several of the candidates, I was immediately impressed by Ed’s understanding of mining in Manitoba, the potential of the Tartan Mine, and what is needed to realize that value for our investors. I believe the board of directors has made an informed choice that should benefit Company greatly”.
