Peter Lacey commented: “I am excited to join Braveheart as an independent director. Braveheart has acquired two significant past-producing copper projects in Canada. Based on the quality of its assets Braveheart is currently under-valued. My top priority will be to assist management in completion of a restart of the Bull River Mine. I am very familiar with the Bull River project and believe it is one of the most advanced copper projects in Western Canada that can become a copper producer within the near term”.
David W. Johnston, Chairman of the Board commented: “I am extremely pleased to welcome Peter Lacey to our Board. Peter has a strong business acumen and is a seasoned executive and director. His diverse industry background will further strengthen the depth of our Board. I want to thank Brian Murray for his guidance and support as a founder of Braveheart. He helped lay the foundation for the Company we have today. We wish Brian all the best in retirement”.
