Orestone Mining Corp. (TSX Venture Exchange-Symbol: ORS) (“Orestone” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Marc G. Blythe, P.Eng. to the Company’s Advisory Board.
Mr. Blythe has extensive international mining and mineral exploration experience for gold, copper, silver, nickel and zinc. He holds a Master of Business Administration degree from La Trobe University in Melbourne and a Bachelor of Mining Engineering degree from the Western Australian School of Mines. He has evaluated numerous projects worldwide, providing advice on project transactions and the associated debt and equity financing to buyers, sellers and financial institutions.
Mr. Blythe has managed mines for both Placer Dome and WMC Resources (formerly Western Mining Corporation) during his 25 year mining career. He has a strong understanding of mine feasibility and led two feasibility studies which resulted in successful operating mines; the Raleigh Mine and the Bullant Mine, both located near Kalgoorlie, Western Australia. The Raleigh Mine exceeded its projected production rate, in part due to the development of innovative mining methods by Mr. Blythe.
During his tenure as Corporate Senior Mining Engineer for Placer Dome Inc. based in Vancouver, he completed internal and external mine evaluations, including advising on potential acquisitions and mining technology implementation.
Recently Mr. Blythe was President & CEO of Tarsis Resources Ltd. until its merger with Alianza Minerals Ltd. in 2015.
