Blackrock Gold Corp (CVE:BRC) Tuesday unveiled management changes.
In boardroom news, John Seaberg has joined as director. Seaberg replaces Tom Bruington on the board. Seaberg recently served as senior vice-president, strategic relations, for Klondex Mines from 2015 to 2018, when Klondex was purchased by Hecla Mining.
In a separate statement, Blackrock also said it had hired Nevada exploration veteran Brian Morris as president of its subsidiary Blackrock Gold (US) Corp.
Morris was also at Klondex, serving as senior vice president of exploration. He also held management positions with Newmont Mining Corp, Hecla Mining and Great Basin Gold Ltd.
He has a proven track record in early and advanced stage exploration in addition to advancing near mine projects into production.
"We are thrilled to have Brian join the Blackrock team," said Gregory Schifrin, the firm's chief executive.
"His extensive experience in exploration and production in epithermal gold deposits, especially on the Northern Nevada Rift, is a hand-in-glove fit with advancing our flagship Silver Cloud property.
"Moreover, from his working understanding on major deposits in the Rift like Midas, Hollister and Fire Creek, he will bring extensive knowledge to unlock the potential at Silver Cloud."
