The Vancouver, British Columbia-based company said Jeremy Ross comes to the board as a 20-year veteran in venture capital and marketing for small-cap to mid-tier mining companies.
Ross was a director with Fission Uranium Corp (TSE:FCU) from 2013 to 2017, as well as the corporate development consultant for Fission Energy, and head of corporate development for Able Auctions and Smart Tire Systems, the company said in a statement.
Ross’ “breadth of experience and successful track record in the mining sector will be of great value as we enter a new phase of activity,” said CEO Nav Dhaaliwal.
Ross’ naming to the board comes on the heels of another director appointment – Nathan Tribble, who is currently a vice president with Gatling Exploration Inc. He joined the board Tuesday, following the resignation of Wesley Hansen from the board.
Bluebird also announced that Leigh Hughes, a current director, has been appointed board chairman.
In other company news, Bluebird said it has granted incentive stock options to directors and officers for the purchase of 485,000 common shares at a price of $0.25 a piece for a period of three years.
Bluebird’s stock was unchanged at C$0.25 in Toronto and US$0.18 on the OTC markets.
