"As we build our Advisory Board I am glad to have a geologist of Mike's caliber join our team,” Bam Bam CEO David Greenway told shareholders in a statement.
“His broad range of experience working on world class projects brings a great deal of depth to our technical team. I am excited to know that the copper, gold, and silver exploration of our flagship Majuba Hill Project can attract someone with Dr. Ressel's corporate and academic credentials."
Vancouver-based Bam Bam’s flagship Majuba Hill copper-gold project is located 156 miles outside Reno and is comprised of just over 4,800 acres of surface and mineral rights, including three patented lode mining claims.
