The company noted that he spent much of his time in the Bergslagen working on the polymetallic Stollberg Project, which is located approximately 40 kilometers (km) southwest and along trend from District's Tomtebo Property. He specializes in prospect evaluation, target generation, historical data compilation, exploration permitting and community relations, geological mapping and sampling, planning and supervision of drilling campaigns, 3D geological modelling, and GIS & Database management.

"The appointment of Hein as Country Manager of Sweden is a significant addition to the team for District Metals,” said District CEO Garrett Ainsworth in a statement.

“I've been working with Hein as a consultant to District since the beginning of this year, and I am excited that he has agreed to join our team in a more formalized position. His technical knowledge of polymetallic deposits and permitting experience in the Bergslagen Mining District is a great asset to the Company, and the timing could not be better as we prepare to embark on our maiden drill program focused on the historic Tomtebo Mine."
