TORONTO, ON – AurCrest Gold Inc. (the “Company” or “AurCrest“) (TSX-V: AGO) (FRANKFURT: TM8A, WKN: A0YG1K) is pleased to announce that Mr. Stan Beardy of Muskrat Dam First Nation will be joining the Company’s Board of Directors.
Mr. Beardy’s appointment is subject to approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”).
Mr. Beardy has proven his leadership skills in the fields of politics, business, and community development over a forty-five year period. Serving as Chief of Muskrat Dam First Nation for fifteen years, as the Grand Chief of the Nishnawbe-Aski Nation for twelve years, and as the Ontario Regional Chief with the Chiefs of Ontario for three years, Mr. Beardy has developed a keenly refined sense for politics at the community, regional, and national levels. Mr. Beardy’s deep experience in economic and organizational development regarding health, education, employment, tourism, and indigenous business, and how they interconnect regionally, nationally and internationally, will be of great value to our team.
The long years of service to his people and their communities has brought with it an understanding of social development, land use, traditional justice, peace-keeping – particularly as it relates to Federal and provincial matters – and infrastructure and large-scale economic projects. As a Chief of some 30 years of experience, Mr. Beardy has access to an extensive professional network, at all levels locally and nationally, and has promoted Indigenous culture and business globally, ranging from sessions in India to the United Nations in New York. We thank Mr. Beardy for bringing his business acumen to AurCrest, and look forward to his assistance in advancing projects in remote regions of Northwestern Ontario, the traditional territory of the Nishnawbe people, to the Canadian and Global markets.
