TORONTO, Feb. 07, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Euro Sun Mining Inc. (TSX:ESM) (“Euro Sun” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the appointment of Lisa Doddridge to the position of Vice President, Investor Relations & Corporate Communications. Ms. Doddridge is an accomplished and seasoned investor relations executive with close to 15 years of experience driving the investor relations and communications effort for several well known mid-tier mining companies. During her career Ms. Doddridge has formulated and executed the investor relations strategy for numerous high profile transactions totalling over $5 billion and debt and equity raises of close to $1.5 billion. Most recently she served as Vice President, Investor Relations & Corporate Communications at Yamana Gold Inc. and has been the recipient of several awards recognizing her efforts and performance.
“We are pleased to have Lisa join our team, strengthening our company management as we advance the development of our Rovina Valley Project,” commented G. Scott Moore, President and CEO of Euro Sun. “2018 will be an extremely busy year for Euro Sun with ratification of our mining license, Environmental Impact Assessment and Feasibility Study ongoing as well as a very busy marketing schedule and having someone of Lisa’s expertise will be a substantial addition to our team.”
The ratification process for the Mining License pertaining to the Rovina Valley Project is continuing. Currently, the Mining License has been signed by both the National Agency for Mineral Resources (“NAMR”) and by the Secretary General of Government (“SGG”) demonstrating full Government support for ratification. The remaining signatures required were expected during the week of January 15th, following a 30-day posting period from December 15th by SGG. However, the Prime Minister resigned on January 15th and a new Prime Minister and Cabinet was not installed until January 29th. The remaining signatures are expected imminently after which the Company will be able to announce the full ratification of the mining license. This is expected to occur sometime before the end of the month.

The project is comprised of three deposits: Rovina, Colnic and Ciresata. The Feasibility study, initiated late last year contemplates a phased development beginning with the Colnic deposit in Phase One and the Rovina deposit in Phase Two.
