His extensive experience in, and knowledge of, the jurisdictions where Metallic Minerals is active represents a great asset to the Company.

It’s an exciting time in the precious and base metals markets for a dynamic exploration and development company like Metallic Minerals. We expect 2022 to be pivotal year for the Company and we have significant and substantive news to deliver over the ensuing weeks, including the Company’s inaugural resource estimate at La Plata and a robust and dynamic field exploration season on all three of the Company’s projects.”
Metallic Minerals Chairman & CEO, Greg Johnson, stated, “Through his successful career, Scott has repeatedly demonstrated the ability to recognize potential tier one quality deposits, efficiently advancing significant exploration projects through discovery, resource expansion, and subsequent engineering and de-risking to generate shareholder value. Scott is a leader and consensus builder with extensive ESG experience developed through his hands-on engagement with First Nations, Alaska Native Corporations and local communities. As the Company enters this next period of rapid development on multiple projects, I am confident that Scott will contribute significantly to Metallic Minerals in this expanded role going forward.”
About Metallic Minerals
Metallic Minerals Corp. is a growth-stage exploration company, focused on high-grade silver, gold and copper projects in underexplored, brownfields mining districts of North America. Our objective is to create shareholder value through a systematic, entrepreneurial approach to exploration in the Keno Hill silver district, La Plata silver-gold-copper district, and Klondike gold district through new discoveries and advancing resources to development. Metallic Minerals has consolidated the second-largest land position in the historic Keno Hill silver district of Canada's Yukon Territory, directly adjacent to Alexco Resource Corp’s operations, with nearly 300 million ounces of high-grade silver in past production and current M&I resources. In addition, exploration at the recently acquired La Plata silver-gold-copper project in southwestern Colorado is targeting a silver and gold-enriched copper porphyry and adjacent high-grade silver and gold epithermal systems. The Company also continues to add new production royalty leases on its holdings in the Klondike gold district in the Yukon. All three districts have seen significant mineral production and have existing infrastructure, including power and road access. Metallic Minerals is led by a team with a track record of discovery and exploration success on several major precious and base metal deposits, as well as having large-scale development, permitting and project financing expertise.
