VANCOUVER, BC – TheNewswire - (October 4, 2022) Gama Explorations Inc. (CSE:GAMA) (“Gama” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the appointment of Mick Carew as Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) of the Company, effective immediately. Mr. Carew is currently a director of Gama.
With a combination of capital markets experience and technical expertise, Mr. Carew has been involved in the mining sector for over 25 years. As a geologist, he has both regional and near-mine mineral exploration experience working for several major and junior mining/exploration companies over a 15-year period, including BHP and Ivanhoe Mines. He has experience working on a variety of uranium, base and precious metal ore deposits in Australia, Canada and Asia. Mr. Carew also has corporate management experience at the executive level. As a research analyst at Haywood Securities, Mr. Carew used his technical expertise to evaluate companies and projects ranging from early and advanced stage exploration, resource and development to production. Mr. Carew holds a BSc (Hons) from Monash University, Melbourne and a PhD from James Cook University, Australia.
In conjunction with Mr. Carew’s appointment as CEO, Gama’s current president and director, Allan Larmour, will be stepping down from his executive role while remaining on the Company’s board of directors. Gama would like to thank Mr. Larmour for his instrumental role in establishing the Company and bringing it to its current stage and looks forward to his continued involvement as a director of the Company.
Mr. Larmour stated “We are excited to welcome Mick to the Gama team. He will be an important addition as we continue to expand our portfolio and advance exploration on our assets. Mick brings extensive exploration and corporate experience to the table, and we believe the Company will benefit greatly from his involvement as CEO.”
Mr. Carew noted, “I am excited to join Gama’s management team to help develop exploration strategies for both the Big Onion copper-porphyry project and the newly-acquired Tyee claims. Based on the work done thus far, I believe that there is significant value to be unlocked by taking a new approach to exploration to unlock higher-grade zones to complement the Big Onion’s historical resource. Additionally, I believe our Tyee nickel claims are in a highly prospective area where a disciplined approach to defining targets could lead to considerable upside in the asset.”
