VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Dec. 05, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Ethos Gold Corp. (“Ethos” or the “Company”) (TSXV:ECC) is pleased to announce that Melvin Herdrick has joined its Board of Directors. Mel is a professional geologist with over 35 years of experience in exploration in the United States and Mexico, including 9 years as Chief Geologist for Phelps Dodge in Mexico from 1994 to 2003, and 8 years as Vice President of Exploration for Pediment Gold Corp. until its takeover by Argonaut Gold Inc. in 2011. Mel has worked as a consultant to Ethos and has played a lead role in identifying and evaluating gold exploration opportunities for Ethos in Mexico, including the recently announced option to acquire the La Purisima property in Chihuahua.
Gary Freeman, President and CEO of Ethos stated that, “Mel and I worked closely together for many years building assets into Pediment Gold, raising funding and executing on various exploration campaigns, leading to the discovery of the San Antonio deposit, the purchase of the La Colorado mine, and the sale of Pediment to Argonaut Gold for approximately $140 million. I am very excited to be working with Mel again, and to pursue a similar strategy with Ethos Gold. Our intention is to build a portfolio of prospective gold exploration projects focused in Mexico, and to allocate our resources judiciously in advancing these opportunities. Mel is based in Hermosillo and has outstanding abilities to access opportunities, manage exploration programs, and efficiently assist Ethos in executing our strategy.”
