allowed me to work with geologists who are amongst the best in the world. The
prospectors, industry geologists and companies that I have worked with in the
Yukon are second to none as exemplified by their determination and resounding
success that is fuelling the current exploration boom and opening of new
mines in the Yukon. I have decided to return to the private sector and look
forward with great anticipation to joining Golden Predator and its commitment
to the pre-eminent mining jurisdiction of the Yukon. I share their enthusiasm
and believe their quality projects, excellent technical team and proven
management offer an exceptional opportunity to create a truly dynamic 'Yukon'
