Effective immediately, Marco Montecinos has been appointed to the Company's Board of Directors as an independent director. Mr. Montecinos has extensive knowledge of Nevada and Arizona operations and will leverage his experience to help the Company advance the Mohave Mine Gold Project (the "Project").
Mr. Montecinos is a respected mining professional with over 35 years experience in exploration projects and resource development in the Americas. Mr. Montecinos worked as a Senior Consultant to Intrepid Mines Ltd. in the Americas and in Australia and was Vice President of Exploration for Montana Gold. From 1983 to 1997 he worked in various capacities with numerous junior, intermediate and senior companies including Francisco Gold, Phelps Dodge, Placer Dome, Billiton, Alta Gold and Nerco Minerals.

Adrian Smith, President of M3 Metals comments "We are grateful to Mr. Montecinos for offering his extensive knowledge and experience which we believe will be very relevant to our Mohave Mine Gold Project. Mr. Montecinos' experience will be key to completing a successful exploration campaign and allowing the Company to leverage the extensive historic data available to complete a up-to-date 43-101 resource estimate on the project."
The Company also wishes to announce the resignation of Simon Clarke as a Director. M3 Metals thanks Mr. Clarke for his efforts and contributions to date and wishes him the best in his future endeavors.
The Project area covers numerous historic underground past-producing gold mines in the Weaver mining district, Mohave County, Arizona, USA. Three main areas on the Project include the Dixie Area, Klondyke Area and Golden Door Area.
The Company intends to complete an extensive drilling campaign to expand on the over 500 historic drill holes located on the Project. Currently the Company is utilizing the extensive historic database preserved from the previous operators who began development of the project in the 1990's. The Company continues to digitize the extensive historic database including underground mine workings, geological mapping, historic drill logs and assay sheets from over 500 historic drill holes, and the abundant surface soil and rock data to prioritize drill targets for the planned drilling program.
The Company has secured an option to acquire the mineral rights to all the historic mines falling within the Project area and believes they may be related to a property wide gold system. M3 Metals has the right to acquire a 100 percent right, title and interest in the Mohave Mine Gold Project comprised of a total of 160 lode and mill-site claims.
