Solid Resources, Greg Pendura, said:
The management and Board of Directors are delighted with the addition of Bill to our board. Bill brings a wealth of experience to the Company in both the planning and development of mining operations as well as executive leadership with publicly listed mining companies. Bill’s involvement in the 2011 reactivation of Labrador Iron Mines, James Mine in the Schefferville Region of the Labrador Trough, will be of particular value to the Company as we advance our Cehegin iron ore project. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Harry McKinders for his significant contribution to Solid Resources as a long term director. While Harry is stepping aside from the board, he will remain close to the team as a consultant.
