TORONTO, November 11, 2020 – Treasury Metals Inc. (TSX: TML) (“Treasury” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the appointment of Jeremy Wyeth to the position of President and CEO effective December 7, 2020. Mr. Wyeth replaces Greg Ferron who will be transitioning to a consulting role effective immediately.
Mr. Wyeth brings more than 35 years of diverse international experience in the mining industry to this role. Most recently, Mr. Wyeth was Operations Director at a large engineering company, where he led the Oakville office with a strong focus on both local and international projects. During his tenure, he built a strong team that grew the business, seeing the office more than double in size in the last few years and with continued growth planned into the first quarter of 2021. Mr. Wyeth started his career with De Beers, and worked on mines around the world in Canada, Russia, Brazil and South Africa. With De Beers, he moved to Canada to lead the development, construction, commissioning and ramp up of the Victor Diamond Mine in Northern Ontario. He took the Victor project from pre-feasibility study to nameplate capacity. The Victor Project had a capital budget of $1 billion and under Mr. Wyeth’s leadership, it was completed 9 months ahead of schedule and under budget.
“On behalf of the board of directors, I would like to welcome Jeremy to Treasury Metals,” said Bill Fisher, Treasury Chairman. “Jeremy’s depth and breadth of experience, and his track record of mine-building on time and on budget, make him the ideal candidate to lead Treasury through its next phase of growth as we advance the Goldlund and Goliath Projects in Northwestern Ontario. Not only is he an experienced mine builder but he is also a successful team builder with an entrepreneurial spirit.”
Mr. Wyeth stated: “I am excited to be joining Treasury at this exciting period in its evolution and will be squarely focused on advancing the Goliath and Goldlund Projects. I look forward to working with key stakeholders and the Treasury team as we advance these projects through studies and ultimately a construction decision. One of my greatest career highlights was the successful development of the Victor mine, and I look forward to doing it again.”
“We would also like to extend our gratitude to Greg Ferron for his leadership, hard work and dedication to Treasury in various roles culminating in his tenure as CEO. The Board wishes Greg all the best in his future endeavours,” added Mr. Fisher.
Mr. Ferron announced his intention to step down earlier this year and will continue to act as an advisor to the Company to help ensure a smooth transition for the incoming CEO.
Mr. Wyeth will start as the Company’s President and CEO on December 7. Treasury will nominate Mr. Wyeth for election to the Board of Directors at the company’s next Annual General Meeting.
