“I’m excited to work with John, Dan and the team behind Cross River,” said Mr. Klenman. “There’s a solid foundation already in place with the two projects in our portfolio. That’s just a start. Our goal is to build a dynamic and prominent exploration company that captures a large audience and creates significant value through strategic exploration and discovery, and by pursuing blue chip opportunities with expansive upside,” continued Mr. Klenman.
“We are very pleased to have Alex move into the CEO position at Cross River,” said John Fraser, president and chief financial officer. “Alex’s extensive experience and impressive work ethic will play a key role in the growth of Cross River,” continued Mr. Fraser.
