U.S. Gold's president and CEO, Edward Karr, praised the appointment, stating, "as the former Secretary of the Interior and a geologist, Commander Zinke has an in-depth knowledge of the governmental regulatory and permitting process for mining and exploration companies."
Karr particularly expressed hopes that Zinke may help the company's permitting process for its Copper King project in Wyoming. "We look forward to his future contributions to the overall Board, technical committees and permitting assistance with our Copper King project in Wyoming," he said.
"All of the Directors of U.S. Gold Corp. are thrilled to welcome the Honorable Ryan Zinke to our Board," Karr also said.
In its press release, the gold exploration and development company highlighted Zinke's achievements in college and especially as a U.S. Navy SEAL for 23 years. "He was awarded the Bronze Star for combat in Iraq and is credited with conducting 360 combat missions and the capture or kill of 72 terrorists," it said.
The document also recalled Zinke's four years as a state senator in Montana and two years as that state's sole member in the U.S. House of Representatives.
According to the company, during his two years as President Donald J. Trump's Secretary of the Interior, Zinke "was a champion of restoring the voice of state and local communities in land and wildlife management decisions, established and protected wildlife corridors, budgeted for the largest investment in our Nation's history for National Parks, increased public access for recreation and traditional use, and was the principal architect of the American Energy 'Dominance' policy."
The press release quoted Zinke as saying that he has confident that his experience "can add tremendous value" to U.S. Gold Corp. "I look forward to joining a winning team. U.S. Gold Corp. has attractive exploration and development projects in two mining friendly jurisdictions of Wyoming and Nevada. I am confident that my prior experience can add tremendous value to the company. I am excited to work closely with management and the Board to help make mining great again in America," Zinke said.[NLINSERT]
