Canadian Explorer-Developer Appoints Its Chief Geologist as President

Share on Stocktwits


Brian May, the newest addition to Triumph Gold's leadership team, is intimately familiar with the company's flagship Freegold Mountain project, given his extensive involvement in recent exploration work there.

Triumph Gold Corp.'s (TIG:TSX.V; TIGCF:OTCMKTS) leaders have collective experience in exploration, development and mining, and the company recently enhanced that team by appointing geologist Brian May as the president. May will begin serving in that capacity on Oct. 1, 2021.


"The Vancouver-headquartered company identified about 20 mineralized zones [at Freegold]."




Previously, May was Triumph's chief geologist and in that role was heavily involved in planning, preparing for and executing the 2021 exploration program at Freegold Mountain in the Yukon. A news release described May's employment background.

Through that work at Freegold Mountain, the Vancouver-headquartered company identified about 20 mineralized zones there. It also delineated resource gold equivalent ounces (2,000,000 contained) at three deposits: Revenue (Au-Ag-Cu-Mo), Nucleus (Au-Ag-Cu), and Tinta Hill (Au-Ag-Cu-Pb-Zn).

Growth-oriented Triumph keeps on creating shareholder value by aggressively exploring the property, evaluating the array of other targets there and building ounces at the known deposits.

Freegold Mountain, 200 square kilometers in size and Triumph's flagship project, sits in the Yukon's Dawson Range copper-gold belt. Within Freegold Mountain lies a large part of the Big Creek Fault zone, directly related to epithermal gold and silver mineralization in addition to gold-rich porphyry copper mineralization.

The Dawson Range hosts well-known deposits and projects, including Newmont Corp.'s Coffee, Rockhaven Resources' Klaza, Copper North Mining's Carmacks and Western Copper and Gold's Casino.

Along with Freegold Mountain, Triumph's district-scale land package in northwestern Canada encompasses two other projects, Big Creek and Tad/Toro. Both of these copper-gold assets are situated along strike of Freegold Mountain.
