QUÉBEC CITY, QUÉBEC--(Marketwired - March 11, 2014) - Komet Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:KMT) is pleased to announce that Mr. André Gagné has been appointed President and CEO. Mr. Gagné, who was already a member of the Board of Directors, has accepted with enthusiasm the challenge to manage this new gold exploration company recently listed on the TSX Venture exchange. Until last May, he was President and CEO of Robex Resources Inc., a Canadian mining company that he successfully restructured within 6 years from a distressed asset to a gold producer whose mine will start up this month. He is an accomplished businessman with over 30 years' experience and he is also member of the board of several companies.
Mr. Gagné states: ''It is with great pride that I accept this opportunity offered by the Board of Directors of Komet Resources. My strategy will be simple and efficient: bring together a competent multi-tasking team, find and acquire promising projects and ensure the sustainability and growth of Komet by way of mine production as soon as possible."
We wish to mention all the efforts and leadership of Mr. Michel Lebeuf Jr. as CEO and President during the transitional period. Komet will benefit from Mr. Lebeuf's experience as he will remain Director.
Appointment of Mr. Robert Wares as Chairman of the Board of Directors
Bob Wares' reputation needs no introduction. Co-Founder of Osisko Mining and Director on the Board of many mining exploration companies, he is also the President and Director of the Quebec's Order of Geologist (Ordre des géologues du Québec).
