OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Oct. 25, 2016) - Majescor Resources Inc. ("Majescor" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:MJX) is pleased to announce the nomination of Mr. Jacques Letendre to its Board of Directors which will be presented to the shareholders at their annual meeting on October 31, 2016.
Mr. Letendre's subsequent work in various fields of geology (paleontology, sedimentology, marine geology, Quaternary geology) led him to join De Beer's Canadian subsidiary early in 1982. Since then, that is for the last 30 years, his interest has been focused mostly, but not uniquely, on diamonds, be it in the Americas or in Africa.
His career in the diamond industry includes a 12 year stint with De Beers Canada (from 1982 to 1994) during which his promotional path evolved from Project Geologist to Exploration Manager for the whole of Canada. From 1994 to 1998, he proceeded to establish and manage Golden Star Resource's Diamond Division in Guyana, South America. Since 1999, apart from consultancy work, he has been involved with the start-up and management of Majescor Resources Inc. and from 2006 to 2007, with the management (as President) of North American Minerals Group, a private company.
During his stay with De Beers Canada, he spearheaded their expansion of the Company in the Canadian Prairies, as well as in the then Northwest Territories, discovering the first kimberlites in Saskatchewan and Alberta. He is also credited with the discovery of the large diamondiferous komatiite at Dachine, in French Guiana, with drilling the first kimberlite pipe in Ontario, and with leading the team that discovered the first known kimberlites in Madagascar.
He has been directly involved with the early evaluation of kimberlites in Canada (Alberta, Quebec, Saskatchewan) and Brazil. Since 2005, the nature of the exploration industry led him to diversify into exploration for gold, base metals, Rare Earth Elements and Uranium. This led, on Majescor's behalf, to the highlighting of significant uranium mineralization in the Otish Mountains area, amongst others.
