TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - April 11, 2016) - Metallum Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:MRV) ("Metallum") provides the following corporate update:

Appointment of Mr. Wade Dawe as Chief Executive Officer

The Company is pleased announce the appointment of Mr. Wade Dawe as Chief Executive Officer, effective April 15, 2016. Mr. Dawe has served as one of the Company's directors for approximately three years, and is an accomplished entrepreneur, financier and investor based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.

Mr. Robert Suttie, the Company's interim Chief Executive Officer, will remain with the Company in capacity of Chief Financial Officer, a role he has held for the last 9 years. The board would like to recognize Mr. Suttie's instrumental contribution to the Company during his tenure as interim CEO.

Change of Business
