Molycor Adds Experts to Board and Management

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 18, 2011) - Edward Lee, President of Molycor Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:MOR)(PINK SHEETS:MLYFF)(FRANKFURT:M1V) ("Molycor" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the addition of Robert Brown to the Board of Directors and the appointment of James Sever to the position of Chief Operating Officer of the Company.

Robert Brown has been added to the Board of Directors for the Company and brings with him over fifty years of industry experience in both ferrous and non-ferrous materials that includes twenty years in the technical management areas of light metal foundries and reduction plants. Mr. Brown has consulted to major international magnesium companies to assist in evaluation, planning, design, marketing and trouble shooting new operations. He has held various positions throughout the many stages and departments of magnesium production and operations.

Mr. Brown is the publisher of "Magnesium Monthly Review" since 1971 and a contributing editor and columnist for "Light Metal Age" and "Australian Journal of Mining" with over twenty five publications. He has served as Executive Secretary for the International Magnesium Association (IMA) and participated in world panels.

James Sever has been appointed to the Management Team as the Chief Operating Officer. He is president of Alpha Omega Engineering Inc. of Spokane, Washington, with over thirty years' experience in non-ferrous metals, chemical, industrial and operational management. For nine years he was employed by Alcoa at their Northwest Alloys Inc. Magnesium plant located at Addy, Washington. As Technical Operations Manager he was part of the senior management team.

Mr. Sever's accomplishments include:

  • Implementation of new technology on a plant wide basis;
  • Participation in the start-up of a major alumina refinery as part of the technical management team;
  • Attained record safety performance in every department managed;
  • By focusing on simplifying process operation he was able to significantly reduce maintenance costs;
  • Designed a proprietary seal for the electrical connection on a commercial vacuum furnace;
  • Operating a world wide consultancy focused on safe effective reduction operation and development in the light metals industry.

During his tenure at Alcoa's Northwest Alloys Mr. Sever:

  • Stabilized process operations by revising the process control scheme and gaining consistency in key raw materials;
  • Implemented a technical oversight team that captured and incorporated the practical knowledge base for the plant workers while maintaining continuity and consistency between shifts;
  • Revised the management metric for each production department's performance which eliminated interdepartmental rivalry;
  • Applied "SIPOC" (a model based on Suppliers, Inputs, Process, Outputs and Customers) a tool used in a 6 sigma process control, Statistical Process Control and Evolutionary Operation analysis system to incrementally improve production operation.

These activities were enabled by increasing the power available to the reduction furnaces. Together they culminated in production increasing more than two times without a major capital expansion of the plant.

Both these gentlemen bring with them decades of experience to Molycor, beneficial to the development of the Tami – Mosi Magnesium Project.
