"Since our corporate restructuring, and last week's announcement to bring Oxbow Resources to the bulletin board, I believe our shareholders can see that we are building a strong foundation. From the onset, our goals have been to bring our flagship property, the Bristol Gold Project to fruition as skillfully and rapidly as possible, while creating a viable corporate structure. Mr. Laird is an essential part of making these company goals a reality. I am pleased to welcome him as our Vice President of Exploration," concluded Mr. Fong.
