TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Feb. 4, 2014) - Rockcliff Resources Inc. ("Rockcliff" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:RCR) is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Clement Messere to its Board of Directors.
Clement Messere is the President and founder of Pro Distribution Services, one of the largest Dated Material Logistics companies in Canada. He is a partner in Triumph Asset Management and the owner/manager of a development and property firm. He has a degree in marketing from Ryerson University. Although Mr. Messere has never sat on a public company board, he is an active private investor with a significant portfolio. He recently made a private placement investment into Rockcliff and agreed to join the Rockcliff Board because he believes in the long-term value of copper as a commodity and believes that Rockcliff has the ability to build on the significant copper deposits that it has identified in Manitoba. Mr. Clement has been granted 200,000 stock options exercisable at $0.10 per share for five years in conjunction with his appointment to the Board. His appointment is subject to TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV") approval.
"We are very pleased to welcome Clement to Rockcliff's Board" said Ken Lapierre, President and CEO of the Company. "Clement's extensive business, marketing and investment experience will be a tremendous asset to the Company as we move towards earning our 70% interest in the Tower Property and expanding our high grade copper-rich deposits in Manitoba."
As a result of commitments to other public companies, Denis Arsenault has resigned as a director of Rockcliff to facilitate the appointment of Mr. Messere to the Board. Mr. Arsenault serves as a director of three Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") listed companies, one of which is co-listed on the New York Stock Exchange, and also serves as a senior officer of another TSX-listed company which is in the process of putting a mine into production. Mr. Arsenault has been with the Company since its listing on the TSXV in 2006. He served as the chairman of the Audit Committee. Management and the directors of the Company wish to thank Mr. Arsenault for his years of service and his valuable input to the Board of Directors and management.
