Revival Gold Inc. (TSXV: RVG, OTCQX: RVLGF) has appointed industry veteran John Meyer as the company’s Vice President, Engineering & Development.
Mr Meyer’s 30-year career in the gold business has included senior leadership roles in mine permitting and development, underground and open pit engineering as well as reclamation and mine closure. He has worked on some of the most high-profile gold projects in the Americas, including the Stibnite project in Idaho and the Fruta del Norte project in Ecuador.
Mr Meyer brings additional management depth and experience to Revival Gold having spent much of his career in senior and international project management positions leading multi-disciplinary teams with gold majors including Barrick Gold and Kinross Gold. Most recently he served as Vice President, Development, with Perpetua Resources. Mr Meyer holds a B.Sc. in Civil Engineering and a B.Sc. in Geophysics, both from the University of Western Ontario, Canada.
“We are thrilled to welcome John to Revival Gold’s leadership team. John’s outstanding technical credentials and recent relevant experience in Idaho will bolster Revival Gold’s capabilities and leadership as we advance towards the responsible re-development of the Beartrack-Arnett gold project,” said Hugh Agro, Revival Gold, President and CEO.
“2022 will be a pivotal year for Revival Gold as we accelerate optimization initiatives, permitting preparations and development plans for the potential restart of operations. John’s extensive engineering and operating experience, both internationally and in Idaho, is a terrific fit with our business.”
Mr Meyer said he was looking forward to helping lead the Beartrack-Arnett project towards development.
“The company is well on its way with a growing resource base, proven metallurgy, and considerable existing infrastructure. The project is one that can make a significant contribution to Idaho with minimal new development disturbance since much of the first phase operation is located on the previously developed Beartrack site,” he added.
Revival Gold Inc. is a growth-focused gold exploration and development company. The Company is advancing the Beartrack-Arnett Gold Project located in Idaho, USA.
Beartrack-Arnett is the largest past-producing gold mine in Idaho. A Preliminary Economic Assessment has been completed for a first phase restart of heap leach operations to produce 72,000 ounces of gold per year over an initial seven-year mine life at an AISC of $1,057 per ounce of gold.
Meanwhile, exploration continues, focused on expanding the current Indicated Mineral Resource of 36.6 million tonnes at 1.15 g/t gold containing 1.36 million ounces of gold and Inferred Mineral Resource of 47.1 million tonnes at 1.08 g/t gold containing 1.64 million ounces of gold. The mineralised trend at Beartrack extends for over five km and is open on strike and at depth. Mineralisation at Arnett is open in all directions.
