KELOWNA, BC, Sept. 8, 2020 /CNW/ - FISSION URANIUM CORP. ("Fission" or "the Company") announced today a change in senior management and Board of Directors as the Company focuses on developing the world-class Triple R uranium deposit located in Canada's Athabasca Basin.

The Company has appointed Ross McElroy as the Chief Executive Officer of the Company. Mr. McElroy replaces Devinder Randhawa, whom has elected to retire from management and the Board of Directors of the Company and has moved to its Advisory Board.

Ross McElroy stated, "We are excited to further progress the world-class Triple R uranium project towards production. We are committed to the efficient and effective development of this one-of-a-kind deposit so that it may help ease the upcoming global uranium supply deficit. We would like to thank Dev for his leadership of the Company as he has overseen the discovery of one of the world's premier mineral deposits. On behalf of the Board of Directors and the entire Fission team, we wish Dev continued success in the future."

Dev Randhawa remarked, "I would sincerely like to thank the Board, Advisory Board, and management of Fission for the past 13 years.  As I retire, I am very pleased to have Ross McElroy be appointed as CEO.  The future of uranium is in large low cost, world-class deposits that are located in safe jurisdictions like Patterson Lake South, and Fission is poised to develop one of the premier uranium mines in the world."

Mr. McElroy is a professional geologist with over 30 years of experience in the mining industry. He is the winner of the PDAC 2014 Bill Dennis award for exploration success and the Northern Miner 'Mining Person of the Year 2013'. He has comprehensive experience with managing and advancing many types of mineral projects from grass roots exploration to feasibility and production. As President and Chief Geologist of Fission and its predecessor, he has overseen two major uranium deposit discoveries including the world-class Triple R deposit.

Board Changes

Fission has also strengthened the governance of its Board of Directors with the appointment of Darian Yip as its independent Chairman. Mr. Yip has over 18 years of experience in the financial services industry and has been focused on the metals and mining sector for the past 13 years. In 2014, he co-founded and was a partner and Managing Director for a Canadian, publicly-listed investment bank's operations in Asia and was responsible for setting up their Beijing and Hong Kong offices.
