UrbanGold Appoints Mathieu Stephens as Vice President of Exploration

OTTAWA, Jan. 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- UrbanGold Minerals Inc. ("UrbanGold" or the "Company” | TSXV: UGM) is pleased to announce the appointment of Mathieu Stephens, P. Geo to the position of Vice President, Exploration.

Mr. Stephens is a professional geologist with over 15 years of exploration and management experience, having worked on numerous projects within Canada and in a wide range of commodities. Mr. Stephens is a graduate of the University of Quebec in Montreal and is a registered professional geologist with the Ordre des géologues du Québec.

Prior to joining UrbanGold, Mr. Stephens led the exploration team at Beaufield Resources Inc prior to its successful acquisition by Osisko Mining.

With his knowledge of Quebec’s geology, Mathieu Stephens will be a key contributor to UrbanGold’s exploration success and financial strength. His qualifications for the position are:

  • University of Quebec in Montreal - 1999 - B.Sc Geology
  • École des Haute Études Commerciales Montreal - 2001 - Graduate Studies in Business Management
  • Canadian Securities Institute - 2005 - Canadian Securities Course
  • Canaccord Genuity - 2003 to 2008 - Manager and Business Administration
  • Beaufield Resources - 2008 to 2018 – Geologist and Vice President Exploration

“UrbanGold is delighted to be welcoming a person of Mathieu's calibre to the role of VP Exploration. With a Quebec based exploration focus, Mathieu’s professional knowledge and enthusiasm is a key to the future of UrbanGold,” said Trevor Richardson, CEO of UrbanGold.

Update on Troilus

Prior to completing its IPO, UrbanGold undertook a preliminary drill program on its 100% owned Troilus property in order to test specific electromagnetic anomalies located near known gold and base metal occurrences. The small program consisted of 4 holes totalling 471 metres. All four holes intersected disseminated sulphides of no more than 10%, often associated with anomalous copper and zinc assay values. A initial analysis of the results indicates that the geophysical anomalies have been explained by the drilling. The Corporation’s geologists will evaluate the next steps for the property while concentrating on its material property, the Monaco property.

Qualified Person

Claude Larouche, B.Sc. Eng., M. Sc. Geol., P. Eng (OIQ), is the “Qualified Person” as defined by National Instrument 43-101 who has approved the disclosure provided above in relation to the exploration results on the Company’s Troilus property. Mr. Larouche is independent of the Company.

About UrbanGold
