VANCOUVER, April 5, 2018 - Freeport Resources Inc.
(TSX-V: FRI) ("Freeport") is pleased to announce appointment of Martin MacKinnon MBA as Director. Appointed CFO in 2012, MacKinnon has over 30 years experience in developing new strategic corporate directions. With a broad background in financing, Martin is also a well-known lecturer in finance, residing in Halifax, NS. He specializes in new ventures (business start-ups, funding, performance improvements) and high growth business. He replaces outgoing Director, Tracy Clark LL.B., who stepped down after a 20 year tenure. Freeport thanks Tracy for her long-term efforts and wishes her success in all her future endeavours.
We are deeply saddened to report the passing of matriarch, Edith I.V. Clark, who met William George Clark, Freeport founder, at the Giant Gold Mine in Yellowknife, NWT, in the 1950's. Originally from Vienna, Austria, Edith was an adventurer, a published author, actress, talented artist, musician, teacher, and most of all, a dedicated mother. 'Mutti' was a free spirit who lived life creatively, with an unextinguishable joie de vivre even in times of great hardship. A Celebration of Life will be held on her birthday, April 8. Friends wishing to attend may contact us for details.
Freeport also acknowledges the recent sudden passing of Zenaida Manalo, friend and past CFO. Zeny's sunny, frank disposition was a cornerstone in our daily operations. She is missed.
Freeport is a Canadian junior exploration company with a diverse portfolio of properties -- the Red Rose Mine (a past producer of tungsten-gold-copper), Spanish Mountain Gold (adjacent to a proposed open-pit gold mine), and the Q (a large, well-known fluorspar deposit), all located in British Columbia.
