Both of these gentlemen played important roles in NexGen’s exploration, delineation, and development success of the Arrow deposit and the Rook I property in the southwest Athabasca, which makes a powerful fit for Standard as we approach our maiden drill program at the Davidson property. I’m very pleased with the additions to Standard’s technical team that now combines decades of concentrated experience with discovering high grade uranium mineralization in the southwest Athabasca, which is a key component for future success.
