Metallic Minerals Corp. (formerly Monster Mining Corp.) Sept. 19 reported the appointment of Greg Johnson as CEO and chairman.
Prior to joining Metallic Minerals, Johnson held the position of president and CEO at Wellgreen Platinum and South American Silver, and was a co-founder and executive at Novagold Resources. He began his career with Placer Dome (now Barrick Gold), where he held various senior roles in domestic and international exploration.
Johnson was a co-recipient of the PDAC's Thayer Lindsay International Discovery Award, for his role in the discovery and advancement of the 40-million-ounce Donlin Gold deposit in Alaska. Additionally, he has been recognized for his work in sustainable development and community engagement and was awarded the Robert E. Leckie Award by the Yukon Government for excellence in environmental stewardship.
Metallic Minerals, which changed its name from Monster Mining earlier this month, owns the Keno-Lightning silver property in Yukon's historic Keno Hill silver district.
"Our Keno-Lightning property has seen historic high-grade silver production from at least four different deposits and adjoins Alexco Resource Corp's operations, which contain over 50 million ounces of high-grade silver in current indicated resources," Johnson said.
