Vancouver, February 21, 2022 - Ready Set Gold Corp. (CSE: RDY) (FSE: 0MZ) (OTC PINK: RDYFF) ("Ready Set Gold" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that Board of Directors has established a Strategic Advisory Committee and appointed Mark Smethurst, a director who has tendered his resignation from the Board of Directors effective February 17, 2021.
The Company has also entered into a Consulting Agreement with Bill Yeomans, P.Geo. to act as the Company's Qualified Person and provide consulting advice on the Company's projects. The Company has granted 250,000 stock options to Mr. Yeomans, at an exercise of $0.155 per share. The Options will be exercisable for a period of five years and will vest monthly for a period of one year.
The Company further announces that it will be divesting its remaining interest in the Emmons Peak Project.
"After the untimely passing of our VP of Exploration in the fall and my subsequent appointment in January, we've moved to rebuild our team of geologists. The first appointment of our new QP, Mr. Yeomans is a very positive step for us, and we are working to secure more appointments to round out the team. After I've had the opportunity to assess the status of the claims that were commonly referred to by the Company as Emmons Peak, it was prudent that we drop the remaining claims. I'm looking forward to communicating a renewed vision for our Northshore and Hemlo Eastern Flanks projects in the coming weeks and months. We are making quick progress and I expect to regularly communicate with shareholders our plans," CEO, Alex McAulay stated. "I would also really like to thank Mark Smethurst for his time served as a director as he assisted in navigating challenges after our VP passed. I'm looking forward to engaging with Mark in his capacity as a Strategic Advisor."
