Vancouver, Canada – June 23, 2020 – Canarc Resource Corp. (TSX: CCM, OTC-QB: CRCUF, Frankfurt: CAN) announces the appointment of Mr. Troy Gill, MAIG., to the position of Vice President, Exploration, effective immediately. Mr. Gill is a geologist with extensive exploration experience and a successful track record of discoveries, including 15 years with Rio Tinto where he twice received the Rio Tinto Discovery Award.
Scott Eldridge, Canarc’s CEO stated: “It is a pleasure to welcome Mr. Gill to our Canarc management team. We look forward to working with Troy to create value for shareholders through both our exploration and acquisition strategies. Canarc plans to carry out two drill programs on our projects in Nunavut and British Columbia over the next three months. We thank outgoing VP Exploration Dr. Jacob Margolis for his contributions and wish him all the best.”
Mr. Gill graduated with a B.Sc. degree in Geology from the University of Wollongong, NSW, Australia in 1993. He has 27 years of mining and mineral exploration experience, more than half with Rio Tinto, searching for a wide range of commodities in a variety of geological settings, including gold, copper, nickel, diamonds, coal and iron ore.
His greatest exploration success came with the grassroots discovery of the Caliwingina Channel Iron Deposit in the Pilbara region of Western Australia, that grew to become a resource of nearly one billion tonnes of iron ore. After leaving Rio Tinto, Troy has enjoyed success as Exploration Manager with Sanatana Resources Inc. discovering the diamondiferous Dharma kimberlite in the Sahtu region, NWT, Canada.
