Toronto, Ontario, January 23, 2018 – GreenBank Capital Inc (CSE: GBC and OTCMKTS: GRNBF and FRA: 2TL) ("GreenBank or the Company") announces that its affiliate portfolio company Ubique Minerals Limited (“Ubique”) has appointed Gerald Harper as CEO and director.
Gerald Harper, Ph.D., P.Geo.(ON.) is President of Gamah International Limited, a mineral industry consulting firm which is well known for its research and databases on mineral industry financings. He has been a Director of several private and public exploration and mining companies including NWM Mining Corporation, African Metals Corporation, Mustang Minerals Corp, and Aurania Resources Ltd. He was President of the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada from 1998 to 2000 and still assists the Association on several committees. Previously he was Senior Vice President of Exploration for Western Prospector Group Ltd, where he supervised the acquisition, development and sale of the Gurvanbulag uranium mine in Mongolia. He was also Chairman and President of the Mineral Industry Safety Association of Mongolia. Dr Harper has worked for several major international mining companies, where he managed exploration activities, and developed and managed operating mines. His discoveries include the Current Lake Platinum deposit (>700,000 ozs) and the Mayville nickel copper deposit.
Paul Cullingham co-founder and previous CEO of Ubique has been appointed Vice Chairman of Ubique focusing on corporate development and acquisitions.
Ubique is a zinc exploration company which owns 108 claims located in the Daniel’s Harbour area in Newfoundland, Canada, covering 27 sq kms, of which 100 claims are contiguous. The Ubique claims comprise three zones, namely P Zone, Cobo’s Pond and Tilt Pond. The P Zone is where Ubique completed its 2017 drilling program, the highlight of which was a true width intersection of 13.6% Zinc over 39.9ft including 17.43% Zinc over 28.2 ft. Ubique management believes that the Cobo’s Pond claims are strategically significant as they could potentially contain the extension to the mineralized horizon hosting the high-grade zinc intercepts from the 2017 drilling program. The Tilt Pond claims cover a southern mineral trend adjacent to previous drilling completed by Teck Exploration in 1990 on the adjacent Black Duck and Trapper claims (Newfoundland and Labrador Department of Mines, Geofiles Metadata Search). Ubique’s claims are around the former Daniel’s Harbour zinc mine situated approximately 10 km northeast of the town of Daniel’s Harbour on the west coast of Newfoundland. Approximately 7,000,000 tonnes averaging 7.8% zinc have been mined from the Daniel’s Harbour mine (Wardle, R.J. (2000) Mineral Commodities of Newfoundland and Labrador - Zinc and Lead; Government of Newfoundland and Labrador, Geological Survey, Mineral Commodities Series Number 1, 12 pages).
