Great Bear Resources (GBR.V) has added Michael Kenyon to its board of directors. Kenyon could be seen as a mining veteran with over 4 decades of experience under his belt, and his career included involvements in several large M&A transactions in the gold mining space with stints at Canico Resource Corp, Cumberland Resources and Sutton Resources which were respectively sold to Vale, Agnico Eagle and Barrick Gold.

You can be sure Michael Kenyon won’t just accept any board position and although he is ‘just’ a director and not an officer, simply attaching his name to Great Bear lends the company a lot of credibility. It’s not every day a director with his experience joins the board of a pre-resource stage exploration company, and his addition is a clear positive as his input will be welcomed by Great Bear.

Disclosure: The author has a small long position in Great Bear Resources, Great Bear is a sponsor of the website.
