Mr. Terrence Byberg has stepped down as Interim Chairman to focus on the growing demands in his continuing role as Stratabound’s Executive Vice President, a position he has held since October 2017, as the Company’s plans have also considerably continued to grow and develop.

The Board of Directors stated, “We are very grateful to Mr. Byberg for his service as Interim Chairman during a period of significant positive change in the Company’s fortunes over the past year, particularly as we have navigated through the COVID 19 pandemic. We are also very pleased that Mr. Ahmed has agreed to accept the position as Chairman in his place. The respect and confidence he commands in the financial communities in Canada and particularly the United States has been key in the recent successes the Company has realized in its market awareness and financing plans.”
Mr. Hashim Ahmed, in-coming Chairman of the Board stated, “We have excellent assets with great potential and a fine team here at Stratabound to develop them. I look forward to working with the Board, the management team and our investors as Chairman of Stratabound in unlocking the full value of our North American assets, taking advantage of our team strengths in seeking every opportunity to build shareholder value beyond early stage exploration, and developing the Company towards production decisions and beyond.”
