July 15, 2021, Vancouver, British Columbia – Snowy Owl Gold Corp. (CSE: SNOW, Frankfurt 84L.F) ("Snowy Owl" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the appointment of Michael Rosatelli as a new independent member of its Board of Directors. Mr. Rosatelli is replacing Mr. Edward Ierfino, who has decided to retire from the Board to focus on his other business ventures. Mr. Rosatelli is an accomplished mineral exploration geologist, currently serving as Golden Valley Mines Ltd. and Val-d'Or Mining Corporation Vice-President Exploration. Mr. Rosatelli has worked as an exploration geologist for over 30 years in various positions with major and junior mining companies, including BHP Billiton (McVicar Minerals JV), Anglo-Gold, BandOre, and Kennecott. His experience covers a broad range of exploration activities from project inception through to the initial grassroots to advanced stages of project development. Mr. Rosatelli has been involved in or directed exploration programs over a diverse range of commodities, including precious and base metals, diamonds, iron ore and uranium deposits across Canada, Africa and South America. He holds a M.Sc. degree in Mineral Exploration from Queens University.
"I am pleased to welcome Michael to Snowy Owl Gold. His knowledge and experience in mining will be a valued addition to Snowy Owl's technical team," said David Patterson, Chairman of the Board of Directors. "Michael has proven to be a strong leader throughout his career and has gained extensive experience in Quebec. We are looking forward to working with Michael and are privileged to have such a talented professional joining our Board."
"I look forward to contributing to the Company's strategies as it continues to scale. I believe Snowy Owl has the solid foundation and the talent it needs to meet its growth objectives," said Michael Rosatelli.
Michael further stated, "Regarding the Golden Eagle Property, I have had an opportunity to review the work performed by Snowy Owl's technical team to date and, in particular, their in-depth analysis of the airborne magnetic data collected during the 2020 field season on Snowy Owl's 100% owned Golden Eagle property. This is important because the geophysical analysis has yielded a new interpretation of the property's geology, indicating that favourable greenstone belt geology may be more extensive than historically mapped. In June of this year, Snowy Owl's geological team uncovered sulphide-bearing, quartz-carbonate veining. These are strong indicators of hydrothermal activity and very important for precious and base metal mineralization."
Patterson added, "Additionally, I would like to thank Edward for his time and contributions to Snowy Owl. He has been a critical board member that added strategic input on capital markets and deep expertise in business management. We wish Edward the very best in his future endeavours."
The Company also announces that it has granted an aggregate of 500,000 stock options to certain directors, officers, employees and consultants of the Company, exercisable for a period of five years, at an exercise price of $0.135. The stock options are being granted pursuant to the terms of the Company's stock option plan and are subject to regulatory approval.
Snowy Owl would also like to announce that it has retained the services of Mr. Gary Posner, through 1407535 Ontario Limited, to provide ongoing marketing and other corporate advisory services to the Company in consideration for the issuance of 1,000,000 warrants, exercisable to acquire up to 1,000,000 common shares of the Company, at a price of $0.135, for a period of one year. No other compensation is payable to Mr. Posner, and the securities are subject to a statutory hold period of four months and one from their date of issue.
