TORONTO, June 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Cava Resources Inc. (“Cava” or the “Company”) (TSX Venture:CVA) announces that it is planning to change its name to Gold Rush Cariboo Corp. The new name should better reflect the Company’s gold production business in the Cariboo region of British Columbia. The name change and a new trading symbol are subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
In addition, the Company is pleased to announce the appointment of Conan Taylor, LLB. as a director and the new President of the Company replacing Brian Murray who will remain as a director of the Company. In connection with these changes, James Decker, a long serving director of Cava has agreed to resign from the Board of Directors with much appreciation for his past contributions.
Conan Taylor holds a Law degree from Queens University and has been a member of the Alberta Law Society since 1997. He practiced at a major law firm until 2002 at which time he formed his own law firm, Taylor Janis LLP with offices in both Calgary & Edmonton. Mr. Taylor will work from both the Toronto office and his office in Edmonton.
Mr. Taylor commented: “I am excited to take on an active management role as we commence operations at our Horseshoe Bend property. With the recent purchase of Specialized Gold Processing Equipment, we are ready to begin work to recover gold from the sediment hosted vein deposits from which significant gold quantities have been identified in the past. The historic production in this region and the recent exploration success by neighbouring Barkerville Gold Mines Ltd. and Spanish Mountain Gold Ltd. confirm the presence of economic gold deposits in this region.”
The Company has also announced that it has granted 2.7 million stock options to certain officers, directors and consultants. The options have a term of 3 years and are exercisable at a price of $0.22.
