VICTORIA, BC / ACCESSWIRE / May 17, 2019 / Erin Ventures Inc. [TSXV: EV] is pleased to announce the appointment of Dusan Podunavac, P. Geo., to its Board of Directors. Throughout his career, Mr. Podunavac has been active in all facets of geological exploration, mine development and public policy advice in both the private and public sectors. Since 2014, Dusan has served as Project Manager for Erin Ventures, overseeing its geological program at the Piskanja Boron Project.
Between 1988 and 2014, Mr. Podunavac held senior positions at the internationally acclaimed Geological Survey of Serbia, most notably as its Senior Geologist, then Technical Director, and ultimately as General Manager. In addition, Dusan served as Exploration Manager (Nonmetallic and Metallic Raw Materials) and Department Head - Mineral Resources Assessment, at the Geological Survey where he was responsible for geological, mineralogical, metallurgical, and technical studies and the coordination and management of technical teams for multiple tasks (mineral exploration, hydrology, environmental, mining engineering, and remediation) for a diverse set of mineral resources in both open pit and underground settings.
Specifically, Mr. Podunavac's expertise and duties at the Geological Survey included: management of the geological and engineering divisions within the institute, with supervision of technical teams of up to 250 professionals; team leader on mining feasibility studies; cash-flow analysis; international project-specific financing; and, the management/supervision of mining and environmental engineering, technical studies, mine planning, construction and remediation on multiple projects.
Along with his experience in the private sector, Mr. Podunavac has extensive experience consulting to the Serbian government and governments internationally. He has provided public policy advice in the areas of privatization of government-owned mining assets, along with all facets of mining regulations. Additionally, he has been called upon to provide technical evaluations to governments with respect to various mining operations and companies, as well as to perform environmental audits. As a result, Dusan has cultivated and maintains good working relationships with a variety of scientific researchers, policy managers, and government officials within Serbia and elsewhere.
"I believe that Dusan is a logical choice for our board," said Tim Daniels, CEO of Erin. "He is a geologist with extensive experience, both in the field and in management. He knows Piskanja intimately, as he has been involved with the project in various ways since 1997. Importantly, he is very well connected and respected within the local mining community and within the Ministry of Mining. And ultimately, he is a good man and is like-minded regarding how to best develop our project."
The appointment of Dusan Podunavac is subject to shareholder and TSXV approval.
On behalf of the Board of Directors,
Blake Fallis, General Manager
