Mike Ferguson, Gensource’s President & CEO, commented “With the appointment of Mr. Korchinski, Gensource continues the refocusing of the company and its Board that began in late 2013. Our goal is to bring to the Board of Directors the skills and expertise required to help the company execute its business plan – to bring the Lazlo Project to production. With Kerny’s proven experience in building successful businesses in Saskatchewan, Gensource will become stronger in its business focus, structure and governance. I am so pleased to have the opportunity to work with Kerny as we push to make the Lazlo Project the next producing facility in Saskatchewan”.
Additionally, the Company announces that Alan Cruickshank has resigned as a director with the Company. Alan has worked diligently for the Company, always seeking the best for its shareholders. We appreciate Alan’s work, and wish him well in his future endeavours.
Gensource is based in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and is focused on developing potash projects in Saskatchewan, but doing so with a strong link to the end-user market for potash. Gensource’s President & CEO, Mike Ferguson P.Eng., has assembled a management team with direct and specific experience in Saskatchewan potash development. Gensource’s Advisory Board comprises globally-recognized experts on the various aspects of potash drilling, mining and processing technologies and international potash and business development expertise and experience. Gensource believes its technical expertise will allow it to develop a smaller scale, quicker-to-market and much more easily funded project, with excellent economics, than those that have been contemplated to-date in the potash industry.
