Vancouver, BC, June 8, 2022 – NEWFOUNDLAND DISCOVERY CORP. (CSE: NEWD, OTC: NEWDF, FSE: M4K-FF) (“Newfoundland Discovery” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Jeremy Prinsen as President, Chief Executive Officer, and a Director of the Company.
Outgoing President & CEO, Blair Naughty, comments: “I have enjoyed leading Newfoundland Discovery where we successfully assembled several highly prospective properties in both Quebec and Newfoundland. Many of these properties have been held tightly by prospectors where they advanced them to the point now that they are ready to see an abundance of work done this season. We have spent a good amount of time sourcing through our network for a capable individual to take the reigns of the company and Jeremy Prinsen stood out as an ambitious, motivated, ethically driven, and well-connected young individual that possesses many qualities I’ve seen in successful leaders I’ve worked with and around during my career. He has committed his time and full energy and dedication to be a great CEO for our shareholders here. We just returned from a trip to Newfoundland where we toured all the properties, met with the vendors, and sat with consulting geologists for a thorough review of the entire portfolio. We’ve put plans in place for several upcoming work programs throughout the portfolio. It has been my pleasure to be part of building this company and, as a significant shareholder, I look forward to watching, supporting and mentoring Jeremy as he takes the baton and carries on running our race.”
