He was the supervisor of the diamond drilling and drift development at the adjacent Golden Crown Mine, in addition to the supervision of an exploration program at the recent Belmont acquisition of the Pathfinder Property.
Laurence commented “I look forward joining the Belmont Board and returning to the prolific Greenwood mining camp as I strongly believe, along with Belmont management, that this area has significant potential for the discovery of deep seated copper gold porphyry deposits”.
