Canarc Appoints General Manager for El Compas Gold-Silver Mine
Vancouver, Canada – January 11, 2016 – Canarc Resource Corp. (“Canarc” or “Company”) (TSX: CCM, OTC-BB: CRCUF, Frankfurt: CAN) is pleased to announce that it has appointed Mr. Alfonso Canseco as Interim General Manager for Canarc’s fully permitted El Compas Gold-Silver Mine (“El Compas”) in Zacatecas, Mexico, effective immediately. Based in our Zacatecas office, Mr. Canseco will be responsible for directing our efforts to bring the El Compas mine into production in 2016.
Mr. Canseco is a professional mining engineer with over 38 years of experience in mine management and mining operations. Between 2006 and 2014, Mr Canseco was the general manager at the La Negra Mine in Queretaro State, Mexico. During that time he was instrumental in expanding La Negra, from 800 into a 3,300 tonne per day, low cost mining operation using only the cash flow generated from operations. Mr Canseco’s career includes several other mine management positions at mining projects in Jalisco, Guerero, Queretaro and Zacatecas states in Mexico as well as engineering positions with IMMSA and Penoles.
The Company is anticipating to release this month the results of an NI 43-101 technical report including a preliminary economic assessment to bring the El Compas mine in production.
Mr. Catalin Chiloflischi, Canarc’s CEO, stated:
“Todays appointment of an experienced Mexican General Manager for the El Compas mine is the latest step for Canarc as we transition the company into a gold-silver producer. Mr. Canseco’s depth of experience and track record provides us with additional leadership and mine operating experience in Mexico. Mr. Canseco represents a cornerstone addition to our growing management team.”
