Dunnedin Ventures Inc. (TSXV:DVI) announced management changes to strengthen its diamond focus, and receipt of permits supportive of exploration work through 2017 – 2018.

As quoted in the press release:

The Company announces the appointment of Ms. Claudia Tornquist and Mr. Chad Ulansky to the Company’s Board of Directors, and the movement of Mr. Patrick McAndless and Dr. Gilles Arseneau to the Company’s Technical Advisory Board.

Ms. Tornquist has been a Technical Advisor to Dunnedin since 2015, and was formerly a General Manager at Rio Tinto working extensively with Rio Tinto’s diamond mines and development projects in Canada and Australia.  She also worked as Executive VP Business Development for the royalty company Sandstorm Gold Ltd., financing junior mining companies with stream finance, equity and debt, and is currently also on the Board of Kennady Diamonds Inc.  Ms. Tornquist holds Masters degrees in Engineering and Business Administration.

Mr. Chad Ulansky, a professional geologist, is currently President and CEO of Metalex Ventures Ltd. and Cantex Mine Development Corp., as well as serving as director of several public and private mineral exploration companies.  Mr. Ulansky holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Geology from the University of Cape Town and has diamond exploration experience that includes the original Ekati diamond discovery and has since spanned fifteen countries on four continents.  Mr. Ulansky, together with Dunnedin’s advisor Dr. Charles Fipke, guided Dunnedin’s till sampling program in 2015, results of which are expected in the near future.

The Company also reports it has received a positive vote from the Chesterfield Inlet Community Lands and Resource Committee (CLARC) for its multi-year diamond exploration program. The positive endorsement of Dunnedin’s exploration plan is contingent upon 1) Dunnedin integrating community knowledge into its work in order to minimize impacts upon wildlife, and 2) Dunnedin providing assistance to the Kivalliq Inuit Association (the “KIA”) with cleanup of the abandoned Shear Minerals exploration camp at Josephine Lake.  While not on the Kahuna project claims, the camp is a concern for many local residents and Dunnedin has formally offered assistance with the KIA’s upcoming cleanup efforts.  Such assistance is expected to take the form of transportation of people and equipment to and from the camp while the KIA remediates the site, during Dunnedin’s upcoming field program.
