"We are delighted to have John join Asher as a director and as our new
Chairman during our early growth stage" commented Richard Buzbuzian, President

firstly begins with his Nevada expertise regarding the Sleeper project near
Winnemocka that was sold to Paramount Gold and Silver Corp. This is in
addition to the $550M Queenston Mining Inc. sale to Osisko Mining Corporation.
John, with his international mining network will be a great asset to Asher as
we pursue our own business strategy of developing a North American precious
