Chris has enjoyed key roles in the reconnaissance and initial discoveries of the Malku Khota silver deposit in Bolivia (370 Moz Ag), the San Jose silver and gold mine in Oaxaca, Mexico (84 Moz Ag equivalent), and the Zuun Mod copper/moly deposit in Mongolia (273 M lbs Mo/ 330 M lb Cu). Recently, he served as a senior executive of First Mining Gold Corp, as the company built a largely indicated gold resource of 12 Moz of gold in Eastern Canada through a series of acquisitions of private and TSX listed companies.

Jose Mario Branco, Geologist, Vice President Exploration

Mr. Branco is a senior geologist with over 38 years of experience. He is the managing partner of Geologia e Geotecnia Consultores, a boutique consulting firm specializing in mineral exploration based in Portugal. Prior to that, Mr. Branco was the Regional Exploration Manager, Europe for Lundin Mining overseeing Lundin Mining projects in Iberia and Europe.

Catalin Kilofliski, CEO stated: ” Today marks an important milestone for our Company, as we have significantly strengthened our senior management and leadership team. Goldplay was created approximately one year ago with a strategy of delivering specific commodity and geographic exposure and successes for our investors. Despite the current market environment, today’s appointments should enable the Company to begin delivering on that promise. The Company’s Chairman, Deepak Malhotra, along with the newly appointed President Chris Osterman and VP Exploration Jose Mario Branco, together with myself, have recently completed a trip to Portugal with a goal to define, broaden and advance our strategy in Europe. Given the urgent need for sustainable resources produced within the European boundaries, we see ahead of us, a very feasible opportunity unfolding that will be conducive to successfully de-risking and advancing mining projects to production in the European Union. With a Portuguese based VP Exploration, a CEO born and raised in Europe, a President with important European connections, a Chairman that has commissioned several European mining projects into production, and a portfolio of several past producing gold and copper projects held in Portugal, Goldplay is well positioned to establish a strategically important presence in the evolving European resource development industry.”
