TORONTO, Jan. 03, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Labrador Uranium Inc. (“LUR”, “Labrador Uranium”, or “the Company”) (CSE: LUR, OTCQB: LURAF, FRA: EI1) announces that effective January 1, 2023, Stephen Keith has stepped down from his role as Chief Executive Officer of the Company and Philip Williams, Executive Chairman has assumed the role of Interim Chief Executive Officer. LUR’s Board of Directors intends to commence a comprehensive search process to identify a permanent Chief Executive Officer.
Philip Williams, Executive Chairman, and Interim CEO of LUR commented, “On behalf of the Labrador Uranium team, I would like to thank Stephen for his contribution to the Company and wish him well in his future endeavours.”
Mr. Williams continued, “Although my role as CEO is on an interim basis, until the right candidate to replace Stephen is identified, I take the position enthusiastically recognizing the tremendous opportunity LUR has to both verify the historic uranium and vanadium mineral resources on the project as well as to potentially make new discoveries. This combination of historic in ground mineral resources with district scale exploration potential, in my mind, sets LUR apart from its peer group but is not currently fully appreciated by the market. Under Stephen’s leadership, LUR grew in a short period of time, from an idea to a listed company that attracted an experienced and talented technical team, all of whom remain in place, and executed on an ambitious 2022 field program. The Company is well funded for its 2023 exploration program which will build on the results from last year as well as leverage the tremendous amount of data-accumulated on the very large project area.”
