1911 Gold Appoints Gary O'Connor As Executive Chair

Vancouver, British Columbia, April 15, 2024 – 1911 Gold Corporation ("1911 Gold" or the "Company") (TSXV: AUMB; OTCBB: AUMBF) is pleased to announce the appointment of Gary O’Connor to the Board of Directors as Executive Chair with immediate effect. Mike Hoffman, the outgoing Independent Chair, will continue to serve as a Director of the Company and stand for re-election at the upcoming annual general meeting.

“On behalf of myself and the other Directors, I am pleased to extend a warm welcome to Gary as the latest member of the 1911 Gold Board and management team.” Shaun Heinrichs, President, and CEO stated, “Working closely with Gary these last several months has shown me the strength of his analytical and technical skills, as well as the leadership he provides as we identify and develop the key opportunities for 1911 Gold. The combination of Gary and the recently hired VP Exploration, Michele Della Libera, provide the right experience and background we need to transform the Rice Lake belt into a profitable, long term gold producer.”

“I am looking forward to continuing to work with the 1911 Gold team in executing on advancing and progressing the significant gold assets and infrastructure held within the Company. In the last several months we have identified significant resource and value upside and are now advancing the plan to realize this value for all our stakeholders”, commented Gary O’Connor. “Our initial focus has been the review and redevelopment of True North gold resources to be followed by the review of new resources within the True North mine footprint and the 100% owned Rice Lake greenstone gold belt.”   

Gary O'Connor has over 40 years of diverse experience as a mineral exploration and development professional in the management of successful resource projects as well as the evaluation and technical due diligence of large mineral exploration and development projects within various geologic settings and locations covering a variety of metals and minerals. Mr. O'Connor was recently CEO and President of Moneta Gold Inc. Previously he worked as Vice-President of Dundee Resources for 10 years, responsible for the technical due diligence of resource projects for investment purposes for the corporation and managed funds. In previous roles he worked as the Vice-President, Exploration of Gabriel Resources and European Goldfields in Romania, and as District Exploration Manager for Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold in Indonesia.  

Pursuant to the Company’s stock option plan, a total of 350,000 stock options have been issued to Gary O’Connor as well as an additional 200,000 stock options to Michele Della Libera and another 325,000 stock options to employees and consultants to the company. The options have an exercise price of $0.11 per common share, vest as to one-third immediately and one-third after the first and second anniversaries of the date of grant, and expire on April 15, 2029.

The Company will also issue a total of 79,545 deferred share units (“DSUs”) to three independent directors under the Company’s Deferred Share Unit plan. Each DSU entitles the holder to receive one share of the Company, or in certain circumstances a cash payment equal to the value of one share of the Company, at the time the holder ceases to be a director of the Company. Going forward, the Company intends to issue DSUs at the end of each quarter in lieu of cash for a portion of each director's fees.
