2008-12-08 08:30 ET - News Release
SPARKS, Nev., Dec. 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Golden Phoenix Minerals, Inc. is pleased to announce the appointment of Thomas Klein, an executive from the capital markets industry. Mr. Klein fills the Board seat recently vacated by Ronald Parratt. Mr. Parratt stepped down from the Board owing to the increased professional demands of his public mining company, of which he is CEO.
Mr. Klein is a Tier One capital markets advisor having specialized in high net worth corporate and trust accounts for a premier Canadian bank. Additionally, Mr. Klein advises to resource based small cap companies, assisting in all aspects of creative funding and restructuring. Mr. Klein has recently co-founded MI3 Capital, which is focused on investing in the resource sector, specifically those companies that are in or near production.
David A. Caldwell, CEO of Golden Phoenix, welcomed Mr. Klein, stating, "Tom's experience with mining and finance compliment the talents of our other Canadian director, Roland Vetter. I am confident Tom will ably fill the seat held by Ron Parratt, who served this Company for many years with great wisdom and energy."
Mr. Caldwell continued, "Initially, Tom will guide us in assessing several unsolicited offers of investment, which have recently come to light, as well as advise us on our financing needs and solutions over the coming months. I expect his leadership to prove invaluable as we seek to convert the growing interest in our well developed mineral assets into a viable funding program."
