Appointment of Jerry Aiken to Passport Potash Board of Directors and Resignation of Ali Rahimtula
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA / TheNewswire / FEB 27, 2015 / Passport Potash Inc. ("Passport" or the "Company") (TSX.V: PPI)(OTC PINK: PPRTF) is pleased to announce that Jerry Aiken has been appointed to its board of directors. Mr. Aiken previously served as a director from early 2012 until the Company decreased the size of its board to five members in early 2014.
As previously reported, Mr. Aiken has more than 44 years of experience in mineral exploration involving base metals, precious metals, and industrial minerals. He has been involved in project generation, geologic mapping, geochemical evaluation, drill program supervision, and regional program management throughout the western United States, Canada, Mexico, South America and parts of Europe.
Since 2006, Mr. Aiken has been working as a consulting geologist involved in the evaluation of mineral properties and the writing and reviewing of NI 43-101 technical reports and PFS/FS technical reports. Prior to beginning work as a consulting geologist, Mr. Aiken worked for 29 years for US Borax (Rio Tinto Exploration) ("Borax") in Tucson, Arizona and Valencia, California. Before focusing his career in Industrial Minerals, he worked for more than five years for ASARCO Exploration, in Spokane, Washington, concentrating on base and precious metals from 1970 to 1976. Mr. Aiken has conducted and implemented exploration programs for borates, potash, lithium and other industrial minerals.
A review of Mr. Aiken's potash experience, beginning in the mid-1970s, shows that he has evaluated several potash projects and mines located in the Carlsbad district, New Mexico, and the Paradox Basin, Utah. His experience in that regard resulted in his evaluating the brine potential in the Paradox Basin.
Subsequent to his work in the Paradox Basin Mr. Aiken evaluated potash projects in the South American Alta Plano/Puna and a number of brine projects for potash and other industrial minerals. In addition to his potash evaluation, several 'hard rock' projects were evaluated by Mr. Aiken in both South America, (Argentina) and North America (both in the US and Canada).
Mr. Aiken graduated in 1966 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Geology from Western Michigan University. He also completed coursework in the Masters Program in Exploration Geology from the University of Idaho. Mr. Aiken is a Registered Professional Geologist in the State of Washington and a Registered Member of SME.
