Commenting on his appointment, Stakiw said, "I look forward to joining Element 29 and working with the Board and the strong technical team to maximize the potential of the Company's high-grade copper projects in Peru in the interest of all stakeholders. With 2022 shaping up as a year of significant milestones at both Elida and Flor de Cobre, I see good opportunities to enhance the Company's market profile and valuation."

Element 29 Resources expects to make significant progress on both of its advanced copper projects in Peru in 2022. The company is currently drilling at its flagship Flor de Cobre copper project where its goal is to validate the historical resource estimate of 57.4 MT of 0.67% copper and expand the resource at depth to then publish a NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate later in the year. At the Elida copper project, the company recenlty completed Phase I drilling, with all seven holes showing high grades of copper over long intervals of mineralization, allowing Element 29 to move forrward in publishing an initial resource estimate in 2022. Both projects shows tremendous opportunity to be a large-scale, high-grade copper deposits, are at low elevation, near infrastructure and have strong community support. So lots of news to come in 2022.
