An experienced hand in the Quebec mining scene has been tapped to take on the Vice President of Exploration role.

“We are very pleased to welcome Antoine Fournier to the Enforcer team,” said Steve Roebuck, President and CEO of Enforcer gold Corp. “Antoine is a highly skilled geologist and mining executive with a diverse background in exploration in northern Ontario and Quebec. He is particularly experienced in the Abitibi greenstone belt and will be a key asset in directing Enforcer’s future property acquisitions and exploration programs.”

Fournier has over 25 years’ exploration experience for precious and rare metals, industrial minerals and diamonds and corporate management experience with junior mining exploration companies. Most recently he oversaw the restructuring of Big North Graphite to CobalTech Mining and was part of management and the board until CobalTech’s subsequent takeover in December of last year by First Cobalt.

“Our goal is to build the company’s property portfolio and become a prominent and highly successful explorer in the Abitibi,”said Roebuck in a company press release, “and Antoine has the skills to facilitate this path.”

From 2014 to 2016, Antoine was chief geologist with Monarques Gold and played an instrumental role in redefining the company’s exploration activities and acquisition of its exploration assets in the Abitibi greenstone belt. Prior to Monarques, Antoine was chief geologist for Standard Graphite  where he assisted in the restructuring and acquisition of a graphite and gold property portfolio in Québec and was responsible for all exploration activities.

In 2005 he assisted in the spin-off and creation of Threegold Resources and through 2012 was responsible for the acquisition of exploration assets, financings and exploration activities as part of management and board.

Antoine Fournier holds a BSc in Geology from Concordia University and an MSc in Economic Geology from McGill University, where he focused on the rare earth elements associated with the St-Honoré carbonatite in Quebec. He is a professional geologist registered with Ordre des géologues du Québec.

Enforcer Gold Corp is earning a 100% interest in the Montalembert Gold Project from Globex Mining Enterprises Inc. The 7,300-hectare property is located 125 kilometres west of Chibougamau in Quebec’s prolific Abitibi greenstone belt.
