Tempe, Arizona, – February 18, 2015 – Star Mountain Resources Inc. (“SMRS” or the “Company”) (OTCQB:SMRS) is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Mark Osterberg as its new President and Chief Operating Officer effective March 1st 2015. Mr. Osterberg is a 30 year veteran of the mining industry with wide-ranging expertise and an accomplished track record.
Dr. Osterberg commented on his new position, “When Star Mountain first brought me on as a consulting geologist, I was very excited. Looking at the historical data, I saw the potential of the Chopar project, and knowing the rest of the management team, I knew there was a level of financial know-how on hand that many juniors aren’t fortunate enough to possess. So when they asked me if I’d come on to run the day to day operations it didn’t take me too long to give them my answer…a resounding yes.”
CEO Joseph Marchal commented “Having Mark’s geological expertise on board full time is such a blessing for the company. Mark’s been in the mining business for over 30 years he knows what works and what doesn’t. Mark spent time working for the world’s largest mining company BHP Billiton, and he also helps educate up and coming mining professionals through the Mining Institute. Most importantly it lets me focus on the financial end, knowing that the operations are in good hands.”
Osterberg commented on Star Mountain’s immediate future, “Once I come on full time March 1st, we’re going to get to work on the Chopar project, we’re also going to begin looking at a few other opportunities to explore in conjunction with Chopar and hopefully add value by diversifying our interests.” Dr. Osterberg further noted “What we really want to bring our investors is a level of transparency never before seen in the junior mining industry. So if you’re interested in seeing how a junior miner goes from testing to drilling and all the steps in between I highly recommend you begin following us on Social Media and subscribe to our You Tube channel. We’re going to be giving investors a behind the scenes look at the junior mining process through a new video series set to launch shortly after we commence operations.”
