Gregory has a Bachelor of Administration from Lakehead University and is a Certified Professional Accountant (?CPA?).

Michael Hepworth, President and CEO of Firesteel said; ?Given the international nature of our operations and the fact that we are set to begin production in the 4th quarter of 2018, we have been intent on building a competent management team with appropriate, international business and hands on gold mining experience.

About the Company

Firesteel is an exploration-stage junior mining company engaged in the acquisition and exploration of prospective precious and base metal properties in Canada and stable jurisdictions around the world. Firesteel is currently working to evolve from an exploration company to becoming a junior producer.

On April 7, 2017, Firesteel first announced the signing of heads of agreement with Nordic Mines AB to form a joint venture to operate and eventually acquire 100% of Nordic Mines Marknad, a wholly owned subsidiary of Nordic Mines AB. Nordic Mines Marknad owns 100% of Nordic Mines OY, the operator of the fully permitted and past producing Laiva Mine near Raahe in Finland.

Firesteel recently completed an updated Resource Estimate prepared in accordance with NI 43-101 guidelines and CIM standards (Firesteel Press release dated August 21, 2017).

The mineral resources presented here were estimated using a block model with a block size of 9 m by 9 m by 9 m sub-blocked to a minimum of 3 m by 3 m by 3 m using ID3 methods for grade estimation.

Disclosure: Companies typically rely on comprehensive feasibility reports on mineral reserve estimates to reduce the risks and uncertainties associated with a production decision.eports, historical production data and current engineering work completed or in process by Firesteel, the Company intends to move forward with the development of this asset.

The Company further cautions that it is not basing any production decision on a feasibility study of mineral reserves demonstrating economic and technical viability, and therefore there is a much greater risk of failure associated with its production decision. In addition, readers are cautioned that inferred mineral resources are considered too speculative geologically to have economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as mineral reserves.

Firesteel currently has one highly prospective property in British Colombia.

The Star property is currently operated under a Joint Venture agreement between Firesteel (49%) and Prosper Gold. (TSX-V: PGX) (51%).
