At Hudbay Minerals, Mr. Bein led several regional and near-mine exploration programs in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Arizona. Mr. Bein also recently led an exploration team for Rock Tech Lithium that executed extensive exploration drilling and field exploration programs that enabled growth of mineral resources and discovery of several spodumene pegmatite prospects at Rock Tech’s Georgia Lake project.
“The addition of Amanuel is a significant development for the Company and further strengthens our management team,” said CEO of Collective Metals, Chris Huggins. “Through his prior experience, Amanuel will bring immeasurable value to our exploration work with the Princeton Project, Landings Lake Project and Whitemud Project.
