Global Mining Review,

Barkerville Gold Mines Ltd. has welcomed Sean Masse to its executive team as the Vice President of Operations.

Masse is a professional mining engineer who spent part of his youth in the Cariboo region of BC. He was formerly Mine Manager at New Gold's New Afton Mine and more recently Project Manager at Centerra Gold's Kemess project. He is highly experienced with the BC regulatory and mine management requirements, project planning, permitting, commissioning and operating of underground mines. Masse lives in Prince George, BC and will assume his new position in June 2019, subject to customary TSX Venture Exchange requirements.

As the Vice President of Operations, Masse will be responsible for advancing the Cariboo gold project and overseeing operations on Barkerville Mountain and at the QR mill. He will ensure all operations are run in an economic and sustainable manner, while maintaining the highest level health and safety practices.

François Vézina, Chief Operating Officer, will be stepping down at the end of the month of June due to increased workload on Osisko Gold Royalties Ltd projects. François will continue leading economic and technical studies for the Cariboo gold project.

Chris Lodder, Chief Executive Officer, commented: "On behalf of the management team, I want to thank François for the commitment and professionalism he has demonstrated during his tenure as Chief Operating Officer and wish him the very best in his new opportunity."
