Resignation of a Director
On November 23, 2012, Bryan Wilson resigned as a Director of Canyon Copper Corp. (the Company), for personal reasons. There were no disagreements between Mr. Wilson and the Company regarding any matter relating to the Companys operations, policies or practices.
Appointment of a Director
On November 28, 2012, the Company has appointed John R. Kerr, P. Eng. Geologist, as a director to fill the vacancy created by Mr. Wilsons resignation. Mr. Kerr is currently a member of our advisory board.
Mr. Kerr graduated from the University of British Columbia in 1964 with a Bachelor of Applied Science (B.A.Sc) degree in Geological Engineering. He has participated in the mining industry continuously since graduation as an exploration geologist. His expertise is epithermal and sedex-hosted precious metal deposits in the southwest United States, strata controlled gold deposits and porphyry copper/gold/molybdenum deposits of the western Cordillera and VMS deposits in all areas of North America. Successful ventures include recognition and discovery of the Santa Fe gold mine, identification of the Calvada gold mine located on the northern boundary of the New Canyon property, and discovery of the Mindora gold/silver deposit, all located in Nevada. He is also credited with early identification of two VMS deposits at the Rambler Mine in Newfoundland and recognition of the Frasergold strata controlled gold deposit in British Columbia. Mr. Kerr has served as a director of numerous public companies and is currently a Director of Quaterra Resources (NYSE Amex: QMM, TSX.V: QTA) and Bravada Gold Corp (TSX-V:BVA).
During the early exploration of the Santa Fe and Calvada deposits (1973-1979), Mr Kerr familiarized himself with exploration endeavours on the Longshot Ridge copper skarn and the Copper Queen porphyry copper deposits on the New York Canyon property. His knowledge of these deposits will provide invaluable input to ongoing development.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
