VANCOUVER, British Columbia, September 22, 2021–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Fancamp Exploration Ltd. ("Fancamp" or the "Corporation") (TSX Venture Exchange: FNC) is pleased to announce that Mr. Greg Ferron has been appointed to its Board of Directors (the "Board"), effective immediately. As previously announced, Mr. Ferron has replaced Mr. Paul Ankcorn, who has stepped down from the Board.
Mr. Ferron has 20 years of mining industry and capital markets experience, and is the former director and CEO of Treasury Metals Inc. Previously, he held various corporate finance, corporate development and investor relations roles, including Laramide Resources Ltd., Treasury Metals, TMX Group, and Scotiabank. Mr. Ferron has diverse M&A experience completing joint ventures, project acquisitions, asset sales and project divestitures, including Laramide's Westwater ISR project acquisition and Treasury's merger with the Goldlund Gold Project, creating one of Canada’s largest gold developers. He currently serves on the board of directors at Platinex Inc. and provides corporate development and advisory services to mining clients.
"We are pleased to have Mr. Ferron join our Board and look forward to his contributions," said Mr. Mark Billings, Chairman of the Board. "Drawing on his years of experience, Mr. Ferron will be a key player in helping Fancamp advance its strategic plan. I am confident he will be an outstanding director who makes the interests of our shareholders a priority."
"We would also like to thank Mr. Ankcorn for his exceptional service on our Board. Fancamp benefitted greatly from Mr. Ankcorn’s dedication and leadership, and it has been a privilege to work closely and serve alongside him," added Mr. Billings.
"I am delighted to join the Fancamp Board," said Mr. Ferron. "With their commitment to delivering shareholder value and growing the business through exploration properties, titanium technology and strategic alternatives, shareholders should be excited about Fancamp’s bright future.

Forward-looking information in this news release includes, but is not limited to, information and statements relating to the Corporation’s annual general meeting, and objectives, goals or future plans. There can be no assurance that forward-looking statements will prove to be accurate and actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from Fancamp’s expectations include, among others, political, economic, environmental and permitting risks, mining operational and development risks, litigation risks, regulatory restrictions, environmental and permitting restrictions and liabilities, the inability of Fancamp to raise capital or secure necessary financing in the future, as well as factors discussed in the section entitled "Risks and Uncertainties" in Fancamp’s management’s discussion and analysis of Fancamp’s financial statements for the period ended January 31, 2021. Although Fancamp has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially, there may be other factors that cause results not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended. Fancamp considers its assumptions to be reasonable based on information currently available, but there can be no assurance that such statements will prove to be accurate as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements.
