VANCOUVER, BC / CRWEPRESSRELEASE / July 29, 2015 / Kiska Metals Corporation (“Kiska” or the “Company”) (TSX-Venture: KSK) announces that Mr. George Ireland and Mr. John Kanellitsas, both representatives of Geologic Resource Partners (“GRP”), have resigned from the board of directors effective today. Kiska wishes to acknowledge and thank both George and John for their long standing support and contribution to the Company.
The resignations follow the sale of GRP’s entire shareholding of 28.6 million common shares of Kiska, representing approximately 25% of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares. Members of Kiska’s senior management team and board of directors purchased 9.2 million of the shares sold by GRP and the Company assisted GRP to place the remaining shares with strategic investors.
“This redistribution of a large block of Kiska shares was necessary due to a change in the business strategy of GRP. The transaction places the shares with investors who are committed to the Company’s success, and provides Kiska with a strong shareholder foundation going forward,” stated Kiska’s President Grant Ewing.
