Temas Resources Appoints David Caldwell as Chief Operating Officer

July 2, 2024, Vancouver, B.C. – Temas Resources Corp. (“Temas” or the “Company”) [CSE: TMAS; OTCQB: TMASF] is pleased to announce that David Caldwell has been appointed to the newly created role of Chief Operating Officer effective immediately.

Mr. Caldwell brings over 35 years of global mining experience across a wide range of projects ranging from grass roots generative development through all aspects of feasibility, permitting and the asset build-out process. Mr. Caldwell most recently served as Co-Founder, Director and Chief Innovation and Sustainability Officer for Pinnacle Iron and Steel/Trinidad Tobago Iron Steel Co. where he oversaw ESG initiatives for the steel mill’s restart, evaluated innovative methods to lower GHG emissions, and transform waste into revenue streams, and actively assessed raw material sources in Canada, South Africa, Scandinavia and Mexico to position the plant as a leading site for green steel production. He continues to actively evaluate various metallurgical optimizations for processing vanadium, titanium and iron bearing feedstocks to recover valuable metals, oxides and chemical products from the stream.

Prior to that role Mr. Caldwell spent over 14 years at BlackRock metals as Co-Founder, Director and VP Technical Services where he identified Quebec’s Lac Dore layered complex in 2007 as having strong potential to host a polymetallic deposit with world class tonnage and strong grades in three metals (Fe/Ti/V), and established a full feasibility for a $1.3B construction project with the best vanadium grades of any North American deposit in this critical metal along with excellent titanium and high purity iron credits.

“I am thrilled to announce David as our new Chief Operating Officer. David’s role will be an important part of our leadership team and his wealth of experience across all stages of development will prove invaluable as we move our Quebec-based titanium dioxide projects forward” said Tim Fernback, CEO of Temas Resources. “We are incredibly fortunate to have David, one of North America’s foremost experts on Iron-Titanium-Vanadium assets, having previously worked in Quebec and taking the helm of our exploration activities.”

Mr. Caldwell also held previous senior operating roles with Golden Phoenix Minerals, Nevada Pacific Gold, Santa Fe Pacific Gold and Gold Fields Mining Company among many others during his career.

“I look forward to helping Tim and the Temas leadership team to drive our strategic priorities forward and to expand on the existing work that has already been accomplished by the Temas team.  Interdisciplinary team building becomes increasingly necessary through the project exploration and development cycle and is squarely in my wheelhouse, so the timing is perfect for Temas to leverage my decade-long iron titanium and vanadium experience in Quebec to build value for our shareholders” said Mr. Caldwell.

Mr. Caldwell holds B.Sc. degrees in both Geology and Geophysics from the University of Minnesota Institute of Technology and a M.Sc. in Geochemistry from the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology.
