Boyd Hardwicke to consult on BC propertiesadmin
Ted Drummond, Kingsman’s Chief Operating Officer, is pleased to announce the appointment of Boyd Hardwicke, P.Eng., a graduate of the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, B.C. in 1955, as a consultant to the Board of Directors.
As a student, Mr. Hardwicke worked at Granby’s Copper Mountain mine at Princeton. He became Chief Engineer at the Granby Phoenix Mine located in Greenwood British Columbia and then moved to Granisle Copper (a Granby subsidiary) located at Babine Lake, British Columbia, as Mine Superintendent. Mr. Hardwicke became Mine Manager of Granisle Copper and was later transferred back to The Granby Phoenix Mine as Mine Manager, a position he held for seven years until the mine closed. It should be noted that mineralization at Kingsman’s Pathfinder property, which is located less than 18 km northeast of the Phoenix mine open pit, bears some similarities to the Phoenix ore bodies.
The total production from the Phoenix mine Copper-Gold-Silver ore bodies, which were mined first by underground and later by open-pit methods, was approximately 520 million pounds copper, 911,000 ounces gold, and 5.8 million ounces silver (source: B.C.

The Board of Directors welcomes Mr. Harwicke’s appointment, and looks forward to utilizing his expertise in mining in the near future.
