Pebble Creek Mining Ltd. is pleased to announce that the Company has engaged two prominent consultants in India. A chronic problem in India is obtaining timely approvals for mineral rights and various required permits from state and central government officials. These engagements address this problem.
Mr. Darshan Lal served on the staff of the President of India, 1970-1974, as Naval Aide de Camp. He subsequently resigned from the Navy as Lt. Commander and spent 34 years in strategic planning and corporate affairs with multinational corporations working in India. He has worked with GlaxoSmithKline, BASF and Monsanto. He has been a consultant to Dupont, Praxair, Dumex, Visit Britain, Betafence, Quixote Transport Systems and St. Gobain. He will advise the Company on corporate and governmental affairs.
Mr. D.S. Mehta obtained his M.Sc. in geology at University of Rajasthan. His early work was exploration in Nepal on behalf of the Birla group of companies before joining the Rajasthan Department of Mines and Geology (“DMG”) in 1969. DMG’s mandate is to foster and regulate mine development and mining in Rajasthan, one of India’s most productive mining states. Mr. Mehta became Director of DMG and retired from that office in 2001. From 2002 to 2008 he was Mining Advisor to the government of Uttarakhand state. He is currently based in Udaipur, Rajasthan as a consultant to the mineral industry. The Company has recently applied for 6,000 square kilometers of potash Reconnaissance Permits in Rajasthan and has engaged Mr. Mehta to advise on future work there.
