LAKE TAHOE, NV, May 10, 2010 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- AmeriLithium (OTC Bulletin Board: AMEL; "AmeriLithium" or "the Company") is pleased to announce the strategic appointment of its fourth Advisory Board member, Nevada-based Robert Craig, P.E., who represents a career of 35+ years with ever-growing engineering and executive experience in the mining, energy, and Lithium industries, as well as an established personal network within the local Nevada Lithium and mining industry.
Over the years, Robert has proven his ability to understand and manage the attendant challenges of large scale projects, whether working as an engineer on the TransAlaska Pipeline Project, Prudhoe Bay oil fields, and for the State of Alaska, or serving as Environmental Engineer for the $200 million Fort Greely Garrison projects, or acting as Environmental Manager in charge of permitting and compliance on the 10,000 ton/day cyanide heap leach project at Firstgold Corp's Relief Canyon Mine in Nevada.
Moving on from his 20-year run as Vice President for Alaska-based Hyak Mining Company, Inc. (Kensington Project) - which included running economic analyses and feasibility studies on mining and development projects - Robert has served as President of Nevada Alaska Mining Co., Inc. since 2004. Based in Lovelock, NV, the company is actively engaged in exploration for minerals in Nevada and Utah; holds royalty interest on over 20,000 acres of claims under exploration; and has vended Lithium (and boron) properties to various Lithium exploration companies, including AmeriLithium.
Robert graduated as a Mining Engineer from the University of Alaska in 1972, and is a Registered Civil Engineer.
"Of course we were attracted to Robert's wealth of experience and expertise as an engineer and executive in the mining, energy, and Lithium industries," commented Matthew Worrall, CEO of AmeriLithium. "Having Robert on the Advisory Board will definitely round out our access to a core of key individuals with the backgrounds and insights necessary to execute proven sector and business strategies. But then there's the added bonus of his personal network. Robert is always around the three sites we already have in Nevada, making contact with the local drilling crews, his ear to the ground. Those types of connections and established relationships are invaluable to AmeriLithium becoming established as a major industry player."
