Fire River Gold Corp. [TSXV: FAU | OTCQX: FVGCF | FSE: FWR]  announced that it has appointed R. David Russell, the Company\’s Non-Executive Chairman, as Interim President and CEO while the Company finalizes its review process and discussions with potential CEO candidates.


 


Mr. Russell will assume the full responsibilities of a chief executive officer until such time as a permanent president and CEO is recruited. Mr. Russell has over 35 years\’ experience in the mining industry including a variety of operating, executive and board positions. Mr. Russell\’s previous positions include, Founder, President and CEO of the former Apollo Gold Corporation, (now, Brigus Gold Corp. after the June 24, 2010, Apollo Gold and Linear Gold Merger). Mr. Russell was Vice President and COO for Getchell Gold Corporation, a Nevada gold producer, with production of 200,000 ounces of gold. Getchell Gold was acquired by Placer Dome Inc. in 1999 for $1.1 Billion. Prior to working at Getchell, Mr. Russell was VP of US Operations for LAC Minerals Ltd. and, after their acquisition by Barrick Gold Corporation.

 

 

\”We are very pleased that Mr. Russell has stepped in as Interim President and CEO while the Company transitions through these management changes\”, said Fred Sveinson, Director of the Company.

 

 

Separately, R.
