“We are pleased to welcome Crescat as a significant shareholder of Northern Shield. Crescat is a US based, long term investor, that brings financial and technical expertise to Northern Shield as well as exposure to the US market. We feel that Crescat’s value driven equity model fits well with our model-driven approach to exploration. The partnership allows us to simultaneously tap into the geological expertise of Dr Quinton Hennigh and the financial acumen of Crescat – a rare opportunity. We look forward to working together.”
