joining Canamex, he served as director and interim President CEO of
Silver Bull Resources Inc. (formerly Metalline Mining Company/NYSE MKT and TSX),
where he was co-lead director on structuring a merger with a Vancouver-based
entrepreneurial and mineral exploration group that resulted in an increase in
its market cap from $20 million pre-merger to +$140 million post-merger.  From 1995 – 2007, he  was CEO and a director of Constellation
Copper Corporation, where he was instrumental in bringing the Lisbon Valley

initial operation.  Prior to his position
with Constellation, he was Vice-President for St. Mary Minerals Inc. for four
years, examining investment opportunities in Latin America, and Chief
Geological Engineer for CoCa Mines Inc. for five years, where he helped

CoCa Mines Inc. and Geodome Resources Limited.

springs, and geothermal resources.  Stuart moved to New Zealand in 1987 after
completing his Ph.D. in Economic Geology at the University of Minnesota to
