Great Bear Resources Ltd (CVE:GBR) (OTCQX:GTBAF) has bolstered its board with mining industry veteran Michael Kenyon as the group continues to advance the exciting Dixie project in Red Lake, Ontario.

"Michael is a decorated industry veteran who has overseen several major discoveries through the advanced exploration, mine development, construction and operational phases," said Chris Taylor, Great Bear's chief executive, in a statement.

"This includes successfully concluding M&A transactions collectively worth more than $4 billion. His extensive experience will prove invaluable to Great Bear as we continue to advance the Dixie project, and we are very pleased to have him join our team."

With over four decades in the industry, Kenyon had helped in developing the Bulyanhulu project in Tanzania, the Meadowbank project in Nunavut, Canada, the Onca Puma project in Brazil, and the Detour Lake project in Ontario, Canada.

Indeed, he was chairman and Interim CEO at Detour Gold Corp, which was later acquired by Kirkland Lake Gold Ltd and was also a senior independent director of Acacia Mining plc.

"Great mining projects under enthused, capable guidance have been a winning combination in my experience," said Kenyon on Wednesday.

"So I'm especially excited by the opportunity to work with the solid team of mining professionals at Great Bear on such an exceptional gold project as Dixie."

Great Bear Resources controls more than 300 sq km of highly prospective tenure across four projects - its flagship Dixie site, the Pakwash property, the Dedee property and the Sobel property, all of which are accessible year-round through existing roads.

Earlier in June, the firm announced the discovery of a further Red Lake style high-grade gold zone at Dixie named the 'Arrow' zone.

The new gold-bearing veins have the same high temperature red-brown hydrothermal biotite alteration that is characteristic of the Hinge zone veins at Dixie, and the High Grade Zone at the Red Lake Gold mine, the company had said.
