July 29, '21 - NR

Glenn Mullan - Advisory
Glenn Mullan serves as the founder, and President/CEO of Golden Valley Mines Ltd. and Executive Chair of Abitibi Royalties Inc., both based in Val-D'Or, QC where his main area of interest continues to be grassroots early-stage exploration, primarily for precious and base metals, and energy minerals in Canada and abroad. Glenn formed a nickel mining exploration company (Canadian Royalties Inc.) in 1999, and which soon won the AEMQ's "Prospector of the Year" Award in 2003 for its multiple Ni-Cu-PGE discoveries in the remote Nunavik Region of Northern Québec. This company soon evolved into a Ni-Cu-PGE producer that currently employs more than 1000 people in Northern Québec, and is currently owned by a Chinese nickel producer.
Glenn Mullan was the 36th President of the Prospectors & Developers of Canada (PDAC). Over his +40-year career, Glenn has followed a traditional mining exploration and prospecting path, beginning with contract geophysical surveys in the North (Québec, Ontario, BC, Yukon) and working in remote locations.
Glenn's guidance on the pathway to production will be invaluable for Quebec Nickel.
