Bill Johnstone, Corporate Secretary, commented: "Bill, Rodger and Gary are a great addition to the existing management of Razore Rock. Bill McGuinty's recent gold exploration experience with Queenston will be a tremendous asset when Razore Rock is able to proceed with its proposed drill program at Oxford Lake. Rodger Roden works with a number of junior exploration companies and brings a wealth of accounting experience to the table. Gary Zak will give Razore Rock exposure to the slightly more optimistic and entrepreneurial market in Vancouver as he applies his 30 years of experience to familiarizing the West with both Razore Rock and the Canadian Securities Exchange. I am very pleased that these gentlemen have agreed to join the Razore Rock team to work to build a viable junior gold explorer."
