Griffin Mining Limited (“Griffin” or the “Company”) is devastated to announce the passing yesterday of it’s main board director, Rupert Crowe, after a short illness. Rupert was a giant of the oil & gas and hard rock mining industries culminating in his creating the premier international geological consultancy firm CSA Global and discovering the Caijiaying Zinc & Gold deposit. The directors and staff of the Company cannot begin to express their sorrow and will sorely miss his wisdom, expertise and counsel. As is absolutely appropriate, the staff at Caijiaying have set the flags at Caijiaying at half-mast in his honour.
Chairman Mladen Ninkov commented, “Every mineral discovery requires a champion. Someone who believes when all around do not believe. Rupert was that person. Without him Caijiaying would have remained an empty valley in China. An extraordinary, brilliant geologist, the Father of Caijiaying and, far more importantly, a gracious, gentle, considered, dedicated, intelligent human being it has been my absolute privilege to know and to have spent a large portion of my working life. I shall not see his like again.
