Vancouver, British Columbia — April 12, 2021 — CopAur Minerals Inc. (the “Company”) (CPAU:TSXV) announces the appointment of Mr. John Williamson, Mr. Ewan Webster, Mr. Jim Greg and Mr. Malcolm Dorsey to its advisory board effective today.
Jeremy Yaseniuk commented, “I am pleased to welcome and be joined by such an accomplished team of geologists and individuals, who have led both Benchmark Metals Inc. (TSX-V:BNCH) and Thesis Gold Inc. (TSX-V:TAU). The new Advisory Board will assist Derrick Strickland and Alvin Jackson, CopAur’s current geological team. Our combined knowledge of the Toodoggone Region in British Columbia, Canada will help expedite the advancement of CopAur Minerals. We have found that in addition to the geology, these projects have several similarities and significant potential. Since the price of gold was about $300 per ounce in 1985, many of these projects were deemed not economical at the time, resultantly several early Canadian Explorers abandoned fully assaying of its drill core. With gold prices 4-6 times higher now, and the Toodoggone Region more accessible with new roads and power, there is an opportunity to discover what was previously overlooked.”
John Williamson is Chairman of Benchmark Metals Inc. has served as Founder, Chairman, President, CEO, CFO or Director of more than 20 listed companies in Canada and Australia. On more than one occasion his team’s efforts have been recognized for excellence by being named to the TSX Venture 50TM.

He has a PhD from the University of Calgary and is a registered professional geoscientist in British Columbia. He currently is the president Director and CEO of Thesis Gold.
