GoGold Founder Terry Coughlan Joins Sassy’s Board of Directors

Sassy Resources Corporation (“Sassy” or the “Company”) (CSE: SASY) (OTCQB: SSYRF) (FSE: 4E7) is pleased to announce that Mr. Terence F. Coughlan, P.Geo, has joined the Company’s Board of Directors. 

Mr. Coughlan, the founding chief executive officer of producer GoGold Resources, brings significant additional strengths to the Sassy board at a time of transformative developments for the Company in both Newfoundland and Northwest B.C.’s prolific Eskay Camp.

Mr. Coughlan stated: “I’m very familiar with Newfoundland, and that’s actually where GoGold got its start many years ago. After serving as a technical adviser with Sassy, I’m eagerly joining the Board to play an even bigger role with a company I believe is extremely well positioned on every front from property holdings to management, share structure and financial strength. Sassy has accomplished much in its first year as a publicly traded company and I’m looking forward to even more exciting times ahead.” 

Mr. Mark Scott, Sassy President and CEO, commented: “With a nearly 40-year record of success in mineral exploration, operations and corporate development, Terry is a tremendous addition to our board. Notably, each of the last three public companies with which he’s been involved have developed a producing mine.” 

Mr. Coughlan holds a bachelor of science degree in geology from Saint Mary’s University and has been actively involved in the mineral resource industry since 1984. He is the former chairman, president and CEO of GoGold Resources, a Canadian-based gold and silver producer with properties in Mexico. Previously, he was vice-president and director of Gammon Gold Inc., and vice-president and director of Acadian Mining Corp. Mr. Coughlan is a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.

To make room for Mr. Coughlan on the Sassy board, Mr. Robert Stewart, P.Geo., has resigned from his position as an independent director. Sassy extends its appreciation to Mr. Stewart for his contributions to the Company and wishes him success in his future endeavors.
