First Nordic: New Team, New Socials and a Growing Portfolio

First Nordic Metals Corp. (the “Company” or “First Nordic”) (TSXV: FNM) (OTCQB: FNMCF) (FRA: HEG0) announced the appointment of new additions to its team as well as the launch of its new website and social channels following the merger of Gold Line Resources Ltd. (“Gold Line”) and Barsele Minerals Corp. (“Barsele”) in Q1 2024.

Board and Management Additions

Marc Legault
Mr. Marc Legault was recently appointed as Director of the Board. Marc is a geologist and was also a licensed professional engineer with over 40 years experience in the gold and base metals industry including 34 years working with Agnico Eagle Mines Limited (“Agnico”), where he held various exploration, operations, and management positions until he retired from Agnico in 2022 as a Senior Vice President. He spent time working on the Barsele project as well as the Oijarvi project, both of which are now First Nordic projects. His technical knowledge and experience with Agnico will be instrumental for First Nordic as it advances its flagship Barsele Project in Sweden in joint venture with Agnico.

Johannes Holzäpfel
Mr. Holzäpfel was appointed Regional Director of First Nordic. He is based in Stockholm, Sweden and currently serves as Exploration Manager of Europe for EMX Royalty Corp., where he has been for 7 years. Johannes was part of the original team that staked the Gold Line belt in 2016-17. He was an important part of the launch of Gold Line in 2021 and has tremendous experience in navigating tenure, community, and environmental processes in Sweden. He is a geologist and has close to 15 years of experience in the mineral exploration industry. During his career, Mr. Holzäpfel worked for Boliden AB also in Sweden, and Ivanhoe Mines Ltd. in Africa and Mongolia. Johannes graduated with a Master’s degree in Economic Geology from the Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen, Germany.

We are very excited to be building out our First Nordic team. The addition of Marc Legault adds significant technical bench strength specific to our key assets and helps us build on our partnership with Agnico. The addition of Johannes Holzäpfel bolsters our operational efficiency in Sweden and increases our in-country presence. Our presence in Sweden is a key part of our strategy moving forward; in line with this, our aim is an eventual listing of First Nordic shares on Stockholm’s Nasdaq First North Growth Market Listing in 2024.Taj Singh, President & CEO, First Metals Corp.
