Myriad Uranium Appoints Technical Committee Including Former Global Atomic COO
Vancouver, British Columbia, May 24, 2023 / IRW Press / – Myriad Uranium Corp. (CSE:M) (Myriad or the Company) is pleased to announce the formal addition of social, environmental, exploration and mining professionals to its technical committee. These personalities are all extremely successful in the mining industry and Myriad looks forward to their passionate dedication. The committee now includes George van der Walt, Fred Bonner, Adamou Ousemane, David Miller, Michael Cantey, Ron Halas and Thomas Lamb.
With this technical committee, which includes not only international but more importantly high caliber local experts, Myriad is able to make one or more discoveries, conduct their development in a responsible manner, maintain solid local relationships and create value for shareholders to maximize, said Thomas Lamb, CEO of Myriad Uranium. The addition of Ron Halas, until recently COO of our neighbor Global Atomic, is a major coup, especially as we hope to be able to emulate Global’s path and we are convinced that his know-how will help us in this. Myriad’s properties are located on and adjacent to the structure of some of the most significant uranium deposits in Africa – and the world – including Orano’s Imouraren of 384 million lbs eU3O8 and Global’s Dasa of 236 million lbs eU3O8. Dasa, which lies directly above the Azouza fault of our Afouday project, is particularly high grade and has excellent economics. We would like to make a similar discovery.
George van der Walt is directing Myriad’s exploration activities. He is a senior economic geologist and an expert in uranium exploration. For example, he directed the exploration and development of Peninsula’s major Karoo uranium project in South Africa. He currently serves as Geological Operations Manager for MSA Group, a multinational consulting firm with offices in South Africa, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Kazakhstan.

Adamou is a graduate of the École Nationale Supérieure de Géologie of the Institut National Polytechnique de Lorraine de Nancy in France and holds a Master’s degree in Natural Resources. He is an Officer of the National Order of Merit of the Republic of Niger, one of Niger’s highest awards.
