Tethyan Resources is a member of the Augusta Group of Companies, and is a precious and base metals mineral exploration company incorporated in England and Wales and listed on the TSX Venture Exchange.

Tethyan is focused on the Tethyan Metallogenic Belt in Eastern Europe, mainly Serbia, where it is acquiring and exploring a portfolio of quality precious and base metals projects with known mineralization and compelling drill targets. It emphasizes responsible engagement with local communities and stakeholders, and is committed to the proactive implementation of Good International Industry Practice (GIIP) and sustainable health, safety and environmental management.

Puri is a professor of law and former associate dean at York University’s Osgoode Hall Law School. She is also an affiliated scholar to Davies Ward Phillips & Vineberg LLP. Puri is one of Canada’s most respected scholars and commentators on issues of corporate governance, corporate law, securities law and financial regulation. Puri is currently a commissioner of the Ontario Securities Commission and serves on the board of directors of the Canada Infrastructure Bank.

On the board of directors for Tethyan Resources, Puri replaces Michael Andrews who has resigned to focus on his professional commitments at a number of other companies where he holds senior executive positions.

Jerrold Annett, chief executive officer, said, “We would like to thank Dr. Andrews for his long-term support and wish him well in his future endeavours. We are very pleased to have Professor Puri join our board, bringing deep expertise in the area of corporate governance as she did at Arizona Mining. With the closing of our $5-million private placement last week, we are well funded for our 2019 exploration program.”
