Cosa Resources Corp. ( CSE: COSA ) (“ Cosa Resources ” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the appointment of Justin Rodko as Corporate Development Manager and also announces the voting results from its annual general meeting.
Mr. Rodko is a Professional Geoscientist with nearly a decade of uranium exploration experience in Saskatchewan and Nunavut. Joining IsoEnergy shortly after the company’s inception, and quickly progressing to Senior Geologist, Justin played a key role in discovering and advancing the Hurricane deposit to its status as the world’s highest grade Indicated Mineral Resource in uranium. For these accomplishments Justin was awarded the AME 2022 Colin Spence Award for excellence in global mineral exploration alongside other current Cosa team members, Steve Blower, Andy Carmichael and Craig Parry. Mr. Rodko’s previous uranium experience includes working at Orano’s (formerly AREVA) Waterbury Cigar and Waterbury UEM projects as well as NexGen’s Arrow Deposit in the Athabasca Basin, and Orano’s Kiggavik project in Nunavut. Justin holds a BSc degree in Geology from the University of Regina.
Keith Bodnarchuk, President and CEO, commented: “We are excited to add Justin Rodko to the Cosa team. Justin brings an excellent track record in uranium exploration which includes being an essential member of the Hurricane deposit discovery team. Justin has always shown a penchant for capital markets and corporate strategy and will leverage his tremendous past technical success in his role in Corporate Development. In just over 12 months since Cosa’s IPO, we have built an industry leading team and assembled a land package of >100,000ha in the prolific Athabasca Basin. We look forward to getting to work to explore and advance our projects.
Justin Rodko, Corporate Development Manager commented: “I am thrilled to join the team at Cosa and am thankful for the opportunity to apply my technical knowledge to advancing Cosa’s existing projects while working towards expanding our portfolio into areas that have been underexplored and underappreciated. Though the Athabasca Basin is becoming saturated with new explorers, our experience with the Hurricane discovery puts this group in a unique position to identify and aggressively pursue future opportunities. This is a familiar team for me, and I look forward to sharing new successes as we work towards establishing Cosa as the Athabasca Basin’s next junior explorer of choice.”
