EurOmax Resources (CVE:EOX) reported Tuesday that it has selected geological engineer William P. Armstrong to be appointed to the company’s board of directors.

Armstrong holds a Bachelors and Masters of Applied Science degrees from the University of British Columbia, and has over 40 years of expertise in exploration and evaluation of base precious metals worldwide.
On April 21, he joined the EurOmax’s technical advisory board, while providing technical expertise on the company’s properties. 

EurOmax executive chairman, John Nugent, said: "Armstrong brings a wealth of industry experience necessary to assist the company in maximizing the potential of its properties during exploration, and potentially through development to production."

After 41 years, Armstrong retired from Teck Cominco in 2006, where he held the position of general manager and resource evaluation for the last 10 years. 

Currently, Armstrong is a director of Taseko Mines (TSE:TKO). Armstrong's appointment is subject to Toronto Stock Venture Exchange approval. 

Vancouver-based junior explorer EurOmax has three core properties in Bulgaria, Serbia and Macedonia. The company focuses on acquiring and developing mineral resources in Southeastern Europe.
