Klondex CEO, Blane Wilson, commented, “We are sorry to see Ted leave after a brief tenure at Klondex, but we are confident our Fire Creek exploration program remains in strong hands. This is a great opportunity for Ted who is a co-founder, shareholder and former Chief Geologist of Neutron Energy, a privately-held uranium explorer and developer.
