Dr. Turic had been with Crown Point Oil & Gas S.A. since 2007 and was a valued member of management and the Board of Directors. He will be missed.

The management of Crown Point in both Canada and Argentina will be fulfilling Dr. Turic's duties until such time as a suitable successor is appointed. In accordance with the corporation's succession planning, Dr. Turic's duties in the interim will be shared between Dr. Brian J.
