WINNIPEG, MANITOBA--(Marketwired - June 18, 2013) - San Gold Corporation (TSX:SGR)(OTCQX:SGRCF) is saddened today to announce the passing of Rod Bushie, a former Manitoba Grand Chief, 18-year Chief of nearby Hollow Water First Nation, an important Company liaison with Manitoba First Nation communities, and a close colleague of many of the Company's senior management team.
