Canadian company Trelawney Mining and Exploration has appointed Steve Norregaard as chief operating officer. He joins Trelawney to oversee development of the Cote Lake Deposit on the company's Chester Project in Ontario.

Steve Norregaard is a qualified mining engineer having graduated from the Western Australian School of Mines in 1988. During his 14 year career in contracting and managing gold, nickel, copper lead, zinc and silver mining projects throughout Australia, he progressed to head the mining division of one of Australia's leading contracting firms, Macmahon Holdings.

He then joined Western Australian-based Tectonic Resources as general manager and subsequently managing director overseeing a turnaround in the company's fortunes. Under his direction the company profitably exploited the RAV 8 underground nickel mine, built the Burnakura Gold Project which was subsequently divested and oversaw the enhancement of the potential of the company's ground holding in the Ravensthorpe region in Western Australia. He oversaw the completion of a definitive feasibility study into the development of the resource.

Trelawney has also appointed Steve McIntyre, a member of the board of directors, as company chairman and David Reid, manager of IR and business relations of the company since 2009, as vice-president, investor relations.

Trelawney is a Canadian junior mining and exploration company with a focus on Archean gold deposits. The current focus is directed towards the continued exploration and development of the Cote Lake Deposit.
