Vancouver, September 24, 2019: Aton Resources Inc. (AAN: TSX-V) (“Aton” or the “Corporation”) announces the retirement of its Vice President of Exploration, Rick Cavaney.

It is with a sense of gratitude that Aton Resources announces the retirement of its Vice President of Exploration, Rick Cavaney. Rick has been with Aton since 2016 and previously had been the exploration manager at Centamin and was instrumental in the discovery of the Sukari gold deposit that became the world class Sukari mine and Egypt’s only operating gold mine.

“Personally, for me it is the end of era, having known and worked with Rick over 25 years and who is one of the real doyens of modern exploration in Egypt.” commented Mark Campbell, CEO. “When we needed to restructure our exploration team back in 2015-2016, it was Rick who answered the call and it is in no small way that his contribution has been instrumental in leading to the discoveries we have made subsequently and I can never thank him enough. But after sixty years of working as an exploration geologist with such a storied career, Rick is going to take a well-earned retirement, though I suspect he will always keep his hand in. All of us here at Aton wish Rick the very best for the future. But our exploration efforts going forward are in the very capable hands of our Exploration Manager, Javier Orduña, and his world class exploration team.”
