Rockridge Resources (TSX-V: ROCK)(OTC: RRRLF) — currently trading below C$0.15 per share — has announced the appointment of Jonathan Wiesblatt as CEO with outgoing CEO and P.Geo Grant Ewing remaining on as a consulting geologist.

Mr. Wiesblatt brings over two decades of experience in the financial industry in various roles to Rockridge Resources including focused expertise in the mining industry as an analyst and institutional investor.

Incoming Rockridge Resources CEO, Jonathan Wiesblatt, commented via press release:

“I am excited to join the Rockridge team to focus on building shareholder value by advancing the Knife Lake Project and growing the Company’s asset base through strategic acquisitions. The Knife Lake Project is a significant deposit with many high-grade intercepts returned from historic drilling and excellent discovery potential exists on the large landholding controlled by Rockridge. Rockridge has a very experienced team with a variety of skills including technical expertise, mining experience and capital markets knowledge. The assets in Rockridge at present create the foundation for a potentially very compelling and exciting Canadian resources company.”

And the timing could not be any better with the current focus on Knife Lake (~200 million lbs Cu) and with the red metal trading at near-decade highs above US$4 per pound.

Mike Fagan has mining in his blood. As a teenager he staked countless gold and silver properties in Nevada alongside his dad, Brian Fagan, who created the Prospect Generator model that’s still widely used today in the resource space. One of those staking projects was put into production by a major Canadian mining company — a truly rare and profitable experience. That background uniquely qualifies him as a mining stock speculator. One of the most well-known names in the business, Mike is now putting that experience to use for the benefit of Resource Stock Digest and Hard Asset Digest readers.
