Falco Pacific Appoints Mr. Paul-Henri Girard to the Board of Directors

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/14/14 -- Falco Pacific Resource Group Inc. ("Falco Pacific") (TSX VENTURE: FPC) is pleased to announce that Paul-Henri Girard has been appointed to the Falco Pacific Board of Directors.

Mr. Girard joined Falco Pacific earlier this year in the role of Senior Mining Advisor to oversee the advancement of the next phase of the Horne Mine Complex project, which includes the on-going review and optimizing of the Horne 5 Deposit. Mr. Girard brings to Falco Pacific over 30 years of experience in mine development and production in the Abitibi region.

Prior to joining Falco Pacific, Mr. Girard acted as Vice-President of Canadian Operations for Agnico Eagle Mines Limited ("Agnico"). During his 25 years at Agnico, Mr. Girard was instrumental in the development of its flagship LaRonde polymetallic mine, which shares a number of similarities to Horne 5, and in the advancement of the Goldex and Lapa mines in Quebec. Mr. Girard was an integral part of a successful senior management team that oversaw the growth of Agnico from 400 employees to over 4,000 at the time of his retirement.

Mr. Girard's appointment to the Board of Falco Pacific comes as Falco Pacific not only looks to continue to de-risk the opportunities in and around the Horne 5 Deposit, but also begins to ramp up exploration on high priority targets throughout the Rouyn-Noranda Project area. Additional information on Falco Pacific's exploration targeting will be forthcoming over the weeks ahead.

Commenting on the appointment, Interim CEO Jim Davidson said "Mr. Girard's skills and experience of building some of the most successful mines in this region makes him ideally suited to serve on the Board of Falco Pacific and we are very pleased that he has decided to accept this position."

Falco Pacific also announces the granting of incentive stock options to certain of its Directors, Officers, staff and consultants to purchase up to 635,000 common shares in its capital stock at a price of $0.45 per share, exercisable for a period of five years.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
In today's enterprise, digital transformation represents organizational change even more so than technology change, as customer preferences and behavior drive end-to-end transformation across lines of business as well as IT. To capitalize on the ubiquitous disruption driving this transformation, companies must be able to innovate at an increasingly rapid pace. Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facin...
