:: BacTech Announces New President and CEO

Brad Marchant, Chairman of BacTech Enviromet Corporation (BacTech) has announced that the Board of Directors has appointed Ross Orr to the position of President & CEO. Mr. Orr has been a director of the Company since its inception in Canada in 1997 and for the past two years has been the Vice- President of Corporate Development for the Company.

Mr. Marchant and Mr. Orr will work closely together to develop the Tonkin Springs gold mine project towards production scheduled for the third quarter of 2004 and to acquire additional new projects that would utilize the Company’s bioleaching technology.

BacTech has developed and patented bioleach technology for the treatment of refractory ores and concentrates to enhance the recovery of gold, silver and base metals. BacTech has successfully commissioned three commercial bioleach plants for the recovery of gold and more recently has demonstrated its technology in the selective recovery of precious and base metals from complex sulphide concentrates. Bioleaching is a commercially accepted and environmentally friendly alternative to conventional smelting operations and provides BacTech with a distinct market advantage in the acquisition and operation of mineral properties. BacTech’s business is to own and operate mining projects independently or in joint venture. Tonkin Springs in Nevada is BacTech’s first Company-owned project.
