Ken Berry: Olympic Hockey Player to Junior Mining Chairman
Ken Berry is a Founding Director of Northern Vertex Mining Corp (TSX-V:NEE) and Kootenay Silver Inc. (TSX-V:KTN). Since inception, both companies have made incredible strides forward, despite poor market conditions. Kootenay Silver has delineated millions of ounces of silver in Mexico and Northern Vertex is in the midst of transition from development into production.
Ken started his career as a professional hockey player, even participating in the 1980 and 1984 Olympic games. Teamwork and determination are two skills Ken developed while playing professionally – skills he believes are key to creating a successful mining company.
Northern Vertex is perfectly poised to move from development into production and take advantage of the turn in the market. The company anticipates a low cost of production and will be competitive even in a market pull back.
Their flagship asset, the Moss Mine is located an hour and half from Las Vegas and 3.5 hours from Phoenix. In fact, Palisade made a trip to the property earlier this month, and a detailed report can be read here – (http://palisade-research.com/palisade-mine-tour-iii-guns-meth-and-gold-in-arizona/)
