"I have known Bruce for over 20 years and have acted as legal representative on behalf of several of the companies he was involved with including Cordilleran Resources Management Group, Sky Energy Capital, and Orsa Ventures. I also acted with Bruce as a Director of Maple Leaf Royalty Corp. Bruce has extensive knowledge and experience in the resource industries in Canada and internationally, and has excellent connections with a large number of people in such industries and in the Canadian capital markets. In my experience, Bruce has always displayed the highest standard of professionalism and ethics while conducting business and raising capital in the Canadian markets."

"I have dealt with Bruce in a professional capacity for roughly an 8 year time span through several deals in the oil & gas and mineral resource sector marketed by Maple Leaf Funds. Bruce has a vast knowledge of not only the resource industry, but the corporate finance and structuring options inherent. I always appreciate Bruce's honesty, ethics and integrity. Most importantly though, I appreciate his candor about where a project is at whether it is positive, neutral or negative. Not everything in corporate finance and capital markets is going to go right all of the time, and I appreciate the fact that Bruce has always reported very factually on what is really happening with the different projects we have participated in."
