Vancouver, B.C. - February 20, 2019 - Otis Gold Corp. (“Otis” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: OOO) is deeply saddened to announce the sudden passing of Dr. Roger Morton, an original member of Otis’ Advisory Board.

Born in 1935, Dr. Morton was educated at the University of Nottingham (England), where he first graduated with a BSc in Geology/Earth Sciences (1st Class Honors) and later earned a PhD in Geology/Earth Sciences. Following his formal education, he enjoyed a distinguished career in the field of geology, having been a Research Fellow at the University of Oslo (Norway), a Lecturer in Geology at the University of Nottingham (England), a Visiting Professor at both the University of Hamburg (Germany) and the University of Nancy (France) and more recently a Professor of Economic Geology at the University of Alberta, where he was a Professor Emeritus at the time of his death.  Dr. Morton was widely admired by his students, who are employed in a wide variety of industry positions around the globe. In addition to his academic career, Dr. Morton was a co-Founder and Vice President of Golden Star Resources Ltd., during which time he initiated the acquisition and development of the Omai Gold Project in Guyana, which subsequently produced approximately 3.8 million ounces of gold from two open pits. 

Dr. Roger Norwich, a Director of Otis, commented, “We are deeply saddened by Roger’s sudden passing. The Board and the Company are indebted to Roger for his leadership, dedication, and significant contributions to Otis during his tenure on the Advisory Board.  His quick wit, geologic insights and steady friendship will be missed by his many friends, colleagues and former students. Our thoughts are with Roger’s family at this very difficult time.”
