News Release, 11 April 2008 [cached]
Chihuahua, Mexico - (MarketWire) - April 11, 2008 - Paramount Gold and Silver Corp (AMEX: PZG) (TSX: PZG.TO) (Frankfurt: P6G, WKN: A0HGKQ) is pleased to announce the addition of Danny Sims as Senior Technical Advisor. Dr. Sims has a bachelors degree from the University of Cincinnati, M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in economic geology from the University of Arizona, and a J.D. degree from the University of Arizona. Dr. Sims is a fellow member of the Society of Economic Geologists, a California licensed Professional Geologist, and a member of the Arizona Bar. He has over 20 years of experience in the industry with a wide array of skills.
Dr. Sims first task and priority as part of the Paramount team is to lead the upcoming National Instrument 43-101 compliant resource estimate at their San Miguel Project in Mexico.
Dr. Sims started his career as an exploration geologist, working first for Newmont Exploration, and later for Cominco Alaska Exploration. He began working in active mines while conducting his Ph.D. research at Comincos Red Dog Mine, where his study of the relationship of ore and structural geology predicted the location of the yet undiscovered Aqquluk deposit (published inferred reserve of 76 Mt grading 13.7% zinc, 3.6% lead, and 66 g/t silver).
After graduate school, Dr. Sims became Senior Geologist and Partner with Call & Nicholas, Incorporated. While at Call & Nicholas, he supported engineers in the design of open pit and underground mines throughout North America, South America, and Asia by developing detailed structural geology maps, databases, and interpretations. Some of the mines that Dr. Sims conducted significant work at as a consultant include Freeport McMoRans Grasberg, IOZ, DOZ, and Kucing Liar mines (copper-gold) Cuajone, Tyrone, Chino, and Sierrita (porphyry copper); Thompson Creek (molybdenum); Refugio, Lone Tree and Twin Creeks (gold); Diavik (diamonds); Calaveras (limestone); Rasmussen Ridge (phosphate), and Boron (borax). Dr. Sims coauthored an invited paper that describes the methodology that Call & Nicholas developed for structural geology analysis of ore deposits in a publication titled Collecting and Using Geologic Structure Data for Slope Design, in, Slope Stability in Surface Mining, SME (2000).
Dr. Sims also practiced mining law and commercial litigation with Ryley Carlock & Applewhite. At RCA he conducted legal due diligence for the purchase of mining properties, worked with federal regulators, and did extensive work to successfully secure legal title of disputed mining claims.

Further Geo Minerals is expanding its geological team to advance this corporate opportunity, by welcoming Denis L. Norton and Danny B. Sims to the advisory board.
Dr. Sims is a Fellow of the Society of Economic Geologists, a California licensed Professional Geologist, and a member of the Arizona Bar. He has over 20 years of experience in the mining industry with emphasis in structural geology. Much of his career has been devoted to mapping and interpreting structural data for cost-effective mine design at properties including Grasberg, Kucing Liar, Cuajone, Tyrone, Chino, Thompson Creek, Sierrita, and numerous others.
Drs. Norton and Sims will be working closely with Dr. Tom McCandless, a fellow member of the Geo advisory with over 30 years experience in geochemistry applied to resource discovery himself.

Danny joined Ryley Carlock & Applewhite in 2005.His practice areas are transportation and mining and natural resources.
While attending law school at the University of Arizona, Danny interned for The Honorable Judge Richard Fields, Pima County Superior Court, Civil Division and clerked for The Honorable Judge Howard Fell, Pima County Superior Court, Criminal Division.Danny also clerked for a private attorney on transportation law issues.In 2004, Danny received the Waste Management Symposia/James Glasgow Fellowship in Environmental Law.
Before attending law school, Danny had a very successful career in the mining industry.Danny went to work as an exploration geologist for Newmont Exploration, Ltd. in Elko, Nevada immediately after graduating from the University of Cincinnati.After approximately one and a half years with Newmont, Danny began graduate school studying economic geology at the University of Arizona.While completing his M.S. degree, Danny worked at the Ash Peak silver mine in Duncan, Arizona and for Cominco Alaska Exploration in Anchorage, Alaska.Danny did his Ph.D. dissertation at Cominco's Red Dog mine in northwest Alaska.While working on his dissertation, Danny taught physical and structural geology laboratories and helped teach the geology field camp at the University of Arizona.
In 1994, Danny began working as a Geologist with Call & Nicholas, Inc. in Tucson, Arizona.Danny mapped and interpreted structural geology, lithology and alteration for engineered design of open pit and underground mines.This required Danny to work with in-house staff at various mines to develop geological and geotechnical models for copper, gold, molybdenum, diamond, limestone, phosphate and borate deposits.Danny also conducted numerous training courses for geotechnical mapping and worked with in-house staff to establish geotechnical mapping and interpretation protocols.
Danny left Call & Nicholas in 2001 to attend law school.The practice of law has provided him an avenue to apply his previous experience in new and challenging ways.

Danny Sims - Investment Executive.Danny is a California-registered Professional Geologist with a long and diverse history of natural resource experience.After receiving a B.S. in geology at the University of Cincinnati in 1987, he worked for Newmont Exploration, prospecting for gold in northeastern Nevada.Danny then attended the University of Arizona, where he received M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in economic geology.His master's thesis was a study of structural controls on the Ash Peak silver deposit in Arizona.While completing the coursework for this degree, Danny worked summers for Cominco Alaska Exploration, prospecting for base metals throughout Alaska.He then did his Ph.D., examining the genesis and structural controls on Cominco's Red Dog zinc-lead-silver deposit in northwestern Alaska.His detailed study identified the huge Aqualuk Zone at Red Dog.
While finishing his Ph.D. degree, Danny began his long and successful career as a mining consultant.As a consultant, he helped his clients develop geologic models of their ore deposits for mine design.Those clients included Phelps Dodge, Freeport, Kennecott, Cyprus, Southern Peru, Santa Fe, U.S. Borax, Thompson Creek, Heidelberg Cement, Agrium, and many others.The commodities Danny worked on in North America, South America, and Asia included gold, copper, molybdenum, diamonds, limestone, phosphate, and borax.
Danny gave up his consulting career because he wanted to travel less and spend more time with his family.Since then, Danny started and managed a small organic fertilizer company, and attended law school, where he focused his studies on water and natural resources.He then worked briefly as an attorney for a large Arizona law firm.Most of his work at the law firm involved mining claim disputes and regulatory law controlling exploration and mining activities on public and private lands.Danny came to Global Resources in 2007 because he saw it as the best place to combine his extensive knowledge in natural resources with his business interests.
Backed by Global's expertise, and the investing acumen of Rick Rule, Danny can help you to make informed investment decisions in the often-times complicated natural resources securities markets.
