VANCOUVER — Defense Metals Corp., has joined the Vancouver-based Discovery Group led by John Robins and Jim Paterson. In addition, Dale Wallster has been appointed to the company’s board of directors.

“We are excited to welcome Defense Metals into Discovery Group.

The addition of Defense to our roster of companies, will round out the Discovery Group portfolio and will elevate the exposure of all our member companies, as we continue to educate and inform shareholders about market opportunities that exist with high quality junior mining explorers.”

As President and founder of Roughrider Uranium Corp., which was acquired by Hathor Exploration Limited in 2006, Wallster and his team are credited for the discovery of Hathor’s Roughrider deposit.
