Robert L. Dumont, the Company's President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "I am extremely pleased to have John join Atlas and that Barbara has agreed to become the Company's CFO. I worked with John at my previous employer, Idaho General Mines. His unique combination of transactional and marketing skills and legal background will serve Atlas very well as we move to rapidly drive our two main divisions, NanoClay & Technologies, Inc. (NanoClay) and Atlas Fausett Contracting (Atlas Fausett), to their next stage of growth and development. Barbara has been promoted to Chief Financial Officer in recognition of her skills and experience with the Company. In addition to overseeing our accounting and public reporting functions, Barbara will be tasked with the rapid implementation of several new corporate governance initiatives, which I believe are essential to retaining and enhancing the confidence of our shareholders, clients and customers. With John and Barbara we have made an important first step in building the professional management team to aggressively optimize and pursue our strategy for delivering increased shareholder value from our Atlas Fausett and NanoClay assets. We very much look forward to communicating and executing on that strategy over the coming weeks and months."
