American CuMo Mining Corporation (CuMoCo) originated as a Canadian natural resource exploration and development company called Mosquito Consolidated Gold Mines Limited (Mosquito). In 1991 management assumed control of Mosquito Creek Gold Mining Company Limited and its high potential Mosquito Creek Claim in Eastern British Columbia, hence its original name. Over the ensuing decade, Mosquito undertook a strategic program to purchase and option high-potential properties in low political risk environments in North America and Australia. In October 2012, the Company completed a management change with a newly elected board of directors and a new focus on its 100% owned CuMo Project, a massive Molybdenum, Copper and Silver deposit located in central Idaho, USA. The name of the Company was changed to American CuMo Mining Corporation to reflect this change and the importance of this world class project.
CuMoCo’s Board of Directors includes two prominent Idaho business leaders – Forsgren Associates principal John Moeller, Ph.D., and attorney and Northwest Mining Association board member Joseph Baird, a partner of Baird Hanson, LLP. In July 2014, at a special general meeting of shareholders of CuMoCo, Mr. Thomas Conway of West Jordan, Utah was appointed to the Board. Since 2011, Mr. Conway has served as Vice president of Newmont Mining Corporation, and President and CEO of I-Minerals Inc., a TSX Venture Exchange listed company developing two unique industrial mineral deposits in Idaho.
