MONTREAL, QUEBEC–(Marketwired – April 28, 2015) – (TSX VENTURE:SOI) – As part of its corporate development plan, management of Sirios is pleased to announce the nomination of Guy Chevrette to the Board of Directors. In connection with its three-year plan, this appointment reflects the desire of the company to develop a strong corporate team to support the technical team that is ready to increase its explorations activity on the Cheechoo gold discovery.

Mr. Chevrette first worked as an unionist where he made his mark as a key member of the Cliche Commission in the investigation of the sacking of James Bay in 1974. He became a member of the National Assembly of Quebec in 1976, a position which he held until 2002. During this period, he served as Minister of Natural Resources, Minister responsible for Aboriginal Affairs, Minister responsible for regional development, Minister of Transport and Minister responsible for Wildlife and Parks. He also was the Minister in several other ministries such as of Social Affairs, Health and Social Services, State for Regional Development and Municipal Affairs. In 2002, he was appointed Special Representative of the Prime Minister on the issue of the territorial agreement with the Innu of North Shore. He then became the President of the Association des centres locaux de développement du Québec (ACLDQ) in 2004 and in 2005, he became CEO of the Québec Forest Industry Council, until the end of 2010.

Sirios will benefit from the vast knowledge that Mr. Chevrette possesses on native communities, social groups and stakeholders from various levels of government involved in the natural resources sector.

Roger Doucet appointed Technical Advisor

Roger Doucet has left his position as director of Sirios to allow the joining of Mr. Chevrette to the Board of Directors. Nonetheless, Mr. Doucet is named the official technical advisor of Sirios.

He will continue to provide valuable technical advices to Sirios, particularly on the Cheechoo project. Dominique Doucet, the President of the Board, would like to thank Roger for his constructive input to the Board of Directors.
