ALLEGIANT is pleased to announce that Andy Wallace has joined as Chief Executive Officer in connection with the completion of the Spin-Out from Columbus Gold.
Mr. Wallace is the principal of Cordex Exploration, considered by many in the mining industry to be one of the most successful gold exploration groups in the United States.

At his Marigold discovery and also at the Pinson and Dee mines in Nevada, Mr. Wallace directed or was involved in, resource expansion, development, feasibility, engineering, permitting, mine construction and production. Pinson and Dee were Cordex discoveries, and in the mid-1970s Pinson accounted for 7% of all U.S. domestic gold production.

He completed a B.S. in geology at Eastern New Mexico University, an M.S. in geology at the University of Texas at El Paso, and a PhD in geology at the Mackay School of Mines at the University of Nevada, Reno.
