Ms. Copps, the first woman ever named to the post of Deputy Prime Minister of Canada, also served as Canada's Minister of Environment.

As Minister responsible for Canada's National Park System, Ms. Copps introduced the concept of ecological integrity, which has subsequently been adopted internationally. She also spearheaded the UNESCO convention on cultural diversity.

Tirex Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Bryan Slusarchuk, states, "Canadians have long respected Ms. Copps for her role as Deputy Prime Minister of our nation, but also for having ushered in some of the most stringent environmental regulations in the world during her tenure as Minister of Environment. As Albania moves towards European Union integration, an increasing emphasis will be put on companies' operations as they pertain to environment, health, safety and community. Ms. Copps will act as a key advisor to Tirex to ensure the Company continues to act as a leader in these areas. As Albania moves towards the European Union, who better to advise Tirex than an individual who achieved international acclaim in her role as Minister of Environment."

On June 23 rd, 2013, Albania held general elections and the Alliance for a European Albania (ASHE) won these elections decisively. Under the leadership of Prime Minister Designate Edi Rama, the ASHE will take power on September 9 th, 2013. The ASHE has made European Union integration a key priority of the new government and has also recently announced his incoming cabinet which consists of the largest number of female appointees in Albanian history. Prime Minister Designate Rama has also named former British Prime Minister Tony Blair as an advisor to the incoming government.

Tirex President, Mr. Fred Tejada, P.Geo, states, "Tirex has operated to a best practices approach in terms of environment, health, safety and community since starting work in Albania six years ago. With Ms. Copps advising on these matters and with continued support in these areas from the EBRD, we are targeting a continued leadership role in this new era of Albanian mineral exploration and development."
