VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA - Mineral Mountain Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:MMV - News) is pleased to announce that Nelson W. Baker, P.Eng., has accepted the appointment as President and Chief Executive Officer of Mineral Mountain Resources Ltd. (www.mineralmountainresources.com). Mr. Baker is a seasoned exploration and mining professional with more than forty years of continuous experience in all facets of early-stage to advanced mineral exploration in all parts of the world.
Most recently, Mr. Baker played an important role in the discovery of the Rainy River gold deposit in northwestern Ontario. He was responsible for bringing the Rainy River Project to Rainy River Resources Ltd. in 2005, initially serving as President and CEO to June, 2009. During Mr. Baker’s tenure, Rainy River’s project grew from a grassroots exploration property to a project with indicated resources of 2.225 million ounces of gold and 3.375 million ounces of silver at a gold grade of 1.24 g/t as well as inferred resources of 1.807 million ounces of gold and 4.548 million ounces of silver at a gold grade of 0.88 g/t Au.
He has been active in the mineral exploration business for over 40 years, starting at age 14 as an assistant to his father, who was then prospecting at Hemlo, Ontario. He attended the Haileybury School of Mines where he received his Mining Technology Diploma (1964), followed by studies at the South Dakota School of Mines, from which he graduated with a B.Sc. in Geological Engineering (1968). He subsequently spent 14 years as a senior geologist with Esso Minerals Canada (Toronto) and another 15 years as an exploration consultant working in such well known Canadian gold mining districts as Hemlo, Red Lake, Timmins, Kirkland Lake and Casa Berardi. During this period, he was involved in the discovery and delineation of several mineral deposits in North America.
Mr. Baker has served as a geological consultant with Nelson W. Baker Geological Services Ltd., a private company, since 1984. In 2001, Mr. Baker joined Vancouver-based Hunter Dickinson Group as a mining project evaluator, working on programs in the Raglan area of Quebec and elsewhere. With the recovery in commodity markets, Mr. Baker left Hunter Dickinson in 2001 to found Rainy River Resources Ltd. (RR.TSX-V), where he served as a director and President and Chief Executive Officer from March 2005 to June 2009. In addition, he also serves on the boards of Temex Resources Corp.

About Mineral Mountain
Mineral Mountain intends to become a significant explorer and developer of precious metals with a particular focus on gold and silver. Our business model is based on a strong management team and strategic partnerships. Right from the onset, our strategy has been to build an experienced, well-balanced management team with expertise in finance, business management, exploration and later mining. Our strong management has led us to an initial solid financial position with a healthy treasury allowing us to grow the Company through exploration and project acquisitions.
Our 89,000 hectare Kootenay Arc Project, situated southeast of Revelstoke, British Columbia, is quickly emerging as a high-quality, very fertile setting to host a significant polymetallic +/- precious metal deposit. This underexplored part of the Kootenay Arc is also considered to be highly prospective for sediment-hosted gold deposits similar to those found in the Carlin Trend of Nevada.
