We are very excited to announce the latest addition to Artisan’s executive team. Mike Mayhew

professional in the mining industry with more than 23 years of business development success. His
firsthand experience, comprehensive knowledge, and rock solid relationships add tremendous reach
to Artisan’s mission to transform underground mining. “The response from our current and future
customers has been remarkable. Mike’s extensive experience and respect throughout the industry
has already increased our order backlog. I am extremely impressed by Mike’s business
development skill set and even more impressed by his passion for the industry transformation we
foresee.” said Artisan’s CEO, Mike Kasaba.

Here is a partial list of mining companies with which Mike has extensive experience and maintains
an excellent reputation:
● Agnico Eagle

● Glencore INO
● Goldcorp
● Hudbay Minerals
● Kirkland Lake Gold
● LakeShore Gold
● Premier Gold / Greenstone
