 JUNEAU, Alaska, Oct. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Clifford J. Davis has been elected vice president with responsibility for the Alaska development properties of Echo Bay Mines Ltd. (Toronto, AMEX: ECO), one of the largest gold producers in North America, it was announced by Richard C. Kraus, president.
 Davis, 50, will be based in Juneau, where Echo Bay is developing the Alaska-Juneau and Kensington mines. Both projects are awaiting the issuance of final permits.
 Davis is returning to Juneau, where he served as general manager of the Greens Creek mine, operated by Kennecott Corp., from 1989 until it closed earlier this year. Since leaving Juneau, where he was active in the community, he served as general manager of Kennecott's Ridgeway Mine in Ridgeway, S.C. He has nearly 30 years of experience in mining and mine development in Portugal, England, Ireland and Ghana.
 He was born in England and educated at the Royal School of Mines in London, where he received a Bachelor of Science degree in Mining Engineering.
 Kraus said, "Echo Bay is fortunate to have a mining executive of Cliff Davis' experience in building and operating major mines around the world. He knows Alaska well, and should be a most effective senior manager for us in getting these mines permitted, built and running right."
 Davis said, "I am delighted to join the Echo Bay team and to be able to move back to Juneau. The Alaska-Juneau mine was one of the world's great gold mines in the first half of this century. It can be and will be again an important contributor to the community of Juneau and to the economy of the entire region. The Kensington joint venture also offers significant potential to Echo Bay, its partner, and the southeastern Alaska economy."
 Davis will report to Robert C. Armstrong, executive vice president - operations. Davis succeeds Gregory B. Sparks, who has elected to return to Durango, Colo. from Juneau to establish a private consulting practice. He will serve as a consultant to Echo Bay. "When Greg Sparks elected to establish his consulting business," said Echo Bay President Kraus, "he recommended Cliff Davis to succeed him in Juneau. Greg has made a substantial contribution to the development of both the Alaska-Juneau and the Kensington projects, and we look forward to his continued involvement in those and other projects on a consulting basis."
