June 1, 2021 – Las Vegas, Nevada – El Capitan Precious Metals, Inc. (OTC/QB: ECPN) Chairman Doug Sanders confirmed today that the Company has retained A. Blair Dunn, Esq. as its Corporate Counsel.

Dunn is a founding partner of Western Agriculture, Resource and Business Advocates, LLP and has served as the General Counsel and Director of Agricultural Policy for the South Dakota Department of Agriculture, as well as the Chief Legal Counsel for the New Mexico water rights brokerage firm of WaterBank. Sanders believes that Dunn, who grew up on farms and ranches in Southern New Mexico and holds an undergraduate degree in Geology, is well suited, both professionally and personally, to represent El Capitan’s interests.

According to Sanders, who worked with Dunn when WARBA was retained by the El Capitan Board several years ago, Dunn’s firm is among the most qualified and knowledgeable in the business, related to mining and land management. “We are fortunate that Blair’s history with El Capitan gives him the perspective to see the big picture related to the future of El Capitan and we thank him for his willingness to continue work on our behalf, in spite of the fact that El Capitan is delinquent on payments to his firm.” Sanders and Dunn have reached an agreement that encompasses both new work on behalf of El Capitan and satisfying outstanding obligations.

Sanders added: “We are at a pivotal point in the history of El Capitan and it’s imperative that we have a strong team of  professionals guiding and protecting the Company. I’m proud to count Blair among them.”
