TORONTO, May 14, 2018 /CNW/ - Anaconda Mining Inc. ("Anaconda" or the "Company") – (TSX:ANX, OTCQX: ANXGF) is pleased to announce that Dustin Angelo, President and CEO of Anaconda, was recognized by Atlantic Business Magazine as one of Atlantic Canada's Top 50 CEOs for the third time. Mr. Angelo accepted his award in Halifax, Nova Scotia at an event hosted by Atlantic Business Magazine's publisher Hubert Hutton and emceed by "This Hour Has 22 Minutes" host Mark Critch.

"It was an honour to be in Halifax to receive the Top 50 CEO award and it's been great that Anaconda has been able to expand its presence in the Atlantic Canada region to Nova Scotia in the last year. We have made significant progress at our Goldboro Project and achieved some important value creating milestones. We recently published a positive Preliminary Economic Assessment, have seen exceptional results from our diamond drilling program, and will soon submit an Environmental Assessment application and begin a 10,000-tonne bulk sample. Our team has proven its ability to run a profitable and environmentally sustainable gold mine in Newfoundland and we intend to duplicate that success at Goldboro."
