VANCOUVER, Oct. 31, 2011 /PRNewswire/ - Redtail Metals Corp. (TSX-V:RTZ) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has appointed Blair Shilleto as Chairman and John Legg as President. Mr. Shilleto and Mr. Legg both currently serve as directors of the Company.
Blair M. Shilleto
A mining and investment entrepreneur, Mr. Shilleto formed and led his own mine contract company in a joint venture capacity and was subsequently involved in the resource investment industry. Since 1976, Mr. Shiletto has managed projects for notable clients including Cameco Corporation, Canamax Resources and United Keno Hill Mines. Mr. Shilleto is currently a consultant to the mining industry and an advisor to the resource investment sector for European based resource asset managers. He was raised in Mayo, Yukon and is a member of the Na-cho Nyak Dun First Nation. Mr. Shilleto also serves as a Director for Golden Predator Corp. and Silver Predator Corp.
John W. Legg
Mr. Legg is the President and Director of Golden Predator Corp., and is the President and Managing Director of the Predator Group of Companies, of which Redtail is a member. Mr. Legg has over 15 years experience with public resource companies: from 1994 through 2006 Mr. Legg was a securities lawyer in private practice, advising companies in natural resources, securities and corporate finance law, and since 2006 has held several senior management positions in the industry. Mr. Legg is also a founder and serves as a Director of both Tigris Uranium Corp. and Silver Predator Corp.

To facilitate the appointments, William M. Sheriff has resigned as Chairman and Director and Michael O'Brien has been appointed Chief Financial Officer.
