Kaizen Discovery appoints prominent mineral exploration veteran Kuang Ine Lu to its Board of Directors
VANCOUVER, CANADA - Kaizen Discovery (TSXV: KZD) today announced the appointment of Dr. Kuang Ine Lu to the company's Board of Directors, effective immediately.

Dr. Lu, who is based in North Vancouver, has advised the Vancouver office of Japan Oil, Gas and Metals National Corporation (JOGMEC) on its research and assessments of exploration projects since 2003. JOGMEC is a Japanese government entity with a mandate to seek a stable supply of natural resources for Japan's industrial sector.

He has more than 50 years of mineral exploration and evaluation experience in Asia, the Middle East, North and South America and Indonesia, and holds a Ph.D. in Economic Geology from the University of Tokyo. He directed the discoveries of the Formosa massive sulfide deposit in the U.S.; the placer gold zone south of Peter's Mine in Guyana; the Jason South lead-zinc zone in Canada; and the Lucky gold deposit at the Chinkaushih Mine in Taiwan.

"We are pleased to welcome Dr. Lu to the Kaizen board and look forward to his guidance and advice based on his successful career in international mineral exploration, project appraisal and corporate leadership," said Kaizen President and Chief Executive Officer Matthew Hornor.

"The contributions from Dr. Lu and our other experienced board members will be key as we work with Japanese partners to identify and explore prospective, high-quality mineral projects and, where appropriate, to deploy our leading-edge exploration technology."
