Dear Jim,

 

After serious consideration, I have decided to leave Viking Energy Group, Inc., and hereby resign from all positions with the company. I have enjoyed working with you and the rest of the team, but the time has come for me to pursue other interests. I sincerely wish you and the company all the best in your future endeavors and confirm that my resignation is not related to any disagreement with the company.
