The Board of Southern Gold Ltd (ASX:SAU) has unveiled a number of strategic changes to the company’s executive team following the results of the recent AGM and retirement of Managing Director, Simon Mitchell.
Greg Boulton has been appointed as Interim Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the company, with effect from November 1, 2021.
The recently appointed Exploration Manager, Robert Smillie, arrived in Daejeon on October 15, 2021 and has commenced his induction period with a working permit in place.
Mr Smillie will work with Non-Executive Director, Doug Kirwin on geological and technical opportunities.
Mr Boulton said the harsh December and January winter period results in no drilling but will allow the team to continue assessing all priorities, resourcing, project generation, increased training for South Korean geologists and recruitment of expats.
Beejay Kim continues as an Executive Director based in Daejeon and is providing outstanding support and influence focusing on Government, Community, and employee relations.
In 2022 Mr Kim will increase his involvement in developing project generation and permitting.
Peter Bamford was reappointed a Director at last week’s AGM joining Greg Boulton, Michael Mc Neilly, Doug Kirwin and Beejay Kim as the skilled and experienced Board to drive Strategy and Corporate Governance.
A global recruitment firm continues to conduct a search process for the right candidate to lead Southern Gold’s strategy of gold exploration.
“My appointment as Interim CEO will be for a period as short as possible and will conclude as soon as we have in place a CEO with the right skills and experience to add Shareholder Value in Southern Gold,” Mr Boulton said.
