Canadian mining company Continental Gold Inc. today elected nine directors at its annual meeting. All of the nominees, who were previously listed in the Toronto-based firm’s management information circular on April 26, were approved while receiving at least 99.8% of the vote, according to a filing by Continental Gold.
The full list of directors now includes: Leon Teicher, Ari Sussman, Martín Carrizosa, James Gallagher, Claudia Jiménez, Paul Murphy, Christopher Sattler, Kenneth Thomas, and Timothy Warman.
During the same meeting, Continental Gold also reappointed PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as the company’s auditor. The London-based big four auditing firm will continue to be retained for this duty until at least the next general meeting, said the mining company in a statement.
Continental Gold maintains at least two holdings in Colombia. The firm’s largest is its wholly owned 70,000-hectare Buriticá project in the department of Antioquia, which the firm’s feasibility study has found may hold up to 3.7 million ounces of gold.
The company also operates the 48,000-hectare Berlin project, a site located about 50 miles north of Medellín that dates back nearly 90 years and “displays high potential for the discovery of multiple mineralized quartz veins and lodes,” according to Continental Gold.
