Javier Cordova Unda, CEO of Canadian mining company Soma Gold Corp. (TSXV: SOMA), has stepped down as chief executive officer.
According to the company, this is expected to be a temporary move to “attend to personal matters,” and Cordova will continue in his roles as president and a director.
Executive chairman of Soma Gold’s board, C. Geoffrey Hampson, is acting as interim CEO of the Vancouver-based company, which owns two mining properties in Antioquia.
“The board of directors maintains full confidence and support for Mr. Cordova and will work with him to ensure continuity of management while he works through these matters,” said Hampson in a statement. “We look forward to his returning to his role as soon as possible.”
