Auriga Gold Appoints Gorden Glenn to the Board of Directors; Updates on Maverick Project Mine Site Progress
Auriga Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:AIA) announce that Gorden Glenn, B.Sc., has been appointed to the Board of Directors. Mr. Glenn brings over 20 years of financial markets experience including mining finance, M&A, major project valuation, and geological expertise to the Board of Directors.
Richard Sutcliffe, CEO, commented, "We are pleased to welcome Gorden Glenn to the board. Gord's well-rounded background, particularly in the financial community and as a geologist with experience in production financing, will be valued as we move Auriga's Maverick Gold Project from the development phase into production."
Since January 2012, when Auriga Gold completed a positive PEA on combined open pit and underground operations at Maverick Gold, the site and especially the 1,000 tpd mill have gone through a complete clean-up in preparation for the test mining program. The power line clearing and placement of poles are scheduled to be in place by the end of May in preparation for re-establishing power to the site. A local electrical contractor is currently refurbishing the 600 volt power supply in the mill. Currently, there are eight local community employees at the mine and a 20 person camp has been established in the town of Sherridon.
