Their diverse skill sets and experiences in the mining sector and capital markets will assist the Company in the continued development and financing of the Bomboré mine. The Company also wishes to thank both Tim and Joe for their long service and contributions made to the Company over the last several years, and wishes them well in their future endeavours.
