Noricum Gold Limited, the European focused base and precious metals resource development company, is pleased to announce that it has appointed Neil O'Brien and Peter Damouni to its Board of Directors as Non-Executive Directors with immediate effect.

Dr. O'Brien also has several years of experience as a director on the board of junior exploration companies and extensive international experience in all stages of mineral exploration and development of base metal projects. He is a Canadian and British citizen, residing in Canada.

Peter Damouni has over 15 years of experience in investment banking and capital markets with expertise in the natural resource sector. Throughout his career, Mr. Damouni has led and worked on equity and debt financings valued over $5 billion and has experience in equity financings, restructurings, corporate valuations and advisory assignments.   Mr. Damouni is a Director of Kerr Mines Inc, a TSX listed gold mining company and a Director of Silvergate Capital Partners.  Mr. Damouni is a graduate of McGill University, Canada.  He is a Canadian and British citizen, residing in the United Kingdom.

In addition, Jeremy Whybrow and Marcus Edwards-Jones have stepped down from the Board today.

 

Noricum Gold Managing Director Greg Kuenzel said, "I'm very pleased to welcome both Neil and Peter to the Board and believe that their appointments will significantly strengthen our management team as we look to advance our multiple gold and copper projects in Georgia. Neil brings a wealth of experience in the sector from exploration through to development and production. His PhD focussed on the unique VMS style of mineralisation similar to that found at Bolnisi so his insight will be invaluable as we progress the projects. Peter's extensive corporate knowledge and experience in investment banking and capital markets will provide support to the board as we continue to advance our projects in Georgia with a view to creating significant value for shareholders."

 

"Jeremy and Marcus's commitment to the Company since its formation has been significant and has helped us to deliver the exciting milestones that we have reported to date.  I appreciate it very much and wish them well in their future endeavours.
