"I am delighted that Andrew Cheatle has joined the Board. Following the dual listing on the TSX on 15thJanuary 2018, it is important to have a Canadian based Director to add gravitas and effect introductions in Canada. Andrew until recently held a high-profile position as the Executive Director of Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada (PDAC), the trade body representing both exploration companies and producers. He has lived in Canada for 18 years and worked in senior positions at Goldcorp, AMEC plc, Treasury Metals, and Unigold Inc. I look forward to working with Andrew to enhance shareholder value and deliver on the strategy of permitting a new mine at Mina La India, Nicaragua and proving a substantially bigger gold district."
