Meeka Gold Ltd management changes take effect; will advance the company’s gold and rare earth assets

Meeka Gold Ltd (ASX:MEK) has appointed Paul Chapman as chairman with immediate effect, bidding farewell to Tim Moore whose “decade of valuable service” has left the company in a strong position.

Chapman is an experienced and highly regarded leader in the mining industry, recognized for guiding companies through development and production.

Founding shareholder of several ASX-listers

He has a demonstrable track record of building highly successful gold businesses, having been chairman and founding shareholder of a number of ASX listed companies and guiding companies from listing, exploration, development and production.

Chapman has extensive experience in multiple products and jurisdictions having operated in Australia and the United States. His experience will be critical to advancing the company’s gold and rare earth assets.

The new chairman is a long-term investor in Meeka, owns 5 million shares and is well aligned with shareholders.

CEO Tim Moore retires

In addition to Chapman’s appointment to the board, CEO Tim Davidson has been named chief executive, effective today, following the retirement of director and chairman Tim Moore.

The company said Moore’s decision was prompted by a desire to ensure the appropriate level of mining industry experience on the board as the company progresses with mine development studies.

Invaluable Leadership

Commenting on the changes, non-executive director Roger Steinepreis said: “On behalf of the board, management and shareholders, I would like to thank Tim for his contribution to the business over the past decade.

“Tim has helped us through tough times and leaves the company in a strong position.

“We also welcome Paul Chapman to the board. Paul is a well-known and well-respected business executive with extensive experience building companies in the resource sector. His leadership will be invaluable as we advance the company’s gold and rare earth assets. »
