VANCOUVER, BC, Sept. 21, 2020 /CNW/ - GoldMining Inc. (the "Company" or "GoldMining") (TSX: GOLD) (OTCQX: GLDLF) is pleased to announce the appointment of Alastair Still as Executive Vice President, Chief Development Officer of GoldMining and as Director of Technical Services of its subsidiary, Gold Royalty Corp. ("Gold Royalty") effective October 1, 2020.
Garnet Dawson, CEO of GoldMining, commented: "With over 25 years industry experience including leadership roles with major gold miners, most recently as Director, Corporate Development with Newmont, Alastair will have an immediate impact at GoldMining, and we are excited to welcome him to the team. Alastair's diverse background with Agnico Eagle, Kinross Gold, Placer Dome, Goldcorp and Newmont in mine operations, project development and corporate development is the perfect mix of skills and experience as we seek to execute our two-pronged strategy of expanding our property portfolio of resource stage gold projects through accretive transactions and enhancing value and de-risking the portfolio through potential development, exploration, and value-driven divestures and joint ventures."
Alastair Still commented: "During the most recent bear market, the gold industry was forced into under-investment and it was during this tough period that GoldMining had the foresight to execute many of its acquisitions. As a result of its strategy, it has assembled an impressive portfolio of resource-stage gold and gold-copper projects in the Americas. With improving gold markets, I believe GoldMining is ideally positioned to now pursue organic growth opportunities and further accretive acquisitions. I am excited to be joining Garnet, Amir and the GoldMining team and to work with them to further enhance shareholder value."
