“Ms. Caldwell St-Onge brings extensive government affairs and sustainability experience to the board, and her guidance will prove valuable as Teranga continues to grow while maintaining its reputation as a responsible gold producer and sharing the long-term sustainable benefits of mining with the communities our operations touch,” said Alan Hill, Chairman of the Board. “Today we are also saying farewell to two long-standing board members, Christopher R. Lattanzi and Edward Goldenberg, whom did not stand for re-election this year as we progress on a gradual and thoughtful refreshment to the composition of the board. We thank Mr. Lattanzi and Mr. Goldenberg for their years of service to Teranga’s development over the past 10 and 7 years, respectively.”
