The firm aiming to create Scotland’s first commercial gold mine has made two key appointments.
David Swan, who has acted as finance director of several exploration and mining companies in Australia and the UK has been named chief financial officer of Scotgold Resources, the Aim-quoted miner.
The firm, which is developing plans for its Cononish site within the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, also said Australian chartered accountant Gabriel Chiappini has succeeded Peter Newcomb as company secretary.
Scotgold chairman Nat le Roux said: “David has had previous experience with project finance and capital raisings and will be of tremendous value to the company as we pursue this next phase of our development.
“Gabriel has over 20 years’ experience as a finance and governance professional and brings strong commercial knowledge together with governance management to the company. We have very much appreciated the contribution and support that Peter Newcomb has provided over the past many years in his role as company secretary.”
