Dr. Norwich states: "My driving spirit is to help small gold companies become large ones and I am excited at the opportunity to engage with my new colleagues at Asante to expand and develop in the near term what I believe to be very prospective gold assets".
On behalf of the Board, we heartily welcome Dr. Norwich to assist us in our growth in this new 2020 bull gold market. We also take this opportunity to extend our sincere wishes that all our shareholders, employees and their families remain healthy and safe in these difficult times.
