John Black, CEO of Regulus, commented as follows: “When Jason took the position of CEO at Gold Standard Ventures in December 2020, we were disappointed to learn that he would have to step down from the Regulus Board in order to conform with governance guidelines for CEOs serving on outside boards. We are fortunate, however, to welcome Michael to the Regulus Board in Jason’s place. Michael’s extensive experience in both finance and operations will benefit the Company as we continue to advance the AntaKori project. I would like to personally thank Jason for his time on our Board and welcome Michael to our team.”
