Japan Gold Corp (CVE:JG) updated shareholders Wednesday on the results of its recently held annual general meeting, which saw the exploration company appoint exploration manager Takashi Kuriyama as senior officer.
Kuriyama is a 42-year veteran of Sumitomo Metal Mining Co Ltd, serving in increasingly senior roles such as executive vice president of the company’s American subsidiary and managing director of Sumitomo Metal Mining Oceania Pty Ltd.
The career geologist joined Japan Gold in 2017 as general manager responsible for overseeing the company’s exploration activities in Japan.
Vancouver-based Japan Gold has been steadily acquiring new gold projects in the Asian nation, including a recent transaction for five new gold projects spanning 21,000 hectares on the island of Kyushu.
The explorer also told shareholders that all resolutions had passed at its annual general meeting held in Vancouver earlier this month, re-electing its board of directors and fixing the number of seats at the table at seven.
Ernst & Young LLP was reappointed as the company’s auditor for the coming year and the stock option plan was also approved.
Shares of Japan Gold dipped in early Toronto trading, down 2% at C$0.25.
