The new executive holds a number of board appointments and works as an advisor to major mining companies through her consulting business, Shared Resources Pty Ltd.
Wall’s appointment comes as Toronto-based Royal Road works on advancing its mineral projects in Colombia and Nicaragua.

In her previous role as director, Liz maintained "crucial oversight" of the company's policies relating to its sustainability commitments in both Colombia and Nicaragua, Coughlin told shareholders.
"Now, as our projects advance to the resource stage and in anticipation of accelerated exploration activity throughout our extensive land package, we are excited to have Liz more involved in the management and direction of the company's social and environmental initiatives."
