The gold company, which has a portfolio of exploration licences in Greenland, said James Gilbertson has been appointed as Vice President - Exploration. Gilbertson, who has been working with AEX as a consultant for six years, will oversee all of the company's exploration activities.
He has over 20 years of experience in mineral exploration and resource development, including 17 years as a principal exploration geologist, and until recently, as managing director of SRK Exploration. He specialises in mineral exploration design, planning and management, specifically for lode and epithermal gold deposits, porphyry related, and orthomagmatic deposits. Gilbertson is a chartered and competent person (CP) with the Geological Society London.
"I am delighted to announce the addition of James to our senior management team. He brings an important skill-set to the company at an exciting time in our development,” commented AEX CEO Eldur Olafsson.
AEX said its exploration team has been further boosted with the appointment of three additional exploration geologists: Jane Lund Plesner, Jascha Wille and Aaju Simonsen.
Simonsen, a Greenlander, has experience in arctic field geology in various minerals for more than 10 years, while Wille, a Danish national, has worked previously in open-pit production in Greenland and in exploration and geotechnical logging in Canada and Sweden.
Plesner, also a Greenlander, is a newly qualified geologist who previously worked as a multibeam operator at the Greenland Institute of Natural Resources.
