Mariana Resources appoints new director to support Canadian exposure

South America-focused gold miner Mariana Resources (LON:MARL, TSX:MRY) has appointed J. Christopher Mitchell as a new non-executive director to its board.

The move is designed to complement the company’s strategy of bolstering its exposure in Canada after the firm’s recent listing on the Toronto Stock Exchange.

Mitchell is a Vancouver-based financial adviser to listed companies active in the mineral exploration and production arena. During his 40-year career, he has served in senior executive positions with several listed mining companies and he currently serves as chief financial officer of several TSX Venture Exchange-listed companies and as a non-executive director of three junior mineral exploration companies.

These companies include Endurance Gold Corporation, First Point Minerals Corporation and Skyline Gold Corporation.

"His specific industry and Canadian experience will be invaluable to Mariana following our listing on TSX and as we look towards expansion of our Las Calandrias gold-silver resources in Argentina,” said Mariana’s chairman, John Horsburgh.

Mariana’s shares began trading on the TSX in mid-June. The decision to list there was taken in order to “give the company wider access to the increased institutional and retail shareholder following in the North American markets”, said Horsburgh at the time.

Mariana is focused on gold and copper-gold prospects in Chile, Argentina and elsewhere in South America. The firm’s strategy is to seek underexplored areas with potential for high-grade polymetallic gold mineralisation.
