Prospect generator firm Renaissance Gold Inc (CVE:REN) said Robert Felder has been named as chief executive as well as his role as president following an annual general and special shareholder meeting on November 14.
Ronald Parratt will remain as executive chairman, the group added.
"Since RenGold acquired Kinetic Gold on May 29, 2017, and Bob Felder was appointed president, he has clearly demonstrated the strengths and judgment we expected from him in his abilities involving technical issues, corporate and exploration management, and interpersonal skills working not only with RenGold staff but importantly with industry partners," said Parratt.
Shareholders also voted in favour of adopting the company's 10% rolling stock option plan.
Renaissance Gold is a Western US-focused prospect generator using a joint venture business model. It is a spin-out of AuEx Ventures Inc, the discoverer of the Long Canyon gold deposit in Nevada, now in production by Newmont Mining.
