“This change was in order to diversify the executive level skill set and add an additional layer of management expertise,” Lucky said in a statement.
Perron is chairman of Northern Superior Resources and a director of Goldstar Minerals Inc. He also served as CEO of QMX Gold Corporation and was previously the CEO of Golden Goose Resources.
The announcement was made ahead of the group’s annual general meeting held on September 15. In addition to the executive appointments, Lucky said it had received the audited consolidated financial statements for its fiscal year ended October 31, 2019 and approved the appointment of PriceWaterhouseCoopers LLP as auditors.
The company also approved a 10% rolling stock option plan and set the number of directors at six for the coming year. The board is now made up of Francois Perron, Adrian Rothwell, Robert Rosner, Paul Pint, Blake Hylands, and Shaun Dykes.
Lucky owns a 100% interest in the Fortuna project in Ecuador and the Emigrant project in Montana.
