Gambier Gold Corp. Announces Results of Annual General
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 01, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Gambier Gold Corp. (TSX.V: GGAU) (“Gambier” or the “Company”) announces effective immediately, a change of the Board of Directors and management of the Company. As a result of the Annual General Meeting held on June 1, 2022 (the “Annual Meeting”), Gambier’s shareholders have overwhelmingly supported the transition in favour of replacing the existing board. A total of approximately 23,600,000 common shares, representing approximately 51% of the issued and outstanding common shares of the Company, were represented at the Annual Meeting.
Daniel Rodriguez, CEO, commented: “With the AGM now complete, I would like to thank all the shareholders that supported this transition. All your votes helped confirm that change was needed. We will continue to be transparent and communicate with everyone. Gambier has an amazing portfolio of properties and a new team committed to uncovering its value. Our focus will be to get back to exploring and unlocking shareholder value.”
Felix Grabher, Executive Director of FruchtExpress Grabher GmbH & Co KG and approximately 18.926% shareholder of Gambier, commented, “There are certain times and events when shareholders must rise up, speak out publicly and stand up for their rights, with all available means. This is especially true for large shareholders, who we believe also have a responsibility to smaller shareholders, at least some of whom are driven by the same desire to move the Company forward.”
Felix Grabher further states, “Exploration is as risky as it is fascinating and it is not possible without a plan, a common goal and trust among all the actors involved. At Gambier, all these things once existed. We are convinced that the new team can lead Gambier back on a promising path. Not only with the right projects, but also with communication and transparency that all shareholders equally deserve. Many thanks to everyone who has supported us over the past months with ideas, expertise, encouragement and now also with their votes at the AGM. And now to the new Gambier team get to work, there is so much to do.”
