The Vancouver-based mineral explorer announced that president Michael Andrews and executive vice president John Carlile have resigned to pursue other opportunities.
Meanwhile, Rafaela Vartuli is joining the firm as its new corporate communications manager, the company said.
Japan Gold’s CEO and chairman John Proust will take on Andrews’ duties as president and COO for the time being, the group added.
“The company would like to thank Dr. Andrews and Mr. Carlile for their roles as officers and looks forward to their continuing contributions as directors of Japan Gold,” the firm said in a statement.
Japan Gold recently added highly experienced geologist Paul Harbidge to its board of advisors.
He was senior VP of Exploration at Goldcorp Inc from 2016 until its acquisition by Newmont Mining Corp (NYSE:NEM) in April 2019.
