HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA – September 29, 2022
Antler Gold Inc. (“Antler” or the “Company”) (TSX-V:ANTL) is pleased to announce that it has appointed Christopher Drysdale as Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) effective immediately. Mr. Drysdale replaces Daniel Whittaker, who will assume the position of Executive Chairman.
This appointment will allow Antler to continue building and expanding on its business. In March 2022, Antler announced that it had entered into an agreement with Sherpa Resource Holdings Ltd to form a new corporation, the “Project Generator”, to generate exploration opportunities and projects.
Mr. Whittaker stated, “Chris has played a critical role in the growth of Antler in Africa, assembling our outstanding team, finding and negotiating new acquisitions and directing our exploration programs. This new role is a recognition of his contribution and I look forward to working with him closely in the future, particularly on the Onkoshi projects and others.”
Mr. Drysdale added, “I appreciate the opportunity to lead Antler as the Company continues to explore its current projects and develop its growing exploration portfolio that is geared for discovery. The Company is looking to create a long-term business model that has a varied offering, whilst providing stakeholders with exposure to the potential of discovery and exploration ventures. We are exceptionally well-positioned for growth, and I look forward to building on the strong foundation that Dan and the Antler team have managed to build over the years.”
