Azumah’s non-executive chairman Michael Atkins said: “Managing director Stephen Stone and myself wish to pay a very special tribute to Geoff Jones for his considerable and constructive contribution to the company this past nine years, and especially his invaluable guidance on African project development.

“With Azumah’s Wa Gold Project in Ghana accelerating towards a development and financing decision in 2019 we have opted to make two new appointments and are extremely pleased to welcome highly experienced banking and project financier, Debra Bakker, and mining consultant and private equity adviser, Linton Putland to the Azumah board”

“We look forward to them playing critical roles in the company’s growth and to its innovative partnership with private equity group, Ibaera Capital.”
