Elixir Petroleum Ltd (ASX:EXR) chief executive officer Neil Young speaks to Proactive Investors about the gas explorer's recent appointment of Richard Cottee as non-executive chairman.
Young says Cottee is considered a "godfather" of coal seam gas in Queensland, leading QGC from a 20 million market-cap company with a share price of 20 cents through to its acquisition by British Gas for nearly $6 billion and 6$ a share.
He notes this has "huge resonance with our own position of possessing an early-stage but highly-prospective and well-located coal seam gas block just north of China in Mongolia."
The company has started early-stage exploration activities in Mongolia, including government approvals, and expects Cottee's background and skills to assist in delivering an asset that gives the most value to shareholders.
