The AIM-listed firm said its CEO Craig Brown has been in Australia with Jones over the past few weeks, and arrangements are being made for the transfer of his responsibilities.
Brown commented: “I would like to thank Ivor Jones for his service to ECR over the past year. We wish him well in his future endeavours.”
He added: “Having spent the last few weeks in Australia with Ivor, I remain excited about the potential of ECR’s licences in Central Victoria, and look forward to updating the market as we move ahead with our exploration plans in this prolific gold producing region.”
ECR also said its subsidiary Mercator Gold Australia has appointed Rodney Boucher, an experienced Victoria-based geologist to oversee its ongoing gold exploration activities in Central Victoria on a consulting basis.
Boucher has extensive exploration experience in Victoria, including many years of involvement with Perseverance Corporation, the developers of the million-ounce Fosterville gold mine which is now owned by Kirkland Lake Gold.
The Fosterville mine is located in the same district as MGA’s Bailieston and Moormbool gold projects.
