As such, we are delighted to be appointed to assist GMOW and its project partner Alba Mineral Resources plc to redevelop the Clogau Gold Project."
Alba Executive Chairman George Frangeskides commented: "We are very pleased indeed to have secured the support of a firm of the international renown of SRK to assist us and Project operator GMOW as we take the Clogau Gold Project forward in the coming months and years. This is doubly the case as SRK has such a close connection with Wales. Clogau is a project with a very special place in the heritage of the United Kingdom and specifically in Wales, and as such it is important to us to have the support as many relevant stakeholders in Wales as possible we seek to take the Project forward."
