"I believe Lionsgold shall prove to be in an enviable position as the only AIM-quoted company with substantial exposure to India's mining industry, a market I know well and that I believe has massive potential over the coming years and decades,” Davies said. 

“I plan to help develop Liongold's opportunities inside and outside of India, and assist in the growth of their business model of combining the exploration and production of gold with initiatives for its retail application," he added.
