Dominic Roberts to enter the Dragon

Black Dragon Gold (ASX:BDG) has appointed Dominic Roberts as Executive Chairman.

The appointment is one of several board and management changes including Paul Cronin moving from Non-Executive Chairman to Non-Executive Director and Gabriel Chiappini moving from Chief Executive Office/Managing Director to Non-Executive Director and Company Secretary.

Roberts has worked in the European mining sector for more than 15 years, permitting and building a number of underground mining operations, most notably Adriatic Metals (ASX:ADT) ‘world-class’ Vares silver mine.

Black Dragon says at Adriatic Metals he was instrumental in designing and implementing the company’s sustainability strategy that was validated in 2019, when the European Bank for Reconstruction & Development made a substantial equity investment.

Prior to Adriatic Metals Roberts ran a private mining company, operating four base metal underground mines in the Balkans and permitting 2 new mines.

Black Dragon Gold has a global portfolio of exploration assets. The company’s flagship project is Salave, one of the largest undeveloped gold projects in Europe.
