Vancouver, British Columbia – July 6, 2021 – Gold Royalty Corp. (“GRC” or the “Company”) (NYSE American: GROY) is pleased to announce the appointment of Samuel Mah as Vice President, Evaluations of the Company.
John Griffith, Chief Development Officer of GRC commented: "With over two decades of industry experience, including leadership roles with both royalty and streaming as well as operating companies, Samuel will have an immediate impact at GRC. Samuel adds to the already unparalleled technical depth of our board and management with 300 years of collective sector experience. It is also an opportune time to add further technical bench strength following the recently announced transaction to merge with Ely Gold Royalties Inc. (“ELY”) (TSX-V: ELY) as we combine a peer leading portfolio of approximately 100 precious metals royalties in the Americas with one of the most liquid, debt-free balance sheets among our peer group.”
Samuel Mah commented: “I am pleased to be joining the GRC team at this exciting phase of growth for the Company. Looking beyond the successful IPO, strong balance sheet and combination with ELY, the Company has a peer leading resource endowment coupled with a robust development pipeline to provide significant organic growth now and into the future. I look forward to capitalizing on the strong balance sheet and capital markets presence to further enhance the portfolio and to continue to grow net asset value per share for our stakeholders”
Mr. Mah has more than 24 years of experience in the mining industry comprised of a unique blend of senior / junior producers (such as SSR Mining, Great Panther Mining, Goldcorp and Placer Dome - now Barrick Gold), mine consulting firms (such as AMEC Americas and SRK Consulting) and the first metal streaming company, Silver Wheaton (now Wheaton Precious Metals). Over the past decade, Mr. Mah has leveraged his experience gained from conducting the technical appraisal and due diligence reviews for over 350 projects and mines across 43 countries to improve his track record of M&A success.
Mr. Mah is a Registered Professional Engineer and holds a Bachelor of Applied Science in Mining and Mineral Process Engineering, and a Master of Applied Science degree, both from the University of British Columbia.
Mr. Mah has also been appointed as Director, Engineering Studies for GoldMining Inc. (“GoldMining”) (TSX: GOLD; NYSE American: GLDG) where he will play an integral role in the planned advancement of GoldMining’s extensive portfolio of gold and gold-copper projects in the Americas.
