Lakeland Resources TSXV:LK management added more mining and exploration expertise with the December 11 appointment of Sam Wong as chief financial officer. Currently CFO of Lowell Copper TSXV:JDL and Chesapeake Gold TSXV:CKG, Wong has also served as corporate controller at Luna Gold TSX:LGC, where he oversaw the finance division during Luna’s transition from development to commercial production. Wong articled as a chartered accountant at Deloitte & Touche LLP, where he specialized in assurance and advisory for mining companies.
In a statement accompanying the announcement, Lakeland president/CEO Jonathan Armes said Wong brings “strength in financial reporting, strategic planning, corporate governance, equity financings, due diligence for acquisitions and corporate development to our growing team. His attention to detail and in running a tight ship will be another strong asset for Lakeland as we advance as an up-and-coming leader in the Athabasca Basin.”
The appointment follows a flurry of recent news from the uranium explorer, which includes the appointment of Canon Bryan to the company’s advisory board, a joint venture with Declan Resources TSXV:LAN that accelerates Lakeland’s winter drill plans, another JV with Star Minerals Group TSXV:SUV that expands Lakeland’s portfolio and the publication of a research report by Zimtu Capital TSXV:ZC research and communications officer Derek Hamill.
