TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / December 16, 2019 / AEX Gold Inc. (“AEX” or the “Corporation” – TSXV:AEX), announces today that George Fowlie has been appointed as the new CFO of AEX effective immediately. He has been a director of AEX since its founding in 2017.
George has enjoyed a successful 40-year career in banking and finance, including 10 years as an Investment Banker with First Marathon Securities and four years as a partner at Edgestone Capital Partners, a $1Billion private equity fund where he managed the mezzanine fund. From there, he joined Westwind Partners Inc. as Head of Investment Banking, overseeing a team of 12 bankers in Toronto, Calgary and London focused on the natural resources sector, both in oil & gas and mining. George and his partners ultimately sold Westwind to Thomas Weisel Partners in early 2008. He subsequently set up his own consulting company to manage private company investments and advise other companies through capital raising and M&A mandates. George has a BA from the University of Toronto and an MBA from the University of Western Ontario.
Eldur Olafsson, Founder and Chief Executive Office of AEX Gold, commented:
“As we progress toward recommencing operations at the past producing Nalunaq mine, the task of financing this vision demands the attention of a full time CFO with capital markets and banking experience. George’s experience and knowledge of the Canadian and UK capital markets, plus an intimate knowledge of AEX, made him a natural choice to fill that role and will ensure a smooth transition.
I would like to thank Ingrid Martin for her significant contribution to AEX as CFO since the Corporation went public on the TSXV in June 2017. Ingrid is a highly valued member of the team, and we look forward to continue working with her through her professional services company, which will continue to provide financial accounting services to the Corporation.”

I look forward to working closely with Eldur and the rest of the management team as they continue to develop the business and create stakeholder value over the coming years.”

The Corporation’s principal asset is a 100% interest in the Nalunaq gold project, an advanced exploration stage property with an exploitation licence including the previously operating Nalunaq gold mine, which hosts a high-grade National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101”) compliant gold Inferred Mineral Resource estimate of 263 thousand ounces of gold (Koz) at a grade of 18.7 g/t (SRK Exploration, March 2017) and a number of near mine and regional exploration targets.
