Reunion Gold’s (RGD) President and CEO, Réjean Gourde, is taking an unexpected and temporary leave of absence from his duties.

His sudden departure is reportedly so that he can address some personal health issues which were recently discovered. 

Reunion Gold’s Executive Chair, David Fennell, commented briefly on Réjean’s temporary departure from the company.

“Mr Gourde’s illness was unexpected. We wish him all the best as he recovers,” David said.

In light of the circumstances, Reunion Gold has appointed Carlos Bertoni as the company’s Acting CEO, for the indefinite duration of Réjean’s absence. 

Carlos is a veteran executive within the mining industry, with over 40 years of experience under his belt. 

He worked for TSX-listed miner, Golden Star Resources (GSC), between 1989 and 2003, and managed the exploration of key projects. These projects included Omai in Guyana, Gross Rosebel in Suriname, and Paul Isnard (Montagne d’Or), Yaou, and Dorlin in French Guiana.

From 2001 to 2003, Carlos was President and CEO of a Golden Star Resources subsidiary, followed by President and CEO of Northern Mining Explorations from 2003 to 2006.

As a professional geoscientist, Carlos has been a technical advisor to Reunion Gold since 2012. In his new role as Acting CEO, he will be supported by David Fennell and the company’s management team.

There is currently no way to say how long Carlos will be Acting CEO for, as the length of Réjean’s leave will depend on his health and medical progress going forward.

Reunion Gold remains unchanged and is currently trading for C$0.10 per share, as of 10:57am EST.
