4 min read

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – April 3, 2024) – Cabral Gold Inc. (TSXV: CBR) (OTC Pink: CBGZF) (“Cabral” or the Company“) is pleased to announce that it has appointed Mr. Brian Arkell as Vice President Exploration and Technical Services, effective immediately.

Alan Carter, Cabral’s President and CEO commented, “We are both excited and fortunate to have Brian join our team. We believe his extensive experience with gold exploration and, in particular, mine development and operations, will be invaluable as we advance the current pre-feasibility study aimed at mining and heap-leach processing the extensive gold-in-saprolite material at our Cuiú Cuiú project. Brian’s appointment is part of our planned transition from a junior exploration company to a junior gold producer, and his previous experience with Newmont Mining augers well for the longer-term objective of defining the extensive gold endowment of the Cuiú Cuiú district. To date Cabral has discovered and delineated two main gold deposits with NI 43-101 compliant resources, made two additional significant gold discoveries that require more drilling prior to defining resources, and defined 43 high-quality exploration targets with gold showing in drill holes, trenches and surface boulders.”

Mr. Arkell studied geology and engineering at the University of Maryland (B.S.) and the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology (M.S.). He has 35 years of experience in exploration, mine development, and operations throughout the Americas and in Indonesia. He has played a key role in several major gold discoveries and mine development projects including the world-class Yanacocha gold mine in Peru, the Batu Hijau copper-gold mine in Indonesia, the Merian gold mine in Suriname and the Magino gold mine in Canada.

From 2018 to 2023 Mr. Arkell served as Vice President Exploration and Mine Technical Services for Argonaut Gold, a mid-tier gold producer. During this time, he was responsible for all exploration, mine planning, mine geology, corporate reserves, and corporate land departments. This involved five gold mines and several projects, ranging from scoping through feasibility-level stages. Prior to that, he was CEO for Caza Gold Corp., Senior Vice President Exploration and Corporate Development for Rio Novo Gold, Inc., and spent 22 years with Newmont Mining Corp. where he held a variety of positions, including Director of Geology and Exploration, South America.

Mr. Arkell is a Registered Member of SME, a Fellow of AusIMM, and a Fellow of the Society of Economic Geologists. He is a Qualified Person (QP) under Canadian National Instrument 43-101 Standards, as well as a Competent Person under Australian JORC Code.

Mr. Arkell replaces Guillermo (“Willie”) Hughes who retired from the role of VP Exploration with Cabral effective March 31, 2024. Both the management team and the Board of Directors wish to thank Willie for his invaluable contribution to the exploration and development of the Cuiú Cuiú project and wish him a very happy and well-deserved retirement.
