Although the process was not sufficiently advanced when the Company mailed the information circular for the annual meeting, the Company has been considering the addition of a director with strong financial and corporate governance credentials. Less than two weeks before the AGM, the Board's nominating committee recommended Don Siemens, who has an impressive finance and governance background. Following the AGM, the Board resolved to increase the number of directors to seven and it appointed Mr. Siemens to the newly created vacancy.

Mr. Siemens specializes in corporate finance, cross-border transactions and mergers & acquisitions as an independent financial advisor. Mr. Siemens brings over 30 years of experience as a Chartered Accountant, including 8 years in public practice as a partner with major accounting firms, 8 years in senior executive positions in the industry and 18 years as a self-employed financial services executive. He currently serves as a director for five additional public companies: Hansa Resources Limited, Nikos Explorations Ltd, Goldgroup Mining Inc., Boss Power Corp and Spur Ventures Inc. Previously, Mr. Siemens was Partner-in-Charge of Thorne Ernst & Whinney's (now KPMG) Vancouver office Financial Advisory Services group. Mr. Siemens obtained a Chartered Accountant designation in 1972, and a B.A. from the University of British Columbia.

"I look forward to working with Mr. Siemens. His finance background, not to speak of his experience with public companies, rounds out our already highly experienced Board. Additionally, we expect that his in-depth knowledge and experience in mergers and acquisitions can add significant value to our continuing discussions with Austral Gold Limited," commented Michael Brown, CEO and President.
