In connection with the appointment and engagement of Mr. Olaiya, the Company announces the commencement of an initiative to develop Company policies and a manual relating to ESG issues.
Mr. Olaiya has gained valuable experience as an ESG professional through his past roles with AngloGold Ashanti Ltd and Stadlerre Renewable Energy Ltd. He holds a MBA in Project Management and Bachelor of Business Management & Administration.
Branden Haynes, CEO of Hawkmoon, states “Mr. Olaiya’s appointment to the board and our ESG initiative is a great first step in addressing our collective will to ensure our corporate philosophy and operational plans serve to mitigate project impacts on the environment and climate change. We aim to achieve this goal by taking into account local feedback and participation, indigenous concerns and participation, project benefits, safety and satisfaction.”
Mr. Olaiya notes “Finding the best way to operationalize concepts to address issues encompassed within ESG is important for all exploration and mining companies. My aim is that the initiative to develop Company policies and a manual related to ESG issues will evolve over the foreseeable future, in particular, addressing the needs and concerns of local indigenous groups and communities directly affected by the Company’s projects and de-risking both short- and long- term goals and objectives of the Company.”
Hawkmoon is focused on junior stage project acquisitions across Canada. One of these projects is located in one of the world’s largest gold endowed areas, the Abitibi Greenstone Belt. The Wilson Gold Project can be accessed by government-maintained roads and are in close proximity to each other east of the town of Lebel-sur-Quévillon. The company has recently acquired the Barriere and Gilnockie projects in British Columbia.
