They replaced Ms. Sara Heston, who completed a term of six years, the latter two years as Chair of the Board.

Outgoing Board Chair Heston said, “It has been an honor and a pleasure to work with an organization so dedicated to the growth and success of the mining industry. I have enjoyed working with Tim, Julie, and the board and leave knowing DGG is well positioned financially and strategically to continue delivering on its mission.”

Mr. Denbow is a private investor, independent director, and advisor with 29 years of capital markets experience, most recently after 22 years at USAA Investment Management Company.

Incoming Chair Denbow said, “I am pleased to accept this appointment as chairman and look forward to continuing the steady leadership provided by Sara in cooperation with Tim and the DGG team to meet our objective of supporting our members and providing industry-leading forums to assist in capital formation. It is an important time in the mining industry, and DGG plays a critical role in connecting the global capital markets and the mining companies.”

Mr. Rutten is a Toronto-based portfolio manager on the Mackenzie Investments Resource Team. He returns to the Board of Directors following a one-year interval, having previously completed a full term.
