Marcus has driven our Toka Tindung Mine forward from development to production and his leadership has positioned the Company to continue our strategy of growth and returns to shareholders. I wish him well for his future career. I also look forward to building on Archipelago’s achievements with Colin as our new CEO.”

Archipelago shares were up 0.25p to 52p in morning trading on the London Stock Exchange.
