Galiano Gold Announces Passing of COO


VANCOUVER, BC, July 31, 2020 /CNW/ - Galiano Gold Inc. ("Galiano" or the "Company") (TSX: GAU) (NYSE: GAU) (formerly Asanko Gold Inc.) announces with a heavy heart the passing of the Company's Chief Operating Officer, Mr. Josephat Zvaipa, as a result of complications associated with a COVID-19 infection. The entire Galiano Gold and Asanko Gold Ghana family mourns this loss and we extend our deepest sympathies to Joe's family.

Mr. Zvaipa joined the group in 2014 and had been the Managing Director of Asanko Gold Ghana Limited from 2015 to mid-2019 during the time that the Asanko Gold Mine was financed, built and commissioned.

He played a pivotal role in making the Asanko Gold Mine a reality we are all proud of today.

Joe moved to Johannesburg to assume the role of Chief Operating Officer of Galiano Gold in 2019. His booming voice, passion and larger than life personality will be sorely missed.

The Asanko Gold Mine Joint Venture will continue to be managed by the Executive Vice-President and Managing Director of Asanko Gold Ghana, Mr. Fred Attakumah.
