NEW YORK Bellhaven Copper & Gold Inc. director and chief executive officer Patrick Highsmith has resigned, the company said April 3.
Highsmiths resignation is effective immediately, though he will work through the end of April to ensure a smooth transition, the Vancouver, British Columbia-based exploration company said. He will also serve as a consultant for a time, the company added.
Bellhaven focuses on copper and gold development projects in Panama and Colombia. Its flagship project is the La Mina porphyry gold-copper reserve in the Middle Cauca belt of Colombia, which Bellhaven has estimated to hold 1.6 million ounces of gold and 419 million pounds of copper.
