AURCREST GOLD APPOINTS CHRIS ANGECONEB AS PRESIDENT AND CEO
Aurcrest Gold Inc.'s Christopher Clayton James Angeconeb, executive vice-president and director, has accepted the role of president and chief executive officer of the company.

Mr. Angeconeb, a member of the Lac Seul First Nation in the Grand Council Treaty No. 3 area of Northwestern Ontario, possesses a strong understanding of the interrelated issues facing many first nations, of the requirements of many of the agencies involved with aboriginal affairs and of the practical implementation of the Crown's duty to consult and accommodate. Mr. Angeconeb will now be setting the direction of the company, focusing on exploration and expansion of company holdings as an active participant to the socio-economic development of the company's neighbouring aboriginal communities. Mr. Angeconeb will also continue to serve as president of Wiigwaasaatig Energy Inc., the renewable energy subsidiary of the company tasked with partnering with local first nations to develop the infrastructure necessary to sustain mineral industry activities.
The board of directors would like to thank outgoing president and CEO Ian Brodie-Brown for his years of service and dedication to the company, and his many efforts to foster a strong first nations presence in the Canadian resource sector. Mr. Brodie-Brown will continue to be an active participant on the company's board, taking on the role of director of business development.
