Energold Drilling Corp. (EGD: TSX.V) ("Energold" or "the Company" or “Energold Group”) is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Alastair McBain as an independent director of the Company, effective May 24, 2018.

Mr. Frederick Davidson, CEO and President, of Energold commented as follows: “We are delighted to welcome Mr. McBain to the Board.  Mr. McBain complements the existing composition of the Board and his extensive experience in the oil industry will be extremely valuable for the Company.” 

Mr. McBain is a graduate of Oxford University and has over 37 years’ experience in the oil industry.
