(CSE: GEGC) (FSE: GI8) is pleased to announce the appointments of Robert Seguin to its Board of Directors and Gary Harbottle as its Corporate Secretary.

His work has spanned several of the world's financial capitals, including Milan, London, Geneva, Toronto, and Montreal.
Robert's expertise is not limited to institutional sales; he has also made significant contributions in strategic management consulting, cross-border M&A, and investor relations, serving as a partner in specialized boutiques in Italy and Canada.

Notably, he played an instrumental part in the strategic development and growth of the company during its formative years, including naming the company Seabridge Resources, which was subsequently changed to Seabridge Gold.

About Great Eagle Gold Corp.
Great Eagle Gold Corp. (CSE: GEGC) (FSE: GI8), a Canadian public company, aims to be a leading digital green gold miner. Its unique strategy involves developing and acquiring certified gold resources to exchange into digital green gold tokens. By keeping the gold secured in the ground while tokenizing and monetizing its value, Great Eagle Gold Corp. introduces an innovative, ESG-friendly approach to wealth creation in the traditional gold mining industry.
Great Eagle Gold's inaugural gold resource development project is situated in Colombia's second-largest gold-producing region, Bajo Cauca. Hacienda Río Rayo encompasses three fully permitted exploration and production concessions, hosting nine active alluvial gold mining operations with an average monthly output of approximately 35 kilograms. The total area covered by these three concessions is 2,523 hectares. Despite its rich history of gold production, this extensive area has never undergone modern exploration or certification of gold resources. Identifying and quantifying this untapped potential is Great Eagle Gold's primary focus. Moreover, Colombia is anticipated to be the first country to enact green gold legislation, as championed by the International Green Gold Council, thus pioneering the way for a thriving green gold tokenization industry.
Besides its Colombian project, Great Eagle Gold's global acquisition strategy targets existing mining titles with NI 43-101 certified gold resources. This approach is in anticipation of a wave of green gold legislation, which is expected to open tokenization opportunities worldwide.
