Scorpio Gold President Steve Roebuck steps down

Scorpio Gold {TSX.V: SGN} surprised the market by announcing that Steve Roebuck, their President, had stepped down with immediate effect.

CEO Peter Hawley will assume the position of President as well as that of CEO.


This comes as a bit of a surprise to me, as Steve Roebuck was fully committed to Scorpio Gold in my experience.

I think one can only conclude that this may have come about as a result of the recent cancelled $15 million financing. I wondered at the time whether there would be any repercussions over that, and now Steve has left the company.

There may be no connection whatsoever of course, I am only speculating, and expressing my own thoughts.

I think he did an excellent job personally.
