Tim Baker, Chairman of Golden Star, commented:
"Following yesterday's AGSM we say goodbye to two of our Directors, Tony Jensen and Bill Yeates, and we welcome Mona Quartey.  I'd like to thank Tony and Bill for their hard work and dedication over the years; they have made a huge contribution to Golden Star.  The Company they leave is very different from the one they joined and our transformation into a high grade, low cost, mid-tier producer is well underway. I am delighted that Mona is joining the Board and we will all benefit from her experience in finance, politics and operating in Ghana.  2017 is on track to be another important year for Golden Star and we have a strong team at all levels of the Company to enable us to deliver our objectives."
