At the annual special meeting of shareholders, Allan Green was elected to the board of directors by stakeholders.

Furthermore, chief executive Darren Lindsay along with Randy Smallwood, Brian Lock, Randal Gindi, Peter Hawley were also elected as directors.

During the meeting shareholders approved two new control persons: Grizal and East China Mining, Castle Peak said in a statement.

Last month, the Ghana-based gold explorer had appointed project evaluation and feasibility studies specialist Clive Arthur as vice president of exploration.

It also approved a $5 million exploration budget for 2012. The company's campaign will include a follow up drill program on the
Apankrah target and further drilling on the Nana and Dansuom targets totalling up to 5,000 metres.

Castle Peak will undertake a regional target generation and drill evaluation program, which will include ground based geophysical surveys to add to the existing geological database.

The Canadian-based explorer has land packages in the Ashanti belt next to many gold producing mines in Ghana, West Africa.

The Ashanti belt is known as one of the most prolific gold belts in the world with more than 150 million proven ounces uncovered and current investment in excess of $3.3 billion.
