As an AIM-quoted company, Lexington Gold (“Lexington” or the “Company”) and its subsidiaries (together, the “Group”) is required to apply a recognised corporate governance code, demonstrating how the Group complies with such corporate governance code and where it departs from it.
The Directors of the Company have formally taken the decision to apply the QCA Corporate Governance Code (the “QCA Code”). The Board recognises the principles of the QCA Code, which focus on the creation of medium to long-term value for shareholders without stifling the entrepreneurial spirit in which small to medium sized companies, such as Lexington, have been created. The Company updated its Corporate Governance Statement on 27 July 2020 to reflect the change to the Board of Directors announced on the same day and will provide annual updates on its compliance with the QCA Code in its Annual Report. The Corporate Governance Statement was last updated on 20 October 2023.
