Board of Directors

David M. Docherty Executive Chairman

David has 45 years experience in evaluating and investing in resource-related public companies dating back to 1965 when he was an analyst with Slater Walker Investments Limited, London.

In 1987 David, in association with business colleagues, founded a Thai gold exploration venture. This venture discovered the gold-mineralised ‘A Prospect’ at Chatree in central Thailand in 1989 (now being mined).

The discovery led to the development of the Chatree Gold Mine by ASX listed Kingsgate Consolidated Limited in 2000.

From the time Kingsgate first acquired an interest in the Chatree project in 1993, the value of its shares has risen from 6c to as high as $12.30 in 2010, capitalising the company at a peak AUD1.2 Billion (~US$1.2B).

David represents a family-related shareholding in the Company of 33.5% and was appointed a founding Director on 28 February 2002.
