Angkor Gold Participates With Global Compact Network Canada Towards the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals

SEXSMITH, Alberta, March 09, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ANGKOR GOLD CORP. (TSXV:ANK) (OTC:ANKOF) (“Angkor” or “the Company”) VP of Social Development, Delayne Weeks, is pleased to announce Angkor Gold’s participation in a 3-year project with the Global Compact Network Canada (“GCNC”) to assist Canadian organizations in addressing the UN’s sustainable development goals. Angkor made the announcement following a meeting as part of International Women’s Day yesterday in Ottawa with the Honourable Minister Maryam Monsef, Minister of Status of Women, and representatives from participating companies, advisory partners, and GCNC. GCNC is a federally incorporated not-for-profit organization.

In both Canada and its operations in Cambodia, working from different ends of the development spectrum, Angkor Gold will be part of developing testing and implementing a model blueprint for promoting gender equality in ethical business development. Angkor Gold’s management sees this as an opportunity to take best practices from across Canada and implement them in both an emerging market and Canada’s developed sector.

Delayne Weeks, Angkor’s VP of Social Development, said, “We have a great opportunity to learn and grow when we share the weaknesses and strengths of various private-sector companies and commit to improving ourselves and our companies.  Gender equality is challenging in the most developed nations. Undertaking this in Cambodia in a new industry sector such as mining makes it even more challenging, but nonetheless a worthy exercise. This is part of making our countries better, and appreciating that we have the choice to do so in Canada.”
