El Capitan Precious Metals is an exploration stage precious metals company based in Scottsdale, Arizona. At the moment, the company’s primary asset is its wholly owned subsidiary – El Capitan Limited – which owns a 100 percent equity interest in the El Capitan property (thought to contain gold, silver, and platinum) located near Capitan, New Mexico.
The company announced today that Arly Richau has been appointed to its Board of Directors effective immediately, filling a seat that was vacated last month. Mr. Richau was a logical choice for the position since he has been involved in various aspects of legal representation of the El Capitan mining project for the past 18 years, including as general counsel to the company’s board of directors since its merger with Gold and Minerals Company Inc.
Mr. Richau earned his law degree at the University of North Dakota and has been in private practice in Phoenix, Arizona, since 1997. His law career spans three decades and includes positions as Commissioner of Securities for the State of North Dakota and Special Assistant Attorney General for the North Dakota Tax Department.
El Capitan’s current management was pleased to bring Mr. Richau onboard at a pivotal time for the company. The company’s CEO and president, Chuck Mottley, said “I’ve relied on Arly’s wise counsel over the years and he has been a contributing factor in the success of our operation.”
