Death of a Director

19 August 2019

The Board of Directors of Highland Gold Mining Limited ("Highland Gold" or the "Company", AIM: HGM) today announces with great sadness the death of Senior Independent Director Terry Robinson. Terry passed away on 16 August 2019 after a brief illness.

Executive Chairman Eugene Shvidler said: "On behalf of the Board and everyone at Highland Gold, I would like to offer our deepest, sincerest condolences to Terry's wife and family. Terry was a true gentleman in every sense of the word, and his experience, judgment, incomparable attention to detail and, most of all, his friendship will be sorely missed."

A qualified chartered accountant, Terry joined the Board of Directors in 2008 after a long and distinguished career in mining and international business. He served on the Board's Audit, HSE, and Remuneration & Nomination Committees.

Director Duncan Baxter will serve as interim head of the Audit Committee in Terry's absence. The Company will consider the appointment of a new independent director in due course.
