Keegan Appoints Maurice Tagami President and CEO

Monday, April 19th, 2010

Keegan Resources Inc. is pleased to announce that Maurice Tagami, P. Eng has been appointed President and CEO of the company. Mr. Tagami replaces Dr. Dan McCoy who has resigned as President and CEO. Dr. McCoy will remain a director and the Chief Geologist for the company. Dan will continue to oversee all aspects of exploration at both Asumura and Esaase, Keegan’s two properties in Ghana, West Africa. The shift in positions within the company is consistent with Keegan’s current evolution from an exploration to a development focus. Mr. Tagami has over 28 years experience in mine development and operations and has played a significant metallurgical and project management role in numerous open pit, underground and heap leach projects in North and South America, Australia, Papua New Guinea, Africa, Europe and Asia. He has also been responsible for the advancement of projects from scoping through feasibility studies and detailed engineering.
Executive Chairman of Keegan, Shawn Wallace, states “Having Maurice as President and CEO of the company completes another step in our plan towards developing the Esaase Gold Project. With the recent announcement of our PEA demonstrating a robust project and the favorable environment for gold companies, Keegan’s entire management is focused on moving Esaase rapidly toward the path of development. Keegan would like to thank and commend Dan McCoy for the outstanding job he has done as our President during his tenure, which included the discovery of the Esaase Gold Project. We as a company are excited for what may lie ahead as he focuses along with the rest of Keegan’s successful geologic team, on exploring our many exciting untested targets both at Esaase and at the Asumura project where our drilling contractor has recently commenced mobilization.”
