Ms. Largent joined the Perpetua team in February 2021 as Vice President, Finance and Investor Relations and has been instrumental in leading the finance team through a number of recent milestones including listing the Company’s shares on the NASDAQ stock exchange and successfully completing a $57.5 million public equity offering in August 2021 to ensure Perpetua is well capitalized as it advances the Stibnite Gold Project through the final stages of the permitting process. Under Ms. Largent’s leadership, Perpetua entered into a supply agreement to provide a portion of antimony production from the Stibnite Gold Project to Ambri Inc., establishing the foundation to help facilitate the decarbonization of energy grids in the U.S. and around the world.
“I am excited about Jessica’s promotion to Chief Financial Officer,” said Laurel Sayer, President and Chief Executive Officer of Perpetua Resources. “Jessica has a wealth of industry knowledge and her experience and proven success will continue to strengthen our diverse leadership team. She will be a valuable contributor as we advance Perpetua’s vision to redevelop and restore an abandoned mine site while providing critical minerals our nation needs.”

Perpetua Resources is also pleased to welcome Chris Fogg as Manager of Investor Relations. Mr. Fogg joined the Company March 1, 2022 and will lead Perpetua’s investor relations function following the promotion of Ms. Largent to Chief Financial Officer. Chris will be responsible alongside Ms. Largent for the investor relations strategy to ensure Perpetua’s investment thesis is well understood by the market. Mr. Fogg brings over seven years of gold industry experience in investor relations, capital markets and mergers & acquisitions, and was most recently at Newmont.
