Vancouver, BC - MAG Silver Corp. (TSX:MAG; NYSE MKT:MVG) ("MAG" or the "Company") announced today that at its annual general and special meeting (the "AGSM") held on June 24, 2014, MAG's shareholders approved by majority to decrease the size of the board to seven, elect all seven directors standing for re-election, re-appoint Deloitte LLP as the Company's auditor, and approve the Company's Equity Compensation Plans.
The Board of Directors wish to extend their gratitude to Dr. Peter Megaw and Messrs. Eric Carlson and Frank Hallam, all of whom did not stand for re-election as directors for the ensuing year. Each of these directors has been instrumental in MAG's successes to date, and in particular, in the initial recognition of the value of property positions assembled at Juanicipio and elsewhere by the Company. Jonathan Rubenstein, Chairman of MAG, said "these individuals have been an integral part of the early and continued growth of the Company, and our shareholders have benefited greatly from their expertise, perseverance and commitment. The board thanks them for their dedicated years of service, and wishes each of them continued success in their future endeavours." The Company will maintain its close relationship with Dr. Megaw, who will continue to lead our exploration efforts, and Frank Hallam will remain accessible to the MAG Silver Finance Committee.
Detailed results of the votes held by ballot at the AGSM are set out below.
