The board of directors of American Gilsonite Co., 136 E. South Temple, has appointed Roy E. Nelson, who was president of the company between 1962 and 1980, as chairman of the board and chief executive officer. Nelson became a member of the board last March.

K. Clark Christensen, president and chief operating officer, said, "We expect to benefit greatly from Roy's broad experience, and I am most confident that with his skilled guidance and our hard work, the best is yet to come for American Gilsonite Co." Since 1980, Nelson has been involved in several mining ventures.
