Appointment of Mr Tony James as Director
Mr James is a mining engineer with considerable operational, new project development and corporate experience including roles as Managing Director of Carbine Resources (ASX:CRB), Atherton Resources (ASX:ATE) and Mutiny Gold (ASX:MYG). At Atherton Resources he achieved a favourable outcome for shareholders which culminated in a cash takeover by Auctus Minerals. At Mutiny he led the implementation of a revised development strategy for the Deflector copper-gold deposit in WA prior to the merger of Mutiny Gold and Doray Minerals (ASX:DRM).
Prior to this, Mr James held a number of senior executive positions with international gold producer Alacer Gold Corporation, including President of its Australian Operations following the merger between Anatolia Minerals (ASX:AQG) and Avoca Resources (ASX:AVO) in 2011. He also played a key role in Avoca's initial growth and success, leading the feasibility, development and operations of the Higginsville Gold Operations.
Blackham's Chairman, Milan Jerkovic, said:
"The appointment of Tony James to the Board comes at a time when Blackham is planning to transition its open pit mining operations from the Matilda Mine back to the free milling orebodies at the Wiluna Mine. Tony will provide valuable experience in peer reviewing our geological, mining and processing plans at Wiluna moving forward.
Tony's experience will also be extremely valuable as Blackham progresses its development and expansion plans for the Wiluna Operation's 6.5Moz of gold resources."
