Kimberley Metals Ltd (ASX:KBL) ("Kimberley") is pleased to announce the appointment of Michael Hanlon to the position of General Manager for the Mineral Hill Mine near Condobolin, in central western New South Wales. Mr Hanlon will assume responsibility for all mine operations and process plant refurbishment work as of 21 February 2010.

Mr Hanlon brings in excess of 20 years of senior management and technical experience in Western Australia and New South Wales and recently he was the resident manager at the Tritton Copper Mine for Straits Resources (ASX:SRL).

The appointment of General Manager is an important addition to the senior management team at Kimberley Metals as the Parkers Hill Underground and Pearse Open Cut projects at Mineral Hill are advanced to production status. Mr Hanlon has demonstrated success in previous management roles and strengths in production, processing, community and government liaison, disciplines which Kimberley believe will deliver long term operations success for the Company.

Kimberley is actively recruiting all operations personnel to support commencement of commercial production by mid-2011.
