Mustang Chairman Ian Daymond said Dr Kirby, who is a metallurgist with more than 40 years' experience, brings a wealth of corporate and technical expertise to Mustang.
In particular, over the last couple of years his primary focus has been the development of an African based graphite project. This extensive knowledge and experience working in the graphite sector as well as his previous technical experience with gemstones will be invaluable to Mustang.
"Evan's graphite skills and knowledge together with extensive processing, plant design and commissioning experience will be very valuable for Mustang," Mr Daymond said.
Dr Kirby worked for 16 years in South Africa with Impala Platinum, Rand Mines and then Rustenburg Platinum Mines. In 1992, he moved to Australia and was employed by Minproc Engineers and then Bechtel Corporation, where he had management and technical responsibilities.
In 2002, Evan established his own Australian based consulting business, Metallurgical Management Services. He has held leading roles in numerous metals and minerals projects, including many world-class developments, and has been a director of several ASX and AIM-listed mining companies. His hands-on experience includes diamonds, coloured gemstones, graphite, gold and platinum group metals, mineral sands and base metals. Evan is based in Perth, Western Australia.
