Bolsters Board - Appointment of Non-Executive Director
Ms King commented "I'm excited to be appointed as Non-Executive Director, being of Noongar and Gurindji descendant I look forward to working with the Indigenous staff and applying my skills in Human Resources and Indigenous Affairs. This is an exciting time to be joining Classic Minerals Ltd as they look to move into gold production at the Kat Gap Gold Project.
The Chairman John Lester said: "Having been thoroughly impressed with Gillian's knowledge, communication and understanding of our Indigenous staff the Board is delighted to now have a Gender Diversified board and secured the services of Gillian for this pivotal role.
Gillian brings a wealth of experience in Human Resources and Indigenous Affairs and will greatly assist the skill set of current Directors, Mr Stephen O'Grady who has contributed to the successful development of 84 open cut projects; many of which have turned into productive and viable mines as well as Mr Fred Salkanovic who has strong knowledge of the mining and resources sector in Australia, with key competencies in exploration, materials processing and logistics in relation to junior mining companies. Together with the financial knowledge of Mr Lu Ning Yi, a well-known businessman with important connections in the Chinese arena and myself, I feel the company is transformed and positioned to deliver shareholder wealth".
