Appointment of General Manager-Development
Mr Buckingham will focus on development studies and defining an optimal development path for the Company's 100% owned Cue Gold Project in Western Australia's Murchison district and oversee the progression of the project through to potential gold production. The Cue Project Mineral Resource Estimate now stands at 12.3Mt @ 2.3g/t Au for 927,000 ounces of contained gold (see MGV ASX announcement dated 31 May 2022, "Cue Mineral Resource Increases to 927,000 Ounces"). The Company believes there is significant potential to continue to grow the current resource base.
Musgrave's Managing Director Rob Waugh said:
"This is a significant appointment for Musgrave and facilitates a pathway to accelerate the Company's strategy of transitioning Musgrave from a successful exploration company to a successful gold producer.
We are delighted to welcome Anthony to the Musgrave team. Anthony's broad industry experience, development and operational expertise in gold, complements the existing Musgrave team and will enable Musgrave to follow the dual approach of exploration discovery-resource growth and development. Musgrave's ability to attract such a well credentialled candidate is a testament to the quality of the Cue Gold Project."
