Stuart Hayward Appointed as Misima Exploration Manager
- Highly-credentialed exploration geologist with more than 30 years' experience
- Expert in epithermal Au-Ag systems
Mr Stuart Hayward has accepted the role of Exploration Manager, commencing in early April. Stuart is a highly credentialed geologist with more than 30 years' experience in mineral systems exploration and evaluation including epithermal Au-Ag and porphyry Cu-Au deposits. Stuart's extensive CV includes more than 15 years with Newcrest Mining Ltd as a Mineral Resource Manager and Principal Geologist covering their Asia Pacific and PNG projects, including time spent working on Newcrest's Lihir and Wafi Golpu projects.
Mr Michael Woodbury has resigned from the role of Exploration Manager to pursue other opportunities. The Company wishes to thank Michael for his efforts on Misima, particularly in establishing the drilling program alongside Project Manager Charles Yobone.
Kingston Resources Limited Managing Director, Andrew Corbett said: "We are excited to have someone of Stuart's calibre joining the team at Misima. Stuart will be working alongside Charles Yobone and our recently expanded team of geologists. He will have a particular focus on the 2019 drilling program which seeks to advance the exciting targets identified during 2018 towards resource definition. In addition to Stuart's appointment we have recently appointed two new local geologists to the team as we ramp up regional exploration activities on the island. During my recent site visit to Misima it was particularly pleasing to see the expanded geological team carrying out field work on both Quartz Mountain and Ara Creek while we are drilling in a third location at Ginamwamwa. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Mike Woodbury for his efforts in helping to establish our current exploration program since late 2017."
