Appointment of Dr Gustavo Delendatti as Exploration Manager
Dr Delendatti will manage the drilling and exploration program for the high-grade, zinc-copper-gold project as part of Platina's earn-in joint venture with TSX-V listed Blue Moon Corporation.
Dr Delendatti is a senior geologist with over 23 years of experience in the evaluation, exploration and development of mineral deposits in a range of mineralisation styles (epithermal, porphyry, volcanogenic massive sulphide, lithium pegmatite) in South America, North America and Australia.
Most recently, he was Exploration Manager at the Authier Lithium Project in Quebec for ASX-listed Australian company Sayona Mining Limited. He played a key role in the completion of the Authier project's Pre and Definitive Feasibility Studies and led more than 15,000 metres of drilling that more than tripled the size of the lithium resource since acquisition.
Mr Delendatti was previously Exploration Manager at ASX-listed explorer Elementos Limited, and Project Manager for TSX-listed, Exeter Resource Corporation at the Don Sixto gold project and Caspiche copper-gold project in Chile.
Mr. Delendatti holds a PhD in geological science and is a Member of the Australian Institute of Geoscientists and a Competent Person under JORC 2012 Code & Guidelines.
