Adds Operational Expertise to Board
Dr. Trzebski is currently Chief Operating Officer of Austmine Ltd and holds a degree in Geology, PhD in Geophysics, Masters in Project Management and has over 30 years professional experience in project management and mining services.
He holds considerable operating and commercial experience in Argentina and Chile, as a Non-Executive Director of Austral Gold since 2007, listed on the ASX and TSX-V and is Chairman of the Audit and Risk Committee. His role with Austmine has allowed him to develop considerable contacts across the operating and technology space of the global resources industry. Dr. Trzebski is also a fellow of the Australian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy and is fluent in Spanish and German as well as English.
Welcoming his appointment, Lake's Managing Director, Steve Promnitz said: "Robert offers a measured and collaborative approach with vast experience in South America that will be invaluable as Lake advances towards initial production of its lithium products. He will surely be a valuable addition to the Board."
As the company moves toward pre-production, and to ensure an orderly transition, the board is currently evaluating a candidate for the role of Chairman. Once appointed, Stu Crow will step down from the Chairman role to serve as a non-executive director in order to devote more time to managing the Company's capital raising activities and marketing, which requires a significant time commitment.
Lake is continuing to progress a range of funding solutions including debt or investment directly at the project level to minimise any potential dilution to equity holders. The appointment of experienced chief financial officer, Garry Gill (refer ASX release 31 October 2019) has further supported this process.
