Aim-listed IronRidge Resources continues to strengthen its management team as it transitions from explorer to developer, through securing key executives and senior managers for the next phase of the company’s project and corporate development.
On Monday, CEO Vincent Mascolo committed to a further three years, with an option for a further two years, while COO Len Kolff will also serve out a three-year contract.
According to IronRidge Resources chairperson Neil Herbert, the company is “delighted to have secured the continued services of Mascolo and Kolff, who have both been paramount in the development of the company to date”.
He added that the company’s board believes Mascolo and Kolff will continue to make a significant contribution to the company’s efforts to both strengthen and rapidly develop its project inventory.
The company has also appointed Moctar Keita as the full-time exploration manager for its Côte d'Ivoire operations, while Steve Cancio-Newton has been appointed as the principal geologist for the company’s operations in Australia.
Keita will work closely with Mascolo and Kolff to administer the company's diverse and extensive lithium and gold portfolios in Côte d'Ivoire. Keita’s immediate focus will be on the company's rapidly advancing Kineta and Vavoua projects as they move towards initial drill planning and aeromagnetics respectively.
Cancio-Newton will work closely with Mascolo and Kolff to administer the company's diverse and extensive lithium, gold, bauxite, titanium and iron-ore project pipeline through Ghana, Chad, Côte d'Ivoire, Gabon and Australia.
Last month, the company appointed Iwan Williams as IronRidge’s exploration manager for Ghana. Williams, whose immediate focus will be on the company’s rapidly advancing Cape Coast lithium project as it moves towards initial drill planning, will work closely with existing management to administer the company's extensive project portfolio in Ghana.
"The board is also pleased to have appointed a number of high-calibre individuals who each have extensive experience in the mining and exploration sectors. These highly valuable additions to the team will prove vital to the success of each of our project initiatives,” Herbert said.
