Aim- and TSX-V-listed Mkango Resources has appointed Robert Sewell CFO. 

Sewell joins the company from AfriTin Mining, where he was CFO during the construction and commissioning of its Uis tin mine, in Namibia. 

He received a BComm, Accounting degree from Rand Afrikaans University in 2003 and, subsequently, completed his professional qualifications with Deloitte in Johannesburg. 

Sewell joined Mkango president Alex Lemon and CEO Will Dawes in Malawi this week as they met with major international development and commercial bank teams visiting the Songwe Hill rare earths project. The results of the feasibility study for Songwe Hill will be released by the company next week.

"We are very pleased to have recruited Rob as our CFO. His expertise in multiple finance-related disciplines, including financial accounting, managerial finance, financial analysis, cash management and the development of financial and operational strategies, as well as his African experience, will add valuable skill sets to the Mkango management team and his expertise with the financial aspects of bringing a mine to production will be critical as we move Songwe Hill forward to construction and production," comments Mkango chairperson Derek Linfield.

"It is an honour to join Mkango Resources as CFO at this exciting point in the company's development. I look forward to working with the executive team, board and financiers as we unlock the incredible potential of this project for all stakeholders," Sewell says.
