TSX-V-listed Deep-South Resources, which owns copper projects in Namibia and Zambia, has appointed Matthew Starnes as an independent director.

Starnes is a lawyer with over 25 years of experience. He is currently a consultant Peerpoint lawyer with Allen & Overy in Tokyo, Japan, specialising in mining law.  He acts as senior external counsel to Base Resources' Toliara Sands project in Madagascar.  

Prior to this he was legal counsel in Sumitomo Corporation's Mineral Resources Division in Tokyo. Among other things, he was responsible for legal aspects of Sumitomo's investment in the Sierra Gorda copper project, in Chile, and was also part of the team for the Ambatovy nickel and cobalt project in Madagascar.

Prior to joining Sumitomo, Starnes was the general counsel and deputy president of the Ambatovy project during its construction phase where, among other things, he was responsible for closing a $2.1-billion financing.
