London-listed Emmerson has appointed Jim Wynn as CFO, effective immediately.
The emerging phosphate miner says Wynn is an experienced finance professional with significant corporate experience, particularly in the resource sector.
He has held executive and or senior positions for the likes of Moxico Resources, Rainbow Rare Earths, Avocet Mining and Anglo American, and currently serves on the board of exploration company GreenRock Mining.
Wynn is expected to play a pivotal role in putting in place debt financing for the Khemisset project, in Morocco, which the company aims to conclude during the second or third quarter of this year.
"We are delighted to welcome Wynn to the Emmerson team, working alongside our colleagues in Morocco and in the UK to promote our growing business in Morocco and internationally.
“This is a pivotal time in our development as we begin to advance Khemisset into the construction phase, and in so doing, establishing the first commercial potash mine on the African continent, working in partnership with the Moroccan government and relevant authorities to promote the UK as an international fertiliser hub,” CEO Graham Clarke comments.
