Morocco-focused potash development company Emmerson has appointed Graham Clarke as its new CEO, effective from July 1.
Clarke is an experienced fertiliser industry executive with 26 years’ experience in underground potash mining and a proven ability to attract talent and build operating teams with the capability to deliver large, complex projects in the fertiliser space, Emmerson said on June 29.
His experience includes managing all technical disciplines, due diligence processes and stakeholder engagement.
Clarke says the results of the feasibility study into the company's Khemisset potash mine, “indicate a very compelling potash opportunity which, because of its very low expected upfront capital cost, is likely to have multiple financing options available to it”.
Clarke plans to use his experience to improve what is “already a very impressive potash project” and expedite development towards production.
