Appointment of Non-Executive Director


Rockfire Resources plc (LON: ROCK), the gold and copper-focused resource company, is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr Patrick Elliott as a non-executive director of the Company, effective immediately.


Pat Elliott is an experienced resources and industrial company director. In a career spanning over 45 years, he has held senior executive positions with Consolidated Gold Fields (Australia) Limited and Morgan Grenfell Australia Limited. Pat has an MBA in Mineral Economics from Macquarie University, and a B Comm from the University of New South Wales. He has extensive management experience in a range of fields including manufacturing, mineral exploration and oil and gas exploration.

Pat is currently Executive Chairman of Argonaut Resources NL (an ASX-listed copper explorer), Cap-XX Limited and Tamboran Resources Ltd (an unlisted Australian oil and gas explorer).

David Price, Chief Executive Officer of Rockfire commented

"Pat is an outstanding addition to the high-calibre board that Rockfire is building. Several companies that Pat has been directly involved with and indeed, has had a major impact on, have developed from micro-cap companies into +$100m companies. Pat has an excellent track record of mergers and acquisitions and has been instrumental in transformational growth of junior mining companies, which is the determined strategy of Rockfire. We look forward to building Rockfire with Pat as part of our management team".
