The lead on the project will be will be Mark Whittle, the exploration manager at Hammer Metals. He is a geologist with more than 30 years of experience in the mining industry, with extensive exploration experience in Queensland, the Northern Territory and Western Australia and internationally on projects in the Philippines and Finland.
Hammer Metals was awarded “Queensland Explorer of the Year” in 2015.
John Downing will also be involved with the technical program at site. He's another geologist with in excess of 30 years of experience in the mineral resources industry in Australia and internationally.
He has worked for a number of mining and exploration companies and consultancies, including Pan Australian Mining, Mount Isa Mines, the Western Australia Department of Mines and Petroleum, Maxwell Geosciences, and Snowden Group.
Both were integral to the initial work program just completed at Millennium and so keeping that geological continuity is key for the project,” said Paul Sarjeant, vice president of projects at Global Energy Metals.
“Their expertise in advancing projects in this region should mean that we have a well-executed program giving us the best chance of getting the best results from the important Millennium cobalt project,” he added.
