Consolidated Tin Mines (ASX:CSD) has appointed John Banning as the managing director.
Banning takes the helm as Consolidated Tin is on the way to develop its flagship Mt Garnet Tin project in northern Queensland into a major low cost, open pit mining operation processing 1 million tonnes per annum to produce about 5,000 tonnes of tin in concentrate annually.
With the completion of a positive pre-feasibility study, the company aims to develop and establish tin production by end of 2014 and focus on increasing mine life and production profile by developing other tin production opportunities within the broader Mt Garnet Tin Project area.
Banning joined Consolidated Tin as executive general manager last year and has previously worked in senior roles with Kagara Ltd (ASX:KZL), Stillwater Mining, Goldfields Australia and mining majors such as BHP Billiton (ASX:BHP) and Xstrata Copper.
The company's current managing director Ralph De Lacey will remain the executive chairman.
