Strong is the vice president for mining operations at Nyrstar.
In his current role, Strong is responsible for all of Nyrstar’s zinc mining and milling operations in Canada and the U.S., operating the mining of polymetallic zinc ore bodies.
Strong’s appointment is ideally suited to support Ironbark’s planned transition into mining.
The company recently revealed an updated feasibility study for its Citronen Zinc Project in Greenland, sharpening up the project economics with the NPV now exceeding US$1 billion.
The Citronen Project shows a highly profitable base metal development potential of global significance, with a large scale annual production of up to 200,000 tonnes of zinc metal.
Zinc prices recently surged to their highest in almost a decade by expectations of strong global demand and tight supplies.
