West Wits Mining Ltd (ASX:WWI) has promoted its expert exploration consultant, Dr Andrew Tunks, to sit on the company’s board as an executive director.

Dr Tunks will be in charge of the group’s exploration activities in the Witwatersrand Basin of South Africa and Pilbara region of Western Australia.

The company is producing gold from its Witwatersrand Basin Project (WBP) where it has a 3.26 million ounce gold resource.

West Wits continues to fast-track the application for the full-scale mining right across the WBP and plans to submit the paperwork to the government in April.

It is also exploring its Mt Cecelia and Tambina projects prospective for conglomerate-hosted gold in the Pilbara region.

Dr Tunks has been heavily involved with West Wits

For the past five years, Dr Tunks has been the company’s expert exploration consultant overseeing the material expansion in the WBP’s JORC resource.

His experience developing WBP will undoubtedly be useful in the exploration and potential development of the company's Pilbara projects.

Michael Quinert, chairman, said: “With West Wits undergoing a strategic transformation to position itself as a mid-tier gold producer with operations in the Witwatersrand Basin and Pilbara, we need high calibre experienced talent to successfully implement the board’s agenda.

“To this end, Dr Tunks brings a wealth of relevant gold exploration and emerging market experience that West Wits can leverage and utilise.”
