Fe Limited (ASX:FEL) has appointed Philippe Bouchart as the general manager of the company’s Kasombo Copper-Cobalt Project located in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Bouchart is ideally suited to the position having held executive positions in the mining industry for 26 years.

Tony Sage, chairman, said: “Phillipe Bouchart brings an incredible amount of experience to the role and has worked for over 15 years in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

He has extensive experience with cobalt projects and on constructing and optimising metallurgical plants to maximise cobalt recoveries and returns.

I look forward to seeing the progress Mr Bouchart makes and in developing the Kasombo Project.”

As well as attracting high profile management, the Kasombo project has drawn interest from the investment community.

Since the binding term sheet was signed off the cobalt price has increased circa 50%, recently passing US$80,000 per tonne.
