Chairman Milan Jerkovic, said: “The appointment of Tony James comes at a time when Blackham plans to transition its open pit mining operations from the Matilda mine back to the free milling ore bodies at the Wiluna mine.

"Tony will provide valuable experience in peer reviewing our geological, mining and processing plans at Wiluna moving forward.

"Tony’s experience will also be extremely valuable as Blackham progresses its development and expansion plans for the Wiluna operation’s 6.5 million ounces of gold resources.”

Considerable experience

James has considerable operational, new project development and corporate experience, including as managing director of Carbine Resources (ASX:CRB), Atherton Resources and Mutiny Gold.

While at Atherton he achieved a favourable outcome for shareholders which culminated in a cash takeover by Auctus Minerals.

At Mutiny he led the implementation of a revised development strategy for the Deflector copper-gold deposit before the merger of Mutiny and Doray Minerals (ASX:DRM).

Previous Alacer Gold executive

Prior to this, James held a number of senior executive positions with international gold producer Alacer Gold Corporation (TSE:ASR).

This included president of Alacer’s Australian operations following the merger between Anatolia Minerals (ASX:AQG) and Avoca Resources in 2011.

He also played a key role in Avoca’s initial growth and success, leading the feasibility, development and operations of the Higginsville Gold Operations.
