Munckton has been in the CEO’s role since April 2018 and the new appointment will take effect on Wednesday.
Kin’s chairman Jeremy Kirkwood said Munckton was certain to make a strong contribution to the board of directors following an outstanding job as CEO.
“Andrew’s leadership has been excellent as Kin has worked through the issues associated with the Leonora Gold Project and in recalibrating Kin’s strategic direction.
"We look forward to his increased input, particularly as an experienced mining geologist, as a member of the board of directors.”
Company secretary resigns
Kin has also accepted the resignation of Joe Graziano as company secretary, a position he has held since the company’s incorporation.
Graziano will continue to serve on Kin’s board as a non-executive director.
Chief financial officer Stephen Jones will assume the role of company secretary.
