Blackham aims to transition Matilda-Wiluna Gold Operation into a long-life mine

Blackham Resources Ltd (ASX:BLK) has appointed Geoff Jones as a non-executive director as it prepares for the next phase of its evolution as a gold producer.

Jones adds further mining and engineering skills to the board as Blackham aims to deliver the goal to transition the Matilda-Wiluna Gold Operation into a 200,000 ounces per annum long-life mine.

He replaces Greg Miles who has announced his resignation as a non-executive director.

Blackham’s chairman Milan Jerkovic said: “It is fantastic to have attracted a director of the calibre of Geoff Jones to the Blackham board.

“His extensive gold mining, project development and engineering skills will complement the rest of the board and management team well as we look to expand Blackham’s production capacity further.”

Miles thanked for contribution

Miles was fundamental in investigating and then securing the acquisition of the Matilda and Wiluna projects and consolidation of the entire Wiluna goldfield.

His intimate knowledge of geology in the region has helped to grow the original 300,000-ounce resource to the considerable 6.5 million ounce resource as it stands today.

Jerkovic said: “I would also like to personally thank Greg Miles for his immeasurable contribution to the company over the past seven years, particularly in helping to define and de-risk the company’s 6.5 million ounces of defined resource.”
