The emerging Australian lithium developer said in a statement that although he was a recent addition to the ‘family’, he had an immediate and positive impact on the company and team.
Core Lithium, which recently changed its name from Core Exploration, is progressing plans to bring the Finniss Lithium Project in the Northern Territory into production in 2019.
Provided highly valued, professional and erudite advice
The company’s statement said: “As chief financial officer, and with over 20 years’ experience in the resources sector, Erik gave highly valued, professional and erudite advice to the board and management during this important time in the company’s transition.
“On behalf of the company and our shareholders, we express deepest sympathy to Erik’s family. His positivity and friendly demeanour will be greatly missed.”
The company is advancing the Finniss project near Darwin and last month lodged an application for a mining lease at the Grants prospect with the NT Government.
A definitive feasibility study is underway and is on track for completion later this month.
This study is focused on mining and production of high-grade lithium concentrate with development planned to start in 2019.
