Murray added: “I’m eager to join the company to advance the Mahenge Graphite project.

“I was attracted to Black Rock for the veracity and quality of the work done by John de Vries and his team all the way from initial studies through to the DFS released last year, and importantly, the compelling economics of the Mahenge Project which are robust from multiple angles.”
