KIS CEO Johann Jacobs said: “The appointment of Chas Murcott as General Manager of Project Development and Operations at our 100% owned Dolphin Tungsten Project marks a fantastic addition to the team on the ground in Tasmania.
“Following the recent release of the Feasibility Study and Revised Mineral Reserve Estimate, the company is striving ahead with its strategy to redevelop Dolphin and securing someone of Chas’ calibre to be a part of that process is a real bonus for KIS.”
KIS recently revealed positive results from its updated feasibility study and reserve estimate for the Dolphin Tungsten Project on the southeast coast of King Island in Bass Strait.
The study outlines that the Dolphin open‐cut project is planned to mine and process about 400,000 tonnes per annum of ore for eight years to produce about 3,500 tonnes of tungsten trioxide concentrate per year.
This concentrate will be selling into a market with strong growing demand and constrained supply.
