Kingston Resources Ltd (ASX:KSN) has strengthened its executive team by making senior appointments to help lead ongoing exploration and project development programs at Misima Gold Project in Papua New Guinea and Livingstone Gold Project in Western Australia.
Stuart Hayward has been promoted to chief geologist to manage the increased scope of technical programs across the projects, oversee mineral resource estimates for both and manage the delivery of technical inputs to underpin the completion of Misima mining studies.
Andrew Harwood will replace Stuart Hayward in the role of Misima exploration manager and will work alongside project manager Charles Yobone and the geology team to advance the 2020 drilling program ahead of a mineral resource estimate in Q2 2020.
“Invaluable addition to on-ground team”
Managing director Andrew Corbett said: “With our ongoing exploration program continuing to enhance the prospectivity of both our Misima and Livingstone gold projects, I am absolutely delighted that Stuart Hayward has accepted the position of chief geologist and that Andrew Hardwood will lead our Misima exploration team.
“Andrew brings specialised skills within the Asia Pacific region - PNG and Australia – and will be an invaluable addition to the on-ground team at Misima.”
Corbett continued: “Stuart joined Kingston in April 2019 and alongside Charles Yobone has successfully guided the Misima team to deliver our recent exploration success.
“The outstanding initial results at both the Abi and Misima North greenfields targets are a credit to Stuart’s exploration capabilities.
“We are now well placed to deliver an updated resource estimate for Misima in Q2 2020 and then progress to mining studies in the second half of the year.
“Stuart will also oversee the next phase of drilling at the Livingstone Gold Project in WA, commencing in March.”
