This appointment will see Gregory help steer the company's exploration efforts at its highly prospective gold projects.
In another change to the management team, the company has appointed Octavio Garcia as head of exploration in Queensland.
Gregory is a resource industry leader with more than 20 years’ experience in developing projects and supporting mining operations with BHP, Murchison Metals and Mineral Resources.
Garcia adds 25 years of exploration and development experience to the company and will be responsible for establishing the company’s Queensland base of operations.
“Experience in advancing projects”
Executive chairman John Terpu said: “We have two quality projects in world-class gold jurisdictions, extremely close to operating mills which require drill outs.
“Sean’s appointment not only adds exploration experience to the team but also adds corporate experience in advancing projects from the exploration phase through to development and potential commercialisation.”
“Unrivalled position” to advance projects
Gregory said on his appointment: “I am very impressed by the scale and prospectivity of Great Southern Mining’s extensive project portfolio.
“The quality of the board, assembled team members, shareholder base and exploration infrastructure belies the current market cap of the company.
“This combination puts us in an unrivalled position to rapidly and systematically advance our projects for shareholder wealth.”
Wealth of knowledge
Terpu continued: “We’ve so far demonstrated the prospectivity of our significant tenement package around Mt Carlton and have over 20 targets we are looking to explore this year alone.
“Octavio brings a wealth of knowledge and experience with these systems needed to execute the exploration programs efficiently and cost effectively.
“We now have a fulltime Queensland based head of exploration to continue to develop and enhance the company’s Edinburgh Park Project.
