The company’s board has thanked Byass and Brockhurst for their valuable input as chairman and non-executive director, respectively.

Menzies Gold Project progresses

Kingwest’s board is pleased to have Bittar’s input and assistance as the company progresses its 100%-owned Menzies Gold Project towards production and continues exploration at the Goongarrie Gold Project.

Earlier this year the company announced the results of a positive scoping study and has recently completed a capital raising with the support of corporate advisor Peloton Capital.

He is currently a non-executive director of Horizon Oil Limited and previously held the position of chairman for ASX listed mining companies Trek Metals and Millennium Minerals.
