Stuart was previously managing director of Laconia Resources from 2009 to 2014 and prior to that he worked at Macquarie Group Ltd (ASX:MQG).
His time at Macquarie provided him with extensive experience in capital markets, public company governance and management across Australia and internationally.
Stuart has also worked as a senior geologist throughout Australia and Africa, exploring for gold and base metals.
He has particularly relevant experience in exploring volcanic-hosted massive sulphide (VMS) deposits, including feasibility studies and project development.
Bryah’s managing director Neil Marston said: “During his tenure as a non-executive director, Stuart Hall has made a significant contribution to the company, assisting in its successful ASX listing in 2017, and providing rigorous oversight of the company’s manganese, copper and gold exploration activities.
“Bryah Resources has quickly achieved exploration success, and we thank Stuart for his valuable service over the last 2 years.
“We also extend a warm welcome to Ian Stuart to fill the vacant chair position.
“Ian brings a wealth of international mining experience, having worked in Australia, Africa and Latin America and has significant knowledge of the capital markets, which we believe will greatly benefit the company.”
