Phoenix Gold Bolsters Team To Accelerate Transition To Producer Status

Phoenix Gold (ASX:PXG) has made key appointments of personnel to accelerate its 215,000 metres drilling program, complete definitive feasibility study and achieve interim resource target of 4 million ounces at its Western Australian projects.

The company has appointed Tim Manners as the chief financial officer. Manners joins Phoenix after a stint as the CFO and company secretary at ASX 200 coal miner Bathurst Resources (ASX: BTU).

He has previously been the CFO at both Western Areas and Perilya Ltd.

Grant Haywood has been appointed the General Manager- Projects and will lead the DFS team as the company transitions from explorer to producer.

He has held operational and technical management roles with Norton Gold Fields at the Paddington Gold Mine and Gold Fields at the Agnew and St Ives Gold Mines.

He was most recently General Manager-Operations at Saracen Holdings.

Ian Copeland has been appointed General Manager- Exploration and will be responsible for resources growth, business development and internal cash flow generation from stockpile sales and small mine development.

The project geology team has been bolstered with an additional project geologist and senior field technician and will be led by Project Geology Manager Lyndal Money.

A dedicated resource geology manager has also been appointed, given the considerable resource modelling work expected to be undertaken this year.

Phoenix has extensive land holding on the Zuleika and Kunanalling shear zones northwest of Kalgoorlie.

The 100% owned Castle Hill gold project is emerging as a flagship asset with the potential to become a multi-million ounce gold mine.
