Kilo appoints Jim Williams to board of directors

Mineral explorer Kilo Goldmines (CVE:KGL) reported Tuesday it has appointed Jim Williams to the board of directors.

Williams now replaces Klaus Eckhof who resigned from the board to free up time for his other business activities.

Williams, a resident of the U.K., is a professional geologist and holds more than 25 years of experience since graduating from the Imperial College’s Royal School of Mines with a Master of Science in mineral exploration and mining.

He is also a co-founder and chief executive of Arian SilverCorp. (LON:AGQ), a public silver exploration company listed on the TSX Venture Exchange and as well as the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.

Prior to co-founding Arian, Williams held a number of director, senior officer and consulting roles for a number of companies associated with the industrial minerals, diamonds, gold and base metal projects across the Americas, Africa and the former Soviet Union.  

Additionally, he is a fellow of the Institute of Minerals, Metals and Mining and is a registered European engineer and geologist. 

“Williams’ experience in Africa and especially in the Archean greenstone belts in sub-Saharan Africa, including extensive work in the Democratic Republic of Congo combined with his experience of listed company markets in Canada and the U.K. will be a valuable asset to Kilo,” chairman of Kilo Goldmines David Netherway said in a statement.  

Kilo Goldmines has over 7,000 square kilometres of Archaean Kabalian greenstone in the Kilo-Moto area in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The company owns a 71.25 percent interest in the DRC entity that holds the Somituri Project Exploitation Permits.

It also has a joint venture with Rio Tinto Ltd. on potential iron ore licences in north-eastern DRC. 

Shares of Kilo Goldmines traded flat at 17 cents each today on Toronto’s junior venture exchange.
