Emerging gold producer Reed Resources (ASX: RDR) has made key appointments to support a production resumption at the flagship Meekatharra Gold project in 2012 Western Australia.
David Lim was appointed chief financial officer, Geoffrey Cheong was appointed processing manager and Kenneth Fairless as maintenance superintendent.
The appointments further expand the management and operations experience of Reed Resources and position the company to bring its flagship Meekatharra Gold Project back into production in late 2012.
Reed Resources managing director, Chris Reed, said the new appointments provide the company with an exciting blend of relevant experience to progress the Meekatharra Gold Project to production in an efficient and timely manner.
“The company is at an extremely exciting stage, with more than three million ounces of gold resources, a total reserve base in excess of half a million ounces and growing, and a clear plan and commitment from management to bring the project back into production.
“The enhancement of our management and operational team will be instrumental to advancing the Meekatharra gold assets. We have previously stated that we expect to be in production by the end of 2012 and the Company anticipates releasing the results of the Feasibility Study in February,” Reed said.
