Global Strategic Metals Appoints Interim Executive Director

Global Strategic Metals (ASX: GSZ) has appointed non-executive director Benjamin Hill as its interim executive director with effect from 7 February 2014.

He replaces Anthony Roberts who had stepped down as the company's executive director on the same day.

During the December 2013 quarter, the company completed the extraction of two 500 tonne bulk samples from its 80%-owned Wolfsberg Lithium Project in Austria.

Some of this ore will be used to update the metallurgical test work carried out by the North Carolina State Minerals Research Laboratory in the 1980's.

Recent advances in processing technology, particularly grinding techniques, may have a significant impact on both the recovery rate and the quality of the concentrates produced.

The company has fulfilled all conditions required for the grant of mining leases over the project, which it expects to occur in the near future.
