Azure Minerals Limited (ASX: AZS), (“Azure” or “Company”) is pleased to advise that it has appointed Mr Glenn Jardine as Chief Operating Officer for the Company. Mr Jardine will lead the development of the Company’s flagship Oposura zinc-lead-silver project, located in the northern Mexican state of Sonora.
Mr Jardine is a highly experienced mining executive and has overseen the development of several precious and base metals mining projects from discovery through feasibility and construction to production, including the negotiation of concentrate off-take agreements and project funding arrangements. He has been closely involved with Azure’s project and business development activities in Mexico for approximately the past two years on a consulting basis.
The appointment of Mr Jardine follows Azure’s acquisition of the Oposura Project. Oposura is an advanced-stage, high-grade, massive sulphide-hosted, zinc-lead-silver project where a mineral resource drill-out program is in progress. The Company is concurrently undertaking development studies, including metallurgical testwork, mine design, hydrological and environmental studies.
Commenting on the appointment of Mr Jardine, Azure’s Managing Director, Mr Tony Rovira said: “The appointment of Glenn Jardine adds significant momentum to the development of Azure’s projects.
“As a mining engineer with extensive experience in the completion of feasibility studies and the development, construction and operation of several mines, Glenn brings to the Company a wealth of knowledge and proficiency that is particularly relevant to the progression of Oposura from an exploration project to a mining operation.
“I am confident that this appointment will accelerate the transition of Azure from an exploration company to a minerals producer.” For enquiries, please contact:
