“I am delighted to formally welcome Ms. Renee Brickner to the Kimber Resources team as our new Vice President, Investor Relations” said Gordon Cummings, President and CEO of Kimber Resources. “Renee has joined Kimber at an opportune time as we progress with a very successful drill program at depth at the Carmen deposit with good potential for expanding and upgrading high grade gold-silver mineral resources at Monterde. I have every confidence that Renee will add significant value to Kimber as we strengthen our management team and advance strongly towards a production decision at Monterde.”
Renee Brickner holds a Bachelor of Science in Geology from the University of Saskatchewan and has over 12 years of experience in the resource industry. Her experience includes exploration geology, investor relations, corporate compliance and development, international corporate and investor support and technical review. Ms. Brickner has worked with a variety of Canadian based and internationally based companies and her experience includes resource projects ranging from exploration, development through to production. Her most recent position as Corporate Communications was with Crescent Gold Limited, an Australian based gold production company with projects in Western |Australia.
Kimber owns mineral concessions covering in excess of 39,000 hectares in the prospective Sierra Madre gold-silver belt, including the Monterde property, where three gold-silver mineral resources have already been defined. The most advanced of these, the Carmen deposit, has been extensively drilled and has undergone detailed geologic modeling. The completion of the Updated Preliminary Economic Assessment for Monterde in 2011 represented a significant step forward for Kimber and supports further development and more advanced economic studies at the Monterde deposits. The subsequent discovery of high grade gold-silver mineralization below the mineral resources used in the preliminary economic assessment adds a potentially significant new dimension to the opportunities at Monterde.
