Kopore adds veteran mining executive to board

Kopore Metals has appointed James Eggins as its new Non-Executive Chairman. Eggins is the former Chair of the Uranium Information Centre and a former board member of the World Nuclear Association. He previously spent 15 years at WMC holding management positions at Olympic Dam and was also part of the management team and uranium heavyweight Paladin Resources.

His work history spans across a diverse resources base that includes mineral sands, refined copper, precious metals and rare earth minerals and he has also been involved in mine-to-market supply chains in both Australia and Africa according to Kopore.

The newly appointed Non-Executive Chairman has also held senior management positions at Queensland Mines where he was involved with the Nabarlek uranium project in the Northern Territory and he was the Divisional Manager for the Olympic Dam Marketing team during his 15-year tenure WMC Resources.

More recently he was involved in marketing and business development with Greenland Minerals who has been developing a base metals project in the mineral rich province of Greenland.

James has been intimately involved with the uranium sector for almost four decades and I look forward to working with him to identify new and exciting opportunities for the Company, as well as advancing our Horseshoe West joint venture project with Murchison Copper Mines Pty Ltd and our Botswana assets in the Kalahari Copper Belt.

Outside of the boardroom, the company recently unveiled a copper-gold soil anomaly in an underexplored area of its Horseshoe West Prospect, located some 1,500m west of the Horseshoe Lights Mine and 140km north of Meekatharra.

Kopore has also renewed three of its Botswana prospecting licenses for an additional two year period and recently extended its licences across its high priority Kara Dome target that sits nearby.
