Artemis Resources has appointed Wayne Bramwell to the new role of Chief Executive Officer as the Pilbara-focused company transitions from explorer to producer.
Mr Bramwell will be in charge of bringing the Radio Hill operations back into production. He is an experienced metallurgist and mining executive with over 26 years of international and Australian project development expertise across the base metals, precious metals and bulk commodity sectors.
He has extensive experience dealing with international financial institutions and brings to the Company his negotiating skills with international off-take partners and trading houses, having previously negotiated two project level strategic joint ventures with Japan’s Toyota Tsusho Corporation and Nittetsu Mining.
Artemis’s Executive Chairman David Lenigas said Mr Bramwell had demonstrated abilities to both develop and manage projects as well as to communicate effectively with the wider market.
Wayne’s background in metallurgy, engineering and his experience in developing strategic partnerships with potential concentrate off-takers will be extremely valuable to Artemis as we move towards bringing our key Radio Hill Operations near Karratha back in to production.”
The news comes as Artemis kicks off drilling a +3.3km “super-deep” diamond drill hole in the Pilbara in a bid to gain a deeper understanding of the Pilbara geology.
