Castillo Copper has proudly announced the immediate appointment of Geoff Reed as its new Non-Executive Director, who brings with him an abundance of experience in the mining sector. His appointment comes at a time when the company, which specialises in the exploration of copper mineralisation in Australia and Zambia, is targeting a substantial increase in its operational and activity capabilities, with emphasis placed on ensuring every available opportunity is taken, and shareholder value is created.
It’s hoped that Reed is able to offer the efficient supervision required for future exploratory success in the northwest Queensland and Zambian areas, although the company, no doubt, is far from concerned regarding whether or not the position is in safe hands.
New Executive brings a wealth of experience to boost planned copper exploration
Reed, a qualified and renowned geologist, boasts over 25 years of geographic information system and 3D technical work experience. His expertise lies in that of underground and opencast mining and exploration and having held previous senior positions in geological and resource management, Reed is a highly valuable asset to Castillo’s endeavours.
“With the global copper market in an upcycle, it is an excellent time to be joining Castillo’s Board as exploration activities are ramping up,” Reed states.
“Having reviewed Castillo’s asset portfolio, there are some prime targets at the Big One Deposit and Arya Prospect that deserve to be test drilled. Similarly, the Luanshya and Mkushi Projects in Zambia are highly prospective for copper mineralisation.
“This is an exciting opportunity with first-rate projects that offer significant exploration potential.”
Castillo confident in Reed’s abilities as it welcomes its latest senior addition
As if Reed’s previous work history wasn’t enough of a sell of his skillset to Castillo, he holds memberships with the Australian Institute of Geoscientists and Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy and is more than qualified to supply mineral resource assessments aligned with the JORC Code.
Chairman of Castillo Copper, Rob Scott, says the company is confident in Reed’s ability to fulfil the role of the position successfully.
“The Board is delighted to secure Geoff’s services, as he has an excellent pedigree and can add value immediately. As we now embark on major transformative exploration campaigns in Queensland and Zambia, it is now critical to have an experienced geologist on the Board to oversee our activities.
“On behalf of the Board, I welcome Geoff to the team and look forward to his input moving forward.”
