Asiamet strengthens board with appointment of Peter Bird

New board level appointments will strengthen Asiamet as it moves through the next stages in the development of the BKM copper project

Boardroom changes herald progress at Asiamet

As Asiamet Resources Ltd (LON:ARS) transitions from pure exploration into a more development-oriented phase, the company’s chief executive Tony Manini has decided to assume the position of Executive Chairman.

Peter Bird will join the board as chief executive.

Bird brings with him wide experience in mining finance, having held positions at Western Mining Corporation, Merrill Lynch Equities and Newmont Mining. He has held senior executive roles at Newcrest Mining and Normandy Mining, two of Australia's largest gold producers with substantial operations in Indonesia, which is also where Asiamet holds its assets.

Bird was most recently the managing director of Heemskirk Consolidated, an Australian listed producer of industrial minerals in Canada.

“The addition of Peter's experience across all facets of the mining business in both major and junior company environments including recent project financing and development experience is highly relevant to Asiamet's current status,” said Manini.

“As a top rated mining analyst, investor relations manager and Managing Director his extensive capital markets experience will prove highly beneficial as we look to further expand our investor base. It speaks volumes for the quality of our project portfolio and team that Peter has elected to join Asiamet at this time and we warmly welcome him to the Company."
