Marquee Resources Ltd (ASX:MQR) has appointed Toby Hughes to the position of chief geologist of North American operations.

Hughes will lead the upcoming exploration program at the Werner Lake Cobalt project in Ontario, Canada.

Resource expansion exploration program to commence shortly

The appointment’s timing is fortuitous as Marquee is about to embark on an aggressive exploration program to significantly increase the existing cobalt resource.

Werner Lake’s Indicated Resource is 79,400 tonnes grading 0.43% cobalt and remains open in all directions.

Marquee has shortlisted a number of drilling contractors and is expected to make a selection in the near future.

Hughes has previously been heavily involved in Werner Lake

Marquee’s managing director Charles Thomas said: “We are pleased to welcome Mr Hughes to the Marquee team.

“Mr Hughes has previously been heavily involved in the Werner Lake project, so for Marquee to attract someone of the calibre of Toby to the team with local on ground knowledge of the project, is a significant coup.

“We’re excited as we tick another box with Toby’s appointment and now move closer to embarking on the aggressive exploration program at Werner Lake”
