Tempus Resources Ltd - Tempus Resources appoints industry veteran Jason Bahnsen as president
The new appointment comes into effect on September 1

Tempus Resources Ltd (ASX:TMR) has appointed Jason Bahnsen as president in a move expected to

provide a strong in-country management focus as the company aggressively pursues evaluation and development of the Blackdome-Elizabeth Gold Project in Canada.

The appointment is effective from September 1 and comes as Tempus moves towards a planned listing on the TSX Venture Exchange.

Bahnsen is a mining engineer with more than 30 years of experience in natural resources finance and operations.

“Great combination”

Tempus managing director Brendan Borg said: “Jason has a great combination of mining engineering and capital markets experience.

“He’s well placed to lead practical works as we evaluate and strive to recommence production at Blackdome-Elizabeth, and at the same time he can help us present the company to the capital markets in North America.”

Broad range of roles

Bahnsen’s career has spanned a broad range of roles in the resources industry after beginning

in mine development, working for underground mine contracting companies in Canada, Indonesia and Australia.

He has held production roles at several gold mine operations in capacities such as mine planning engineer, project engineer and shift boss.

Investment banking experience

Following several years with Rio Tinto in Australia where he was involved in mine feasibility study work and business development roles, he moved into investment banking.

Bahnsen spent around 10 years as a resource banker and worked with various firms including Deutsche Bank, Macquarie Bank and Fox Davies Capital on major international resource acquisition and equity market transactions.

He then became involved in resource company development and has held CEO roles for several private and listed resource exploration and development companies.

Looking to “unlock potential”

The new president said: “I am pleased to be joining Tempus as we accelerate evaluation and development of our high-grade gold project in Canada.

“I look forward to working with the existing team to unlock the significant potential we see in the Project, against the backdrop of a continuing strong gold price.”

Progress at Blackdome-Elizabeth

Tempus recently initiated a drilling program at the Blackdome-Elizabeth project in British Columbia to focus on verifying and expanding upon the known gold and silver mineralisation within the 350 square kilometre licence area that remains relatively unexplored.

The company has drilled 11 holes for a total of 2,165 metres and geological logging indicates that in all the holes drilled so far, the alteration zones and veins have been intersected and the area is expected to host mineralisation.
