Como-based GME Resources Ltd has appointed mining engineer David Varcoe as managing director, replacing Jamie Sullivan.

Mr Varcoe has over 20 years experience including extensive senior managerial and technical positions with Australia and international resource companies.

His experience includes positions at Sons of Gwalia, Centaur, WMC, and Goldfields St Ives and for the past four years as principal consultant Rio Tinto Technical Services based in the United Kingdom and Perth, Western Australia.

Mr Varcoe's appointment will coincide with the anticipated commencement of trial mining at the company's Niwest Nickel Laterite project, located near Murrin Murrin in WA, and subsequent trial Nickel Heap Leach program that is to be completed at the Norilsk Nickel Cawse plant site.

Mr Varcoe's technical and senior management experience and his expertise in all facets of mine development, operations, and strategic planning are considered by the board to be key attributes for the company as it progresses through the feasibility and development stage into production.

To further assist the new managing director, the company has also strengthened the feasibility study management team through the appointment of a project geologist and a process engineer.

Current managing director, Jamie Sullivan, will step down on February 18 and remain as an executive director.
