Golden West Resources has announced it has reached an in-principle native title agreement for its Wiluna West project.

In a statement Golden West said it anticipated signing the mining agreement with the local indigenous people in the next two months.

The agreement respects traditional rights and customs of the Tarlpa people and encompassed a number of employment, cultural and business initiatives.

Golden West executive director, Mick Wilson, said the agreement represented a major milestone for the Company in its endeavours to bring the Wiluna West iron project into production.

"We have already kicked a number of goals in respect to indigenous employment," he said, "with 10 local indigenous employees that represent 50 per cent of our field based personnel, some of which have been with GWR since 2006."

Meanwhile, Golden West Resources has also announced the appointment of Gary Lyons as a non executive director to fill one of two board vacancies.

Mr Lyon is the managing director of the Heiniger Groups Australasian operations. He is also chairman of Stallion Station.

He was recently appointed as a non executive director of Fairstar Resources.
