Former Sedgman manager Luke Graham has been appointed as chief executive and managing director of mineral sands miner Strandline Resources.

Former Sedgman manager Luke Graham has been appointed as chief executive and managing director of mineral sands miner Strandline Resources.

Mr Graham replaces outgoing managing director Tom Eadie from today, and will receive a base salary of $330,000 per annum.

He previously served as regional manager of global minerals engineering at Sedgman, which was recently acquired by CIMIC Group.

Strandline chairman Didier Murcia said Mr Eadie would remain with the Tanzania-focused mining company as a non-executive director.

“After a comprehensive review and search, the board concluded that Luke’s leadership and considerable experience in major project development and delivery in the global mining and minerals sector, along with his strong track record of successfully managing multi-functional operations and driving significant business growth in soft market conditions, made him an outstanding candidate for the role,” Mr Eadie said.

“Luke is a dynamic high-calibre leader, supported by a comprehensive understanding of the mineral processing industry, including being instrumental in the development, negotiation and execution of a current major international mineral sands project.

“Further, Luke has first-hand knowledge of Strandline’s current projects through his involvement in our business activities over the last 5 years as an engineering contracting partner.”

Strandline shares were unchanged at 0.6 cents each at the close.
