Newly minted Triton Minerals M.D Garth Higgo has wasted no time placing his stamp on the company with the appointment of a new Chief Operating Officer, a new Chief Financial Officer and a new Non Executive Director.

Mr Higgo was himself only appointed as Chief Executive Officer in December 2015 and was previously the Global Director of Mining for Aurecon Group. Prior to that he was a Global Director of Calibre Global in Australia where he was largely responsible for transforming the company into the largest heavy haul rail project delivery and engineering company in the world.

Mr Higgo previously held the role of COO for Consolidated Minerals and CEO of Firestone Energy.

Former Calibre Global colleague Rodney Baxter has also been appointed as a Non-Executive Director of Triton Minerals and comes to the company with a wealth of experience in mining and public companies having previously served on the boards of Murchison Metals and Jabiru Metals.

The company has also appointed Patrick Ellis as Chief Operating Officer and Richard Jarvis to the position of Chief Financial Officer.

Mr Ellis has previously been an executive of industrial heavyweights Leighton Group, Newcrest Mining, Allied Mining and MacMahon Holdings.

The company says that it will be well served by Mr Ellis’ new venture and major project development experience in accountability positions with over 40 mining and processing operations across the globe including in Mozambique, the home of Triton’s world class graphite operation.

Mr Jarvis also has significant experience as a Chartered Accountant operating across multi jurisdictions including Africa.

Mr Higgo said “the Company is now well positioned for the future. I believe Triton has the foundations of an excellent Board and Management team to take the Company forward through to mining and production. The Management team has substantial experience in exploration, development and mining in Africa and I am confident that this new team will be able to deliver in the growth of the Company and shareholder value.”
