Former West Coast Eagles football player and Brownlow medallist, Chris Judd, has today partnered with Michael Kiernan's Territory Resources Ltd for a 12 month ambassador program focused on the Northern Territory.

The Judd - Territory Resources partnership will drive the company's community program, which involves supporting indigenous training and employment in the Northern Territory, and providing positive role model influences for residents in the region.

Chris Judd said Territory's community partnership is a win-win approach for businesses and communities.

"I am honoured that Territory Resources approached me to be an ambassador for the company's community program. Mining is such an important industry in Australia and I'm pleased to be provided the opportunity of supporting the regional communities in which Territory Resources operates," Chris Judd said.

Territory Resources' Chairman Michael Kiernan said the partnership with the acclaimed football personality provided a way to support the Northern Territory community, where the company's Frances Creek iron ore mine is situated south of Darwin.

"We have asked Chris to be Territory's ambassador because we are committed to being involved in the communities in which we operate, and his profile will make a positive contribution through leadership of the Northern Territory's youth," Mr Kiernan said.

"Territory's Frances Creek mine exports iron ore to China via the Port of Darwin, and the Northern Territory Government and local community have worked with us to provide important support to allow shipping of high grade ore, target production is 3 Mtpa."

Later in the year, Chris Judd will attend a footy clinic in Darwin, showing football skills to school children in the area.

"Chris' skills and abilities will be an inspiration to the children. We hope Chris' first visit to Darwin will serve as a way to give something back to the region," Mr Kiernan said.

In coming months, Chris Judd will be attending two Territory Resources' hosted events in Melbourne and Perth.
