Martinick new chairman at Windimurra

Windimurra Vanadium Ltd has announced the appointment of Dr Wolf Martinick as chairman, replacing previous chairman Michael Kiernan who resigned from the company last week.

Dr Martinick, an environmental scientist, has been a non-executive director of Windimurra Vanadium since December 2006 and assumes his new role immediately.  

Dr Martinick has more than 35 years experience in the mineral resource industry and has been closely involved with projects in Australasia, Africa, China, India, Eastern Europe, Mexico and parts of the former Soviet Union.

Windimurra Vanadium managing director Dr Iain Scott said the board was united in its view that Dr Martinick was eminently qualified to assume the role of chairman.

"Dr Martinick has considerable experience in securing approvals and funding for developing mineral projects, and as a non-executive director this experience has already been highly valuable in the development of the Windimurra project," he said.

Dr Martinick said its focus was commissioning production of the Windimurra project.

"With all principal environmental approvals secured, key supply contracts, including gas, in place, the ten year, $300 million contract to build, own, operate and transfer the beneficiation plant underway, and project financing complete, our focus is commissioning production on time and on budget," he said.

Dr Martinick is a non-executive director of a number of ASX companies including Azure Minerals Ltd; Carbine Resources Limited; Sun Resources Limited; Uran Limited; and is chairman of Ezenet Limited.

He is also the founding director chairman of Weatherly International Limited, an AIM listed mining house with extensive copper exploration, mining and smelting interests in Namibia and Zambia.

Windimurra had commenced recruiting additional independent directors to the board.
