MGX Minerals Inc. (CSE:XMG) (FKT:1MG) (OTCQB:MGXMF) is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Ian Graham as Vice President of Operations for the Company.
Mr. Graham is an accomplished mining executive with over 20 years of international experience exploring for and developing mineral deposits. He has spent over half of his career working for major mining companies, including roles at Rio Tinto and Anglo American. Mr. Graham possesses industrial minerals experience and is well known for his successes within the diamond sector.
From 1990-1994 Mr. Graham acted as Principal Geologist in exploration for Anglo American and partner in De Beers Group’s South Africa division. In 1994, he joined Rio Tinto in Canada as the evaluation manager for the Diavik diamond mine, then went on to become Chief Geologist for diamonds with Rio Tinto’s Project Generation Group. During his 15 years at Rio Tinto, Ian was involved with the evaluation and pre-development of several projects, including the Diavik diamond mine in the Northwest Territories and the Resolution copper deposit in Arizona. While at Rio Tinto he also oversaw permitting for the Eagle nickel mine in Michigan and played a key role in developing the initial economic assessment for the Bunder diamond project in India. Following his departure from Rio Tinto, Ian led the formation of a company with the intent of acquiring the Jadar lithium project in Serbia from Rio Tinto, though Rio Tinto did not proceed with the divestment. Mr. Graham is a geologist with a B.Sc. in Geology and Applied Geology and a B.Sc. (Honors) in Geology from the University of Natal in South Africa.
“We are extremely pleased to have Ian join the team,” stated MGX Chairman Marc Bruner. “Ian will draw from his extensive experience in hardrock mining to develop our diverse and growing mineral assets,” he added. “The rise in clean energy technologies is creating changes in the extractives economy, including a spike in lithium demand. Whether through petroleum brine or hardrock mining, we are confident we can meet this demand with Ian’s leadership.”
