Bowen Coking Coal (BCB) has appointed Matt Latimore to the Board as a Non-Executive Director.

“We are delighted to have Matt join the BCB Board, which is the first formal step in solidifying the relationship we’ve established, the ultimately will result in the trading activities of the marketing JV, which we have no doubt will be a success,” Managing Director Gerhard Redelinghuys said.

The joint venture with M Resources will be used to market, promote and sell coking coal from Bowen’s portfolio for blending purposes.

Additionally, the transaction documents provide Bowen with a finance facility of up to $15 million with it to be used for funding the development of its Isaac River Coking Coal Project and any other projects.
