Venture Minerals (VMS) has appointed Geoff Halloran and John Hall to help develop its Riley Iron Ore Mine in northwest Tasmania.

Geoff Halloran has been appointed General Manager of Operations. He brings 20 years’ experience as a Mining Geologist and has held senior management positions with a focus on managing iron ore start-ups through to the production stage.

John Hall has been appointed as Construction and Commissioning Manager. He brings over 30 years’ experience as a project manager. The company believes his skills are ideally suited for the construction and commissioning stage of the wet screening plant at the Riley Project.

“Venture welcomes the addition of several new members to the Riley team, headed by experienced iron ore mine operator, Geoff Halloran as General Manager, John Hall as Construction and Commissioning Manager, and an iron ore experienced shipping officer,” Managing Director Andrew Radonjic said.

Pleasingly, the installation of the wet screening plant has begun with steel fabrication and engineering company, Crisp Bros and Haywards, now installing the first of the structural steel that makes up the plant’s framework.

The installation phase will be followed by commissioning and this is expected to occur late next month.

Venture expects the first shipment of iron ore to be in the June quarter, with the iron ore price expected to remain strong.

Company shares have dropped 1.72 per cent and are trading at 5.7 cents at 11:41 am AEDT.
