Mr Warren Hallam has been appointed as Managing Director and CEO of Millennium Minerals effective from August 27.
Warren is a highly regarded mining executive and Director with wide ranging experience in a variety of board and senior management roles.
This has been primarily in the mining industry with ASX-300 mining company Metals X and Western Mining Corporation.
As part of the senior leadership team at Metals X, from 2004-2018, Warren played an important role in purchasing and transforming the Renison mine into a world-class tin business.
During this position, he also played a critical role in the development of Metals X through the merger with Westgold Resources and the acquisition of Alacer Australia, Fortnum Gold and Meekatharra Gold.
Between 1988 and 2003 Warren held a range of senior roles with Western Mining Corporation and was also a Manager of Corporate Planning.
His responsibilities included the strategic and business plans for all business and functional units.
He holds a Master of Science (Mineral Economics) from the WA School of Mines at Curtin University and a Bachelor of Applied Science (Metallurgy) from Ballarat University and a Graduate Diploma in Business from Curtin.
Millenium Chairman Greg Bittar said the Board is pleased to have someone like Warren on the team.
“His extensive technical knowledge, hands-on operating experience and financial commercial acumen will be invaluable as we work to complete the various expansion projects currently underway at Nullagine,” he said.
Warren will succeed Peter Cash who is stepping down as CEO after 4.5 years of dedicated service to Millennium.
Peter is a highly experienced mining executive with more than 20 years of experience working in both Australia and overseas.
He has held a range of senior executive positions in corporate development, exploration and investor relations in junior and mid-tier resource companies such as Focus Minerals, Talisman Mining and Noble Mineral Resources.
Peter joined Millennium two years ago – initially as General Manager of Corporate Development where he played a key role in the turnover strategy and was then appointed as CEO in March 2017.
In light of this news, Millennium shares are slightly down 4 per cent, trading for 12 cents in a $111.3 million market cap.
