Nova Appoints Expert Mining Executive to the Board
Nova CEO, Mr Christopher Gerteisen commented: "Having worked with Rodrigo as a consultant over the past couple of months we have been extremely impressed with the contributions he has made as we embark on the next stage of developing the Estelle Gold Trend. Rodrigo's vast experience in unlocking the value of mining projects across the world, including specific expertise in large tonnage bulk mining operations, has already proven valuable as we progress our next level studies, and we are extremely pleased that he has agreed to join the Nova Board at this exciting time in the Company's development. At his tenure at Evolution Mining Limited, amongst many other projects and sites, Rodrigo was involved with the Cowal Open Pit project and was also instrumental in the Red Lake mine turnaround. In addition, he has worked in many other acquisitions, studies, startups and turn arounds through Harpia Group and other past positions, and we look forward to working with him as part of our experienced mining team as we continue on our path to production, with our ultimate goal of becoming the next tier one, global gold producer."
Mr Rodrigo Pasqua commented: "I'm very excited to join Nova and assist them in their vision of unlocking one the most exciting undeveloped gold resources on the market. The Company is led by a team of genuine, dedicated and capable individuals committed to developing Estelle as the next significant US gold producer. The combination of the bulk, low-cost mining approach combined with the latest intercepts seen at RPM (132m @ 10.1 g/t Au), is prompt to deliver very interesting returns to shareholders."
