Mustang Chairman Ian Daymond said Dr Kirby, who is a metallurgist with more than 40 years' experience, brings a wealth of corporate and technical expertise to Mustang.
In particular, over the last couple of years his primary focus has been the development of an African based graphite project. This extensive knowledge and experience working in the graphite sector as well as his previous technical experience with gemstones will be invaluable to Mustang.
"Evan's graphite skills and knowledge together with extensive processing, plant design and commissioning experience will be very valuable for Mustang," Mr Daymond said.
