Latin appoints new COO to accelerate Salinas strategy

1 March 2024 15:55

Latin Resources continues to build out its leadership team to take its flagship Salina’s flagship to the next stage having appointed Aaron Maurer as the company’s Chief Operating Officer.

The news comes weeks after the explorer set Peter Oliver as its Executive Director and Chairman of the Company’s Development Committee also with eyes on accelerating Salina’s development.

Established Experience

Maurer’s most significant experience comes from his time as Executive
General Manager – Operations for Australian Resources giant Mineral Resources where he oversaw the Mt Marion Lithium mine and their three Iron Ore operations.

Maurer’s most recent role was as head of operations of Atlantic Lithium where he worked on the company’s transition from lithium explorer to lithium producer with the Ewoyaa Lithium Project, which is set to be Ghana’s first lithium mine.

These skills in particular will be vital for Latin as Salinas enters a critical point in its development, with the explorer recently netting a massive 56% increase in the projet’s mineral resource estimate which now stands at an outstanding 70.3 million tonnes @1.27% Li2O.

Additionally, Maurer also held leadership positions at W Resources NL, Sydvaranger
Gruve AS in Norway, Peabody Energy Australia, BHP Billiton and Thiess.

Leading into the Future

The company said that the skills and experience Maurer will provide will be pivotal into taking Salinas through to production.

“His skillset of achieving production, financial, and safety targets by developing committed and capable teams of professionals will further enhance our development team greatly,” Managing Director Chris Gale said.

“His extensive experience and expertise in lithium operations will be instrumental as we continue to advance our flagship Salinas Lithium Project through development and ultimately production to position ourselves as key players in the global battery metals market.”

LRS’s Australian Securities Exchange-listed share price is currently trading at $0.200 (1.40 pm UTC+ 8 hours).
