Bannerman Resources Limited is pleased to announce the appointment of Brandon Munro as Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer. Munro succeeds Len Jubber, who has resigned to pursue other business interests. Munro´s appointment is effective immediately and the transition in leadership will be assisted by Jubber over a one month period. Munro returns to Bannerman after serving as General Manager – Corporate Development and General Manager (Namibia) between 2009 and 2011. Since then Munro was Managing Director of ASX-listed Kunene Resources Limited, a company focused on base metals exploration in Namibia, until completion of a reverse takeover in late 2015. Munro is a Non-Executive Director of ASX-listed technology companies Rewardle Holdings Limited and Novatti Group Limited. His commitment to community includes serving as a Trustee of Save the Rhino Trust, a high-profile Namibian NGO.
Ronnie Beevor, Chairman of Bannerman, said: “The Board is very pleased to be appointing Brandon as Managing Director and CEO – someone who has previously worked for Bannerman, who has lived in Namibia and who has built up extensive relationships with the Namibian Government and the wider community.” Munro said: “I am delighted to be re-joining Bannerman. I look forward to taking Bannerman to the next stage of its development, by further enhancing the economics of the world class Etango uranium project and maximising its value for shareholders.” Beevor went on to say: “The Board and I regret Jubber´s decision to leave the Company and would like to express our sincere gratitude for his outstanding contribution to Bannerman over the past 7 years. He has overseen the completion of the Etango Definitive Feasibility Study, the building and operation of the Etango Heap Leach Demonstration Plant that has more than confirmed the rapid heap leaching characteristics of the Etango orebody, and the recent Optimisation Study work on the DFS. Len also completed the significant corporate transactions in 2015 that have resulted in the Company owning 100% of Etango and becoming debt free. We wish Len all the best for the future.”
Jubber said “Whilst 2015 was a significant year for Bannerman, the groundwork spanned many more years. I am proud to have been part of that journey and pleased, at this natural juncture, to leave the company with a solid platform from which it can pursue the development of the globally significant Etango project in a rising uranium price environment.” [nsx.com.na]
