Australian exploration and development company Plymouth Minerals Ltd (Plymouth) has announced board and management changes that are part of the company’s continued focus on the San Jose lithium-tin deposit (San Jose) in Spain.
Appointment of General Manager Corporate Development
Ryan Parkin has been appointed the Group’s General Manager of Corporate Development. According to Plymouth, Parkin has a proven business acumen which will be focussed on the key objectives of Plymouth in 2018; entering into offtake agreements to supply lithium carbonate and attracting strategic investment into the company and/or the San Jose lithium-tin Project.
Parkin, a Chartered Accountant of almost 15 years, brings to Plymouth specific experience in mergers and acquisitions, capital raisings and start-ups, in both the public and private corporate sectors. Having become a Member of Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand whilst at Ernst & Young in 2004, a move to corporate development and finance roles included 4 years with an ASX 200 company. Parkin has extensive experience in working closely with public and private company boards and providing financial modelling and business valuations services with participation in transactions across a range of industry sectors including infrastructure, technology, resources, agribusiness and property.
Plymouth Managing Director, Adrian Byass, said: “This is a value-adding change as we focus and rebalance our team as we prepare to change the name of the company from Plymouth Minerals to Infinity Lithium Corp. to better define the future of the company. We are delighted to welcome Ryan as a key member of our executive team as we embark on the next stage of our corporate expansion. With the delivery of a robust economic study on San Jose late in 2017 it is time to harness specific skills to drive San Jose forward.”
Resignation of Non-Executive Director
According to the company, Christian Cordier will resign with immediate effect from his role as Non-Executive Director.
Managing Director of Plymouth Minerals Ltd, Adrian Byass, commented: “I wish to thank Christian for his support of the company and efforts in advancing the Gabonese potash assets.

He has been a valuable member of the company and we wish him well for future endeavours.”
