Azure Minerals Ltd has appointed Glenn Jardine as Chief Operating Officer for the company. Jardine will lead the development of the company’s flagship Oposura zinc-lead-silver project, located in the northern Mexican state of Sonora.

Jardine is a highly-experienced mining executive and has overseen the development of several precious and base metals mining projects from discovery through feasibility and construction to production, including the negotiation of concentrate off-take agreements and project funding arrangements. He has been closely involved with Azure’s project and business development activities in Mexico for approximately the past two years on a consulting basis.

The appointment of Jardine follows Azure’s acquisition of the Oposura project. Oposura is an advanced-stage, high-grade, massive sulphide-hosted, zinc-lead-silver project where a mineral resource drill-out program is in progress. The company is concurrently undertaking development studies, including metallurgical testwork, mine design, hydrological and environmental studies.

Azure’s Managing Director, Tony Rovira commented: “The appointment of Glenn Jardine adds significant momentum to the development of Azure’s projects.”

“As a mining engineer with extensive experience in the completion of feasibility studies and the development, construction and operation of several mines, Glenn brings to the Company a wealth of knowledge and proficiency that is particularly relevant to the progression of Oposura from an exploration project to a mining operation,” he continued. “I am confident that this appointment will accelerate the transition of Azure from an exploration company to a minerals producer.”
