Jupiter Mines has announced that it has appointed a new CEO from Pallinghurst Resources.
Priyank Thapliyal has been appointed CEO of Jupiter Mines, resigning from his current position of Executive Director at Pallinghurst Resources.
Pallinghurst Resources, it should be noted, has an 18.4% interest stake in Jupiter Mines.
Jupiter Mines is an independent mining company based in Perth, Western Australia, with a portfolio of projects both in WA and the Kalahari Manganese Fields in the Northern Cape of South Africa.
The move comes at a strong time for the company as the Kalahari Manganese Fields development, the Tshipi Kalahari Manganese Mine, has produced extremely positive production figures.
A world class manganese mine, an open pit mine designed to produce 2.4mtpa of managense ore, had been set a target of 3mtpa by the 2018 financial year.
The company recently revealed that to date, it has already shipped 1.88-million tonnes in the first seven months of 2017, and is well on its way to reaching and potentially surpassing that 3 million mark.
