Commenting, Mr. Schlosser said: “I am very pleased to be given the opportunity to become involved in the growth and development of such an exciting company. Certainly, from all discussions that I have held thus far, I have the impression that the company is already in good stead. I look forward to contributing to the already good team on the ground and support improvements that could be made.

I intend to stand back and observe for an initial period to obtain a full understanding of the operation, its technical basis and the team involved; subsequently transitioning into a leadership role and assisting to realise the best from the current working asset.

With such a strong base, Austar Gold has the potential to grow and blossom into an explorer, developer and operator of strategic assets for the benefit of all stakeholders.”
