Red Rock welcomes James Ladner to the board as a non-executive director. His listed company experience, finance skills, and contacts in the North American and European investment communities will assist the Company as it moves to the next stage of its growth.
It is with regret that the Company announces at the same time the resignation of Robert Weicker after 5 years as a non-executive director. His increased work schedule and travel commitments have led him to the conclusion that he will be unable to devote time on a regular basis to Red Rock. The Company is indebted to him for much useful advice over the years, as well as for the introduction of the Malawi tenements now held by the Company’s associate Resource Star Ltd (ASX (Other OTC: ATKEF.PK – news) :RSL). it is pleasing to report that he will continue to make himself available to Red Rock as a geological consultant.
