Castillo Copper Ltd elevates base and specialty metals expertise with two new non-executive directors

Castillo Copper Ltd (ASX:CCZ, LSE:CCZ) has tapped David Drakeley and Jack Sedgwick as non-executive directors, effective immediately, following the resignation of Geoff Reed to pursue a new opportunity.

Drakeley is an experienced field geologist with experience leading Castillo’s drilling campaign in Broken Hill and Queensland.

He will oversee design and implementation of all future exploratory work across the group’s portfolio.

Sedgwick is a strategist and business improvement specialist with blue-chip experience across the mining and energy sectors, including at Rio Tinto’s iron ore expansion projects.

He will oversee portfolio optimisation and the group’s finances.

Focus on base metals and rare earths

“The group is delighted to welcome David Drakeley and Jack Sedgwick to the board at an opportune time in the base and specialty metals cycle,” Castillo Copper chair Ged Hall said.

“In elevating David to the board, we look forward to his ongoing work in the field where he has made a significant contribution to our exploration campaigns in the Broken Hill and Mt Isa regions.

“Recruiting Jack to the board will enable his skill set to be leveraged to optimise the current portfolio and refine the corporate strategy to ensure shareholder value is maximised.

“Finally, the board would like to thank Geoff Reed for his invaluable contributions during his tenure.”
