Summit Minerals (ASX:SUM) add Gower He to the helmOctober 13, 2023
Summit Minerals has appointed Mr Jiahe “Gower” He as its new Chief Executive Officer and added a widely respected and highly experienced mining executive and battery metals industry professional to the helm.
The bulk of Gower’s 20-plus-years in the industry came at Mitsui & Co, overseeing strategic trade and investment decisions across a variety of commodities for one of the world’s largest and most diversified trading, investment and services enterprises.
And as an Executive Director of Delta Lithium, he was part of the company’s transformation from a junior gold explorer into one of Australia’s fastest rising lithium players.
Summit Chairman Peretz Schapiro said the company was delighted to have appointed its new chief executive.
“We are confident that his vast and diverse experience and network within the resources sector will be key to unlocking shareholder value at our Company as we continue to progress our array of exciting projects. On behalf of our board and shareholders, I would like to wish Gower tremendous success over the coming months and years at Summit,” Mr Schapiro said.
And the company’s new helmsman said he was extremely delighted to join such an esteemed and motivated team and looked forward to progressing the company’s battery metal assets.
“Canada is the next lithium frontier and an important region for Summit to focus on to maximise return to our loyal shareholders. Exciting times ahead,” Mr He said.
The exciting times have just begun at Castor, where the company just last month got boots on the ground for its first field program in the James Bay lithium province.
Early exploration yielded over 100 targets for investigation and 228 potential pegmatite outcrops at the project, sitting in a relatively untouched but fast rising end of James Bay.
Its neighbours have returned some high-end early sampling results and Summit will now look to make its own mark on the region under its new leadership.
