Core Lithium unveils new boss

The Core Lithium share price is surging on news Manderson, who offers 28 years of experience in the mining and minerals sector, will take on the top job at the company next week.

It comes after the company’s founding managing director Stephen Biggins announced his resignation in March.

Manderson was previously Rio Tinto’s general manager in sustaining capital where he focused on the company’s Pilbara operations.

He has also held senior leadership roles in Rio Tinto’s aluminium division and management roles at Energy Resources Australia in the Northern Territory.

Core Lithium chair Greg English commented on Manderson’s appointment, saying:

There are many synergies between Gareth’s previous senior roles in managing complex mine, mineral processing, port, township, and logistics operations during his tenure at Rio Tinto and the Finniss Project.

Gareth’s previous Northern Territory experience and managing the effects of the annual wet season will also be essential as we plan to be operating in this environment for years to come.

Manderson said he is “delighted” to have been offered the top job at “this vital time in the company’s growth”.

He will receive an annual base salary of around $693,000 before super, as well as both short and long term incentives.
