New CEO

Beckmand has more than 20 years of experience in the mining industry.

Prior to being CEO of Kuniko, a position he officially started today, Beckmand was CEO of Norway’s Sydvaranger iron project. He is also currently an independent director of Nordic Mining ASA and was previously managing director and CEO of formerly-ASX-listed Northern Iron.

Beckmand is based in Norway, as are Kuniko’s battery metals projects.

Kuniko chair Gavin Rezos commented on the company’s newest appointment:

(Beckmand) is an outstanding mining executive who is enthusiastic about our exceptional portfolio of projects in Norway and fully embraces our next generation ethos of responsible, sustainable mining practices to produce ethically sourced and secure supply battery minerals for an electro-mobile society.

Antony is based in Norway and with non-executive director Birgit Liodden in Oslo, we are well placed to advance our projects in Norway whilst working closely with all stakeholders including government and local communities from an early stage of development.
