FYI Resources strengthen leadership team

Investors appear unfazed by the company’s positive announcement, sending FYI Resources shares to a near 8-month low.

According to its release, FYI Resources advised it has secured the services of Perth-based qualified chemical engineer, Claudio Di Prinzio.

The appointment will see Mr Di Prinzio take up the role of executive manager in the Operations and Technology department. Responsibilities will include representing the company’s interest in the joint high-purity alumina (HPA) project development with Alcoa Australia.

In addition, Mr Di Prinzio will be tasked with establishing safety parameters, quality control, and sustainability processes and control procedures.

Mr Di Prinzio brings a wealth of knowledge, having acquired over 30 years of experience in project development management, commissioning and operations management. This relates to a number of different project sizes, commodities and jurisdictions specialising in alumina and battery, as well as critical minerals.

Previously, Mr Di Prinzio’s most notable appointments included operations manager for the Kwinana Lithium Hydroxide plant at Tianqi Lithium. Furthermore, he also held the role of acting general manager in Engineering and Asset Management for Rio Tinto Limited (ASX: RIO), and global technology manager at Alcoa Aluminium.

FYI managing director, Roland Hill commented:

The appointment of Claudio to FYI’s executive management team, and the HPA joint development team, is key step in the company’s goal to guide the HPA project into production. Claudio will play an instrumental role in the project delivery team working in close collaboration with Alcoa. We view Claudio’s extensive experience in being invaluable to the project development.
